00:00 - Welcome to the Boozebuddy Update. For you Boozebuddies today I have - NA Beer Ranked, Spirited RTDs, & Drone Tequila Farms

00:15 - NA Beer Ranked, from worst to first. This isn’t an exhaustive list - but commonly available ones. Budweiser is at the bottom of this list, Heineken didn’t fare better, but Guinness made #6. Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier #5. Untitled Art #4, Partake Red #3 and Mikkeller in the #2 spot with Limbo Raspberry. At the #1 spot, Athletic Brewing Company’s Run Wild IPA. NA options continue to improve, and that’s good for any sober curious or non drinkers. Get the full list at the link.

01:10 - Spirited RTDs are coming from Topo Chico. Bonus, there are vodka and tequila versions of “Topo Chico Spirited”. As consumers have asked, the ready-to-drink cocktails use simple ingredients; real spirits, real juice, and filtered sparkling water for three variations - Tequila & Lime ranch water, Tequila & Grapefruit Paloma, and Vodka & Lemon Chilton. The launch will take place across 22 states and should start appearing the week of April 17th. More at the link

02:20 - Drone Farms are a reality. Not growing drones, the drones are growing agave. Tequila keeps growing and that means agave needs to grow, so farming needs to be more efficient while growing. The Drones work at night and early morning, with two-thirds less water is being used, and fewer tractors disturbing the plants, making more tequila. Link for more.
