Fruit Cart Hard Seltzer
This hard seltzer comes from LA-based Golden Road Brewing, and it’s inspired by the brewery’s popular Fruit Cart beer. The seltzer makes its national debut in August with flavors like Mango, Strawberry Pineapple and Watermelon. Golden Road actually starts making this seltzer by brewing a light beer!
