Happy last days of summer everyone!

As we’re passing through these last few days of summer sunshine, we wanted to take a minute to highlight the beverages that have gotten us through the summer and into fall. Most are must-haves in almost all offices we service, especially during the summertime.


Our keg program is optimal for office’s that are looking to offer premium options at a lower price point than individual servings. They are also a great option for those that have an environmentally conscious initiative in place in their offices. Our top options on top are:

  • Brew Dr. Kombucha
  • Verve Cold Brew
  • Black Medicine Cold Brew
  • Coming Soon – Stumptown Cold Brew

Best Kegs Brew Dr. Kombucha, Verve, Black Medicine and Stumptown

La Croix

This brand alone has nearly taken the city by storm over the past few years. We’re pretty positive that nearly 99.9% of all offices in the city have this product in their kitchens. They also just released a new flavor, Hibiscus, that we predict might start to rival the infamous “pampelmousse” (grapefruit) for top flavor!

La Croix Hibiscus

We offer the Maca Mocha elixir from Rebbl. The maca mocha is the perfect caffeine-free afternoon indulgence. This healthy treat beverage is created with coconut milk, dark cocoa, chicory and maca root.


We are proud to offer Alodrink options. These refreshing beverages are a great way to start or end the week to give your body a healthy boost through the benefits that aid with clear skin, digestion, hydration, and liver function.

  • Crisp: Aloe Vera, Fuji Apple, Pear
  • Comfort: Aloe Vera, Watermelon, Peach

Ito En

We are now carrying a new and exciting line from Ito En. To keep up with the ever-growing milk tea craze, Ito En has released both green and black milk tea options. They are shelf stable, and delectable! The perfect fix for when your needing a satisfying boost of caffeine.

Ugly Juice – Good Use

Due to popular demand, we have added a line of Good Use cold pressed 100% juice to our lineup. This brand is focused on reducing food waste by sourcing the surplus produce that otherwise would have been wasted.

  • If Looks Could Kale
  • One in a Melon
  • Turnup the Beet

Good Use Fresh Pressed Juices

I hope you’re making the best of these last summer days and find yourself with one of the above cold beverages in hand soon!

Happy Snacking!
