Glass Packaging Institute Shows Support for Drinks Americas' (OTC: DKAM) Distinctively Designed Bottles

Mexican Day of the Dead Craft Beer Featured in Its Recent Newsletter & Encouraged to Submit an Entry to Its 2014 Clear Choice Awards Given to Products That Triumph in Glass Packaging Design

LOS ANGELES, March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Drinks Americas (OTC: DKAM; "Drinks Americas" or the "Company"), the exclusive United States broker for leading premium authentic Mexican beers currently present in over 34 states, today is proud to announce that the Glass Packaging Institute (GPI) has shown solid support of the Company's distinctively designed authentically Mexican Day of the Dead Craft Beer bottles. Not only has GPI featured its unique bottles in its newsletter "In the Aisles: New Products in Glass" but it has also encouraged the Company to submit an entry for its 2014 Clear Choice Awards honoring consumer product goods (CPG) manufacturers who expand the frontiers of glass packaging design.

Drinks Americas Holdings (OTN: DKAM) a leading U.S. broker for authentic Mexican beer proves to be right on trend with Day of the Dead Craft Beer. Just seven months ago DKAM decided to focus resources on the growing category of specialty craft beer and within that short period of time they are now available in over 20 U.S. chain retailers such as CostPlus World Market, Walgreens, Sprouts, Total Wines, represented by over 40 distributors and in popular restaurant chains making Day of the Dead Craft Beer available in over 32 states. This positive and fast response is a trueindicator they are the right brand at the right time and momentum is gaining for Drinks Americas (OTN: DKAM).

Founded in 1919 as the Glass Container Association of America, GPI is the trade association representing the North American glass container industry. On behalf of glass container manufacturers, GPI promotes glass as the optimal packaging choice, advances environmental and recycling policies, advocates industry standards, and educates packaging professionals. GPI's bimonthly newsletter "In the Aisles: New Products in Glass" takes a regular look into the latest innovations and new products packaged in glass containers, showcasing the work of glass manufacturers, suppliers, and brand owners. In its recent issue, it highlighted the Company's move to bring the entire state of Georgia the first and only Mexican Craft Beer, Day of the Dead, through its distribution agreement with Prime Wine & Spirits of Georgia.

The support of the Company's Day of the Dead Craft Beer shown by GPI has bled into its Clear Choice Awards program where entries are vast and awards are slim - presented only to products that triumph in glass and CPG manufacturers who expand the frontiers of glass packaging design by using glass containers in innovative ways. Day of the Dead Craft Beer has been encouraged to participate in this awards program, the only awards program that recognizes the contribution glass packaging makes to the image and success of everyday products - from sparkling water to salsa, baby food to bottled fruit juices, beer to flavored rums, pasta sauce to pickles. Entries are judged on innovation, package design (including container label and closure), and consumer appeal.

Timothy Owens, Drinks Americas CEO, commented, "We would like to thank GPI for their strong support of our Mexican Day of the Dead Craft Beer bottles. We receive a lot of praise from customers, distributors, beer enthusiasts and bloggers alike on the authenticity and refreshing taste of our Mexican beer. It's a nice change of pace to be acknowledged for the extreme precision, thought and care that go into its design and glass bottling process. It gives us great pride to have our uniquely packaged authentic Mexican beer included in their newsletter and to be encouraged by their team to submit our beer for their Clear Choice Awards consideration. Hopefully, this year will be the year we win!"
