BEDFORD, Mass., June 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Drinkworks® — the beverage innovation company behind the Drinkworks Home Bar® by Keurig® that is reimagining cocktails at home — today announced the launch of its PRESS.

Acknowledging the past year of missed social and entertainment experiences, Drinkworks and Deep Eddy are hitting the road this summer to host block parties for four lucky winners, reigniting a love for live music, community and delicious cocktails.
The campaign is kicking off with an exclusive block party in Los Angeles featuring a private live performance by country music superstar Chris Lane. After more than a year without live shows, the chart-topper is ready to return to the big stage this summer and reconnect with his fans.
"The thing that I've missed the most this past year is being on the road and playing shows, but even more so seeing fans. I just can't wait to get back out there in early July," shared Lane. "There is nothing better than live music and good drinks with family and friends. So, I'm really excited to partner with Drinkworks and give fans the chance to bring everyone together for some good times and make new memories!"
Beginning today through August 1, 2021, consumers 21+ can enter the PRESS. PLAY. SWEEPSTAKES. for the chance to win a block party featuring a live performance by a local musician and a mobile bar serving Drinkworks' new Deep Eddy Day Drink Variety Pack cocktails — the perfect way to toast to the start of what is sure to be a memorable summer. To keep the good times going, Drinkworks will also help 50 additional winners across the country host block parties of their own by giving away Block Party Kits, which include a Drinkworks Home Bar and a Visa gift card.
"Drinkworks' mission is to elevate everyday experiences from the ordinary to the remarkable," said Drinkworks CEO, Nathaniel Davis. "After more than a year of missing out on experiences that make us feel most connected, we have the opportunity to facilitate new, truly special moments where consumers can leave behind the worry and time preparing cocktails, and focus on reconnecting and making lasting memories."
The PRESS. PLAY. SWEEPSTAKES. marks the official debut of Drinkworks' newest collaboration: the Deep Eddy Day Drink Variety Pack, a collection of four brand new Drinkworks Pods to enjoy at daytime (or anytime) gatherings all summer long. The Deep Eddy Day Drink Variety Pack includes the Ruby Red Sparkler, Lemon Splash, Cran Codder and Texas Tea, all made with premium, natural ingredients and featuring Deep Eddy's handcrafted, 10x distilled vodka.
"At Deep Eddy, bringing people together for a good time is part of our DNA, which is why we're excited to be a part of the PRESS. PLAY. block parties as consumers dive back into summer celebrations with friends," said Reid Hafer, Group Product Director, Deep Eddy Vodka. "We can't wait to bring Drinkworks fans a taste of Deep Eddy this summer with the new co-branded Day Drink cocktails, a simple, instant cocktail that stays true to our fresh flavor approach and passion for the Deep Eddy experience, whether you're by the pool, hanging in your backyard, or rocking out to live music."
