An In-Depth Discussion on the Most Important Categories in Alcohol

A panel discussion about ready-to-drink cocktails (RTDs), flavored malt beverages (FMBs), and the things you need to know for covering the beverage alcohol industry in 2021. If you’ve not paid close attention to smoothie-influenced seltzers, hard teas, alcoholic coffees, or canned cocktails, this is a must-see. These are categories changing just about everything in beverage alcohol and shouldn’t be ignored in your reporting and understanding of what’s next.
