Whether we want to admit it, or not, summer is almost officially over. That means many things, but mostly the onset of cooler days, busier work weeks and the encroaching holiday season. For our small but mighty team here at brüks bars, we are ready to rock-’n-roll this season, and beyond.
Over the summer, we added a few new awesome retail partners including: Not Just Coffee (7th Street Market & Atherton Market), Dilworth Espresso, Dilworth, Laurel Market, Sprout healthy vending machines and starting next week the U.S. National Whitewater Center! Thank you to all of our amazing retail partners who have been working with us for part or all of this year.
This summer, we also heard back from the infamous Shark Tank producers. As some of you remember, earlier this summer we drove through a torrential Midwest style storm to make it to Columbus, Ohio in order to try out for everyone’s favorite reality show (a.k.a., entrepreneur roast). Well folks, we have good news and bad. The GOOD NEWS is that, we made it to the second round!!! That’s right. After hours in the car, camping out overnight, and pitching to one of their producers we got “the call” less than two weeks later. While technically we’re not allowed to tell you that, the BAD NEWS is that, we didn’t make the final cut. Alas, we had quite the experience and loved every minute of it. Plus, there’s always next season!
In other news: we are working on another flavor! While we still can’t reveal the final flavor combination, let’s just say it goes perfectly with cool weather and comfort cravings, but as always it will be gluten, dairy, soy and egg-free. This one will also be 100% vegan!
We’re here, we’re there, we’re everywhere (or at least we try to be!). Coming out to events and samplings is our favorite thing to do, outside of baking our tasty snacks, so come on out and say ‘Hi’ at one of our upcoming events (Also, check Facebook for last minute samplings in your area):
