Featured Events

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.

Yarleen is a lovable Leo and a proud Jersey girl with Cuban roots. She’s an actor and freelance writer with an affinity for poetry, astrology, and fried plantains. Born in Jersey City and raised in West New York, where she currently resides, this Hudson county native can usually be found with an Americano in hand, or any caffeinated beverage really. A St. Peter’s University alum with a degree in Communication and Media Culture, Yarleen was News Editor of her college newspaper, while also reporting for the Hudson Reporter and The Jersey Journal. When she’s not on stage, enjoying a new hobby {currently rollerblading}, or typing away at her laptop, you can catch her running along the waterfront listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers or exploring NYC galleries.
