Drinks Americas (DKAM) New Industry Hire Supports Strategic Focus On Craft Beer

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Drinks Americas (OTN: DKAM) a leading U.S. broker for authentic Mexican craft beer proves to be right on trend with the roll out of Day of the Dead™ Craft Beer. Just six months ago DKAM decided to focus resources on the growing category of specialty craft beer and within that short period of time they are now available in over 20 U.S. chain retailers (such as Cost Plus World Market, Walgreens, Sprouts, Total Wines)  represented by over 40 distributors and available in over 32 states. This positive response is a true indicator that Drinks Americas has the right brand at the right time and momentum is building.

The Company is demonstrating full support to this strategic focus by retaining Beverage Industry marketing specialist Erin Heit.  Ms. Heit has been instrumental in the successful roll out of beverage brands including Glaceau Vitaminwater, FUZE and Celsius. "As soon as I saw Drinks Americas brand portfolio of authentic Mexican craft beers, with eye catching packaging, brilliant marketing and proven sales I recognized them as the leader of this movement and wanted to be involved," said  Erin Heit.

According to the Brewers Association craft beer in the U.S. is growing at 14% and furthermore according to the Global Agricultural Information Network, June 2013, Mexican craft beer is growing at 60%.

Drinks Americas mission is to identify and invest the majority of our brand-building resources on those with the greatest growth potential such as Day of the Dead™.
