Sebring Gator Grog Soda Released by Avery’s Beverage for Sebring Soda Festival

Avery’s Beverages is pleased to announce a custom Sebring soda, made just for the Sebring Soda Festival, will be available for tasting and purchase exclusively at the Sebring Soda Festival on April 6. 

The soda, named Sebring Gator Grog, features orange, kiwi and blue raspberry flavors and is made by Avery’s Beverages, one of the oldest bottling companies in New England.  

Avery’s is home of the Totally Gross Sodas®, which are dedicated to the 10-year-old in all of us and inspired by the concoctions created by young soda makers in the company’s "Make Your Own Soda" program.  These new flavors look and sound gross – like Dog Drool, Fungal Fruit and Kitty Piddle - but are absolutely delicious.

“We are thrilled to create this new, custom soda exclusively for the Sebring Soda Festival,” said Avery’s Beverages General Manager Rob Metz, who will be in Sebring for the festival.  “Avery's is a family run business, and we welcome the opportunity to share our family’s products with families at the Sebring Soda Festival.”

About Avery’s Beverages

Sherman F. Avery began making soda in the red barn on Corbin Avenue in the summer of 1904.  Avery’s very quickly became known for its variety of flavors, especially the Cream, Birch Beer, Root Beer and Ginger Ale. Using a horse pulled wagon, Mr. Avery delivered soda to the homes and stores in and around New Britain, Connecticut, and it wasn't until 1914 that he purchased his first delivery truck. Our sodas are still handcrafted using methods and recipes from generations ago including real cane sugar, the finest quality ingredients. Each flavor is carefully made in small batches and is packaged only in glass bottles to preserve the wonderful old-fashioned flavorAvery's is one of the oldest soda bottling companies in New England and our soda is still made in the same red barn on Corbin Avenue.  Avery's continues to be a family run business that strives to provide the highest quality products and outstanding customer service.
