A Melbourne, Australia-based brewery is creating some buzz around its invention of a hard seltzer dispenser based on growth from its Fizzer seltzers collection. Moon Dog Craft Brewery’s creation has been trialing so far at Moon Dog World and is patent-pending according to BrewsNews.

However, thanks to a major grant from Manufacturing Modernisation Fund, the hard seltzer dispenser is ready to roll out to a number of bars and venues. This innovation is another win for the hard seltzer segment, which is poised to have another impactful and fruitful summer. Hard seltzers are only going to get more popular and with inventions like the Fizzer hard seltzer dispenser, the beverage’s ubiquity is inevitable.

For Moon Dog Craft Brewery, riding that wave is going to be a smooth ride, as they look to install 1,000 systems in the next 12 months.

SONIC is now taking out the DIY work many of us have done when it comes to spiking our slushes. Be on the lookout, as many of the chain’s iconic flavors are getting turned into boozy hard seltzers.

These won’t be sold on the SONIC menu, but will be available at distributors and stores that will be announced in the future.

For those wondering, the eight flavors SONIC is making into hard seltzers are as follows: Ocean Water, Orange Pineapple, Mango Guava, Melon Medley, Cherry Limeade, Classic Lemonade, Lemon Berry, and Original Limeade.

While we don’t know exactly where these seltzers will drop yet, we can confirm that they will launch on May 1st. We’ll know more about where you can find them once they arrive.
