What Else You Can Drink Since There’s A White Claw Shortage
Hot Girl Summer must seriously be coming to an end because we're running out of the summer drink of choice: White Claw. It has been the summer of White Claw, and the brand has become a victim of its own success. The company’s senior vice-president told CNN they are trying to deal with the high demand for their fizzy alcoholic beverage:
"We are working around the clock to increase supply given the rapid growth in consumer demand. White Claw has accelerated faster than anyone could have predicted."
In July, White Claw sales were up 283% from the previous year with the sales of White Claw counting for 55% of all hard seltzer sales the same month. Now with the shortage of White Claws, many are wondering what else we can drink that will give us that same fizzy feeling. Check out some of these great hard seltzer beverages and see if you find one you enjoy more than the claw.
