•Waitsfield, Vermont-based Lawson’s Finest Liquids has expanded distribution of its Hopzilla Double IPA outside its home state for the first time. It’s now on sale throughout Lawson’s nine-state footprint of Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. The beer is at 8.7% and was made with Cascade, Simcoe, and El Dorado hops. It will be in wide release through the end of February.

•Spirited Hive is a new line of canned cocktails launching next month. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, the company will debut with distribution in Nashville and New York City. The brand was founded by Jack Espy, a grad student at NYU who found himself designated as his social circle’s cocktail maker during the pandemic. The initial lineup will consist of three options: Bourbon infused with rosemary, lemon, and honey, with the Bourbon sourced from Green River Distilling Co. in Owensboro, Kentucky; Tequila infused with ginger, lime, and honey, with the Tequila sourced from Jalisco, Mexico; and vodka infused with cranberry, lime, and honey. Spirited Hive Cocktails retail for $17 a 4-pack and are available for pre-sale now from the company’s website.
