DBR Staff Writer Published 15 June 2016

US-based WG Brewing Company has double the size of its portfolio with the addition of two more hard sodas.

Wild Docta' and Wild Sit Russ alcoholic sodas join existing hard sodas Wild Ginger Alcoholic Beer and Wild Root Alcoholic Root Beer.

Both brands share WG Brewing's label style, continuing the company's expansion into new markets.

The company said Wild Docta' taps a nostalgic vein with its grown-up nod to Rock & Rye soda, while Wild Sit Russ takes America's passion for lemon lime (citrus) soda and adds alcohol to make an alcoholic citrus soda.

WG Brewing Founder Jamey Grosser said: "We've been thrilled by the response to our small batch Tennessee products, and these two new flavors are ideal additions to our portfolio as we hit the summer months and expand into South Carolina, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Maine."

Grosser noted that the formula for citrus soda was initially developed in Tennessee in 1940, and today that brand remains the market leader in the citrus category.

The company's products are available in 12-ounce cans, with a suggested retail price of about $9.99.

WG Brewing products are available in Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, and several other US states.

The company's products have been picked up by Publix Super Markets, which will carry the brands in stores across the south.
