Try New Drinks At No Cost With BevBucks!
How many different brands of vodka, whisky, beer, etc… are out there? Not hundreds, but thousands! BevBucks markets for alcohol brands in a way that helps bars and restaurants too. Rather than being introduced to a shot of some new vodka brand on a random Friday night (not a bad thing), BevBucks invites you to try a specific beer, wine or liquor brand at their cost. Tell BevBucks what types of alcohol you prefer and receive relevant invites and influence top brands.
Current options we like at BevBucks include their offer to buy a Moretti at Grand Central Oyster Bar. Or sign up to get a bottle of Singha at your choice of 10 locations in NYC including The Grand Victory in Williamsburg.
