LOS ANGELES, Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Drinks Americas (OTN: DKAM) hits a
grand slam with Day of the Dead Craft Beer. Drinks Americas Holdings is a
leading U.S. broker for authentic Mexican beer. All the beers are brewed in
Mexico's third largest brewery, Cerveceria Mexicana, which is proudly Mexican

Drinks Americas mission is to identify and invest the majority of their
brand-building resources on those with the greatest growth potential such as
Day of the Dead craft beer.
Drinks Americas is experiencing monumental milestones such as hitting 17,000
cases shipped in October only which is just five months after Day of Dead
Craft Beer was introduced to the U.S. and is continuing to expand rapidly with
this winning brand.
The new one of its kind beer brand is currently available in over 32 states
and being carried by over 40 Distributors. These results are extremely
encouraging for Drinks Americas. The U.S. market is being supported with 11
sales people and a team of brand consultants who conduct regular tastings and
events across the country.
"Day of the Dead craft beer is the leader of Mexican craft beer. We are in
position to own this category and then follow suite with other craft beers.
Within my many years in the alcohol brand building business I have never seen
such huge and fast response from the industry and consumers," said Joe Belli,
National Brand Manager for Day of the Dead Craft Beer.
Mr. Belli previously owned and operated IAO Management, LLC consulting and
building national and local alcohol beverage brands. Joe then spent years as
CEO for Prestige Imports, LLC., where he built a national network of
distributors and sales staff for several alcohol brands.
Drinks Americas was proactive to assess the beer and spirits market and react
positively to the market demand for craft beer with Day of the Dead, an
authentic Mexican brew. Craft beer is projected to represent nearly 15% of the
Beer Industry by 2020 and Craft's growth is driven by current beer drinkers
drinking more Craft as well as consumers of other beverage alcohol trading
into craft. (Source: Beer Marketer's Insights, Brewers Association, Nielsen
