December 14, 2021

•Baltimore, Maryland-based DuClaw Brewing Company is releasing an escape from deepening fall chill with its latest. Its new beer is called Cloud Mango and features tropical flavors to put consumers in mind of balmier climes that include mango and coconut, along with subtler strains of vanilla and oak. At 7.1% abv, its label also features a QR code that, when scanned, directs to a Spotify playlist of beach tunes. Cloud Mango is billed as a sour and is available now on draft and in 12-ounce cans at select locations. DuClaw currently distributes to 24 states in the eastern half of the U.S.

•Yobo Soju is launching a new line of soju RTDs. The canned cocktails will be sold under the Hunni Sparkling Soju name and will initially come in four flavors: Yuzu and Elderflower; Korean Pear, Perilla Leaf, and Lime; Peach and Chili Pepper; and Grape and Ginger. All are at 4% abv and contain approximately 100 calories a can. Accompanying the cans is Hunni K. Town, 16% abv versions of the same flavors in 750-ml. bottles meant for sipping or cocktail mixing. The RTDs are launching nationwide this month for $17 a 4-pack while the K. Town bottles launch early next year. Founded in 2015, Yobo Soju is produced in New York’s Finger Lakes region from Catawba grapes.
