From hotels and restaurants to local clubs and backyards, bars of all shapes and sizes evoke feelings of comfort, fun, and camaraderie. While the location and aesthetic of the bar both play a large role in setting the vibe, the environment depends on a menu filled with the right beverages to please all crowds. Here, Banko Beverage Co., which distributes alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks throughout the Greater Lehigh Valley, breaks down the best beers for bars to offer, as well as other options for guests to enjoy.
Selections from FIFCO USA
Headquartered in Rochester, New York, FIFCO USA boasts an impressive brand portfolio that features popular labels and lesser-known options alike. Aside from unique products like Hemptails and Pura Still, Banko Beverage Co. distributes many crowd-pleasing brands, including:
The Genesee Brewing Company
Hailing from Rochester, New York, The Genesee Brewing Company was founded in 1878 and is highly regarded as an American tradition. As one of the biggest and longest continually operating breweries in the country, it produces an iconic line of Genesee beers, from Genesee Light to Genesee Ice, as well as seasonal gems like Oktoberfest.
With an alcohol by volume (ABV) of less than 4%, Seagram’s Escapes are always a crowd-pleaser at any time of the year. Carbonated and sweet, they’re great for the soda-loving crowd and come in a wide variety of flavors, including Jamaican Me Happy, Calypso Colada, Strawberry Daiquiri, Wild Berries, Bahama Mama, Orange Sassy Swirl, and many more.
Diverse Offerings from Pabst Blue Ribbon
Pabst Blue Ribbon, known as PBR, is a brand synonymous with relaxation and good times – the exact vibes you’d hope to find at any bar. It was established in 1844 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, focusing on perfecting its brewing practices for the world-famous beer it still produces today. However, PBR has evolved from solely a beer brand to a versatile beverage supplier that offers options for non-beer drinkers, such as:
- Hard Tea: For those who prefer something on the lighter side, PBR Hard Tea is bubbly with a subtle sweetness and just a 4% ABV.
- Stronger Seltzer: Available in lime and wild berry flavors, PBR Stronger Seltzer features an 8% ABV, low sugar content, and the crisp and refreshing properties of sparkling water.
- Hard Coffee: When frothy, milky vanilla meets the taste of fresh coffee and a 5% ABV, you have PBR Hard Coffee.
- Non-alcoholic beer: Ensuring there’s something for everyone, PBR created this option to mimic the great taste of its alcoholic beer.
