FILED IN:  Applications  > Beverage


Marcus Hewitt, Chief Creative Officer, Dragon Rouge, chose the mysterious Kraken Black Spiced Rum with its Jules Vernesque label. Rob Wallace, managing partner, Wallace Church, chose IBC Root Beer, with its classic brown, debossed primary botle. And Vyto Bendoraitis of Interact On Shelf surprised us with bottles of subtly-colored, cheery Joia Life - All Natural Sodas

Why the surprise? Watch and find out. This episode calls for a MUST-COMMENT ISSUE: Would you add color to Fresh ginger ginger ale by Bruce Cost? First, watch and find out why this is a must-comment. Then please do let us know your thoughts, in the comments below.



Beverage Roundtable is the show where the experts go shopping, then meet-up for a live video discussion of the packages they chose.

For each episode, package design experts — Guest Critics —choose a beverage package that illustrates a theme. Next, the group meets with show host Bob Sperber to discuss the pros and cons of each package, from format and graphics to business strategy.

Tune in! Then join in the conversation in the comments thread at the bottom of each episode's homepage. And: Keep drinking.
