Stocks in this article: DKAM

LOS ANGELES, March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Drinks Americas (OTC: DKAM; "Drinks Americas" or the "Company"), the exclusive United States broker for leading premium authentic Mexican beers currently present in over 34 states, today is proud to announce that the Company's Mexican Day of Dead Craft Beer is being offered at American Chef and Television Personality Ralph Pagano's sizzling South Florida restaurants - Alba Seaside Italian in Sunny Isles Beach and the new Naked Taco in Miami Beach.

Drinks Americas Holdings (OTN: DKAM) a leading U.S. broker for authentic Mexican beer proves to be right on trend with Day of the Dead Craft Beer. Just seven 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 CostPlus World Market, Walgreens, Sprouts, Total Wines, represented by over 40 distributors and in popular restaurant chains making Day of the Dead Craft Beer...

Pagano has appeared on the first season of Hell's Kitchen, hosted the series Pressure Cook on MOJO HD, even challenged seasoned Chef Bobby Flay on the American version of Iron Chef and now runs his own company YES Hospitality. As Owner and Chef at Alba Seaside Italian nestled inside the luxury, boutique Sole Resort in Sunny Isles Beach since 2012, he has been strong supporter of the Company's Mexican Day of the Dead Craft Beer, offering them up to hotel guests and restaurant patrons alike.

His newest creation, Mexican Cocina Naked Taco in South Beach's luxurious Dream Hotel was born out of his love for Mexico. In an interview on the opening of Naked Taco, Pagano spoke about his passion for the country, and opening a place where he can create tricked out versions of its street food while keeping the spot fun and affordable. Naked Taco opened its doors February 21, 2014 during South Beach Wine & Food Fest offering 125 different tequilas, and Mexican food that he lovingly described as "melty, gooey, cheesy, and crunchy." 

Pagano commented, "As an avid enthusiast of authentic Mexican food, drink and culture, I wanted to create an 'experience' with Naked Taco that brought customers to Mexico. I personally like Day of the Dead Craft Beer so including it in that experience was an easy choice, and a smart one. Day of the Dead is relatively unknown craft beer and the intrigue of that coupled with its Mexican heritage makes it one of our more popular beer items on the menu."

Joseph Belli, VP of Sales, Day of the Dead Craft Beer, commented, "To have Day of the Dead varietals on the menu of master Chef Ralph Pagano's restaurants is extremely exciting for the brand.  Out of the 13 beers on Naked Taco's menu, Day of the Dead I.P.A. and Day of the Dead Hefeweizen are the only beers that are brewed in Mexico by an independent family-owned Mexican brewery and are truly authentic Mexican varieties."

Timothy Owens, CEO of Drinks Americas, added, "We are pleased to see Ralph's support and  appreciation for the the authenticity, quality, taste and detail that goes into brewing and packaging our unique Mexican beer, and are eager to see how it does among their hotel guests and SoBe's eclectic international crowd."
