0


Napa, CA (PRWEB) April 02, 2015

Free Flow Wines, the pioneer of premium wine on tap, today announced two new innovations in the beverage market: sparkling wine and sake are now available on tap. The two new brands available in a keg include Eufloria sparkling wines from Banfi Vintners and the new Bushido Way of the Warrior sake. Bushido is a Junmai Genshu, or premium, undiluted sake produced by Vine Connections, a leading premium sake and wine importer, and Kizakura, an established Japanese brewery in Kyoto.

Eufloria sparkling wine and Bushido Way of the Warrior sake are perfect examples of how innovative the beverages on tap industry can be, said Free Flow Wines co-founder and CEO, Jordan Kivelstadt. Our kegs maintain the quality of every beverage we keg and we have worked closely with both brands to ensure that these exciting new products exceed all quality standards.

Banfi Vintners will roll out the Eufloria sparkling wine nationwide in April. Their winemaker Nicolas Quille says, I have been working closely with Free Flow Wines for almost two years to perfect sparkling wine in a keg and I am proud to say that we have more than accomplished our goal with Eufloria. This is a great opportunity for bars and restaurants whod like to sell sparkling wine by the glass as it solves the typical issue of waste due to bottles going flat.

Bushido Way of the Warrior will be available nationally Fall 2015 with an exclusive California launch this spring. The first location to serve this sake on tap will be Chubby Noodle in San Francisco.

With the success of wine on tap in the market, we see a big opportunity for authentic Japanese sake to enter this cutting-edge space, said Ed Lehrman, co-founder of Vine Connections. Sake on tap is an exciting new opportunity not just for Asian restaurants, but for accounts like gastro-pubs. It is unique and forward-thinking in addition to being cost-effective and environmentally-friendly.

More than 3,900 locations nationwide are now offering wine and other products on tap and that number is rapidly increasing. For more details on kegging wine, sparkling, sake, or other beverages contact Free Flow Wines at info(at)freeflowwines(dot)com or (415) 626-1215.

Crown Bees Launches Crowdfunding Campaign to Help Save the Bees

0


Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 18, 2015

Social networks arent just for people anymore. Today, March 18, Crown Bees is launching its solution-driven Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to build a network of native Bee Boosters who support and raise native bees that can later be shared with local farmers.

Since one out of every three bites of food we eat depends on bees, we need more native bees to help take the stress off of honey bees, says Dave Hunter, CEO of Crown Bees, a supplier of gentle, solitary bees such as mason bees and leafcutter bees as well as American-made bee houses and supplies.

Together, native bees and honey bees will pollinate more crops and protect our food supply, he explains.

Hunter challenges everyone to be part of the solution and support Crown Bees mission today by becoming a Bee Booster and donating to this grassroots campaign.

According to Hunter, everyone can be part of the solution. Everyone needs to help by either supporting the campaign or by raising native bees to pollinate crops. In turn, this lightens the workload of troubled honey bees and helps keep food on your table, says Hunter.

This is a mission we all have to believe in – and act on now, not later, he says.

Bee Boosters will connect on a new website called Bee With Me. The interactive community unites people across the country that care about the environment, want to help save bees, and are interested in learning how to raise native bees or already have a bee house in their backyard.

Native, solitary bees, such as mason bees, are easy to raise. Its easier than hanging and filling a birdfeeder. As an added benefit for homeowners and parents, these gentle bees rarely sting and increase the production of flowers and veggies in gardens.

Crown Bees is sweetening the pot for contributors. Everyone who joins the Indiegogo campaign at any level will become a Bee Booster with access to Bee with Me. Additionally, every contributor receives the new All about Native Bees e-book and a shout out on Crown Bees website.

From there, the incentives only get better. Supporters who donate $ 25 get to adopt a bee. Donors who contribute $ 500 or more can donate native bee houses to a community garden. Give $ 5,000 and Hunter will take you and a guest on a tour of Oregons Hood River Valley, visiting a working orchard and a local winery.

Crown Bees Indiegogo campaign launches today on National Agriculture Day. By participating in our crowdfunding campaign, youre taking a powerful step toward keeping our crops pollinated and producing the food we eat, continues Hunter.

Crown Bees is a leading provider of solitary and native bees along with bee-safe nesting products. Serving the retail and commercial markets since 2008, Crown Bees has focused on supplementing the challenged honey bee population. Its unique Bee Buyback program helps gardeners complete the bee harvesting circle in an easy and efficient way. Find out more at http://www.CrownBees.com.
