Hoboken Girl Hard Seltzer Debuts Limited Edition Cranberry Lime with 902 Brewing Co.

2nd hg hard seltzer flavor

In October, the team at Hoboken Girl debuted our first limited edition hard seltzer flavor — Blood Orange — for the fall season in collaboration with 902 Brewing Co. Now, in mid-January, we’re very excited to announce the release of our second flavor, Cranberry Lime.

For the second flavor, Cranberry Lime, we wanted to fuse two popular flavors into one — with a twist on the beloved Raspberry Lime flavors. The end result is a sweet flavor that goes down smoothly and pairs well with liquor, or by itself over ice, of course. It was important for us to source the products locally, both for the creation and distribution processes.

See here for more info on the hard seltzer and where to purchase it locally.
