Boston Beer Company Introduces a Refreshing New Take on Finland’s Best Kept Secret, “Lonkero,” with All-New Bevy Long Drink

The Long Drink was first created when the Finnish government commissioned a refreshing cocktail to serve guests attending the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki.

While inspired by the traditional cocktail, Bevy Long Drink will be the first Long Drink inspired beverage available in the U.S. without spirits. Bevy Long Drink is made with an original malt base containing natural flavors and wild juniper berries and is currently available in two styles, Hard Citrus Refresher and Hard Berry Refresher.

Bevy's new hard citrus refresher is made from a delicious and easy-drinking blend of citrus flavors and wild juniper berries for an exceptionally thirst-quenching beverage that's perfect for any occasion. Bevy Long Drink is slightly sweet, tart, refreshing, and packed with flavor, all at 5.8% ABV.

Boston Beer, maker of other industry leading alcohol beverages Samuel Adams beer, Twisted Tea, Truly Hard Seltzer, Angry Orchard, and Dogfish Head beer plans to continue its proven track record of innovation to bring Finland's best kept secret to US drinkers.
