Clare Rose Kicks-Off Summer With Launch Of New “Drink Long Island” Website

Press Releases

Long Island beer, wine, and spirits distributor reinvents the wheel with new consumer website that allows Long Islanders the opportunity to find their favorite beverages ...

Yaphank, NY – May 16, 2013 – Clare Rose, a leading beer, wine, and spirits distributor based in Suffolk County, Long Island, today unveiled its new consumer website www.drinklongisland.com.  This new website offers Long Islanders the ability to find out where to go, what to do, and what to drink on Long Island (Long Island’s Guide To A Good Time.)  The Clare Rose Marketing team designed the website to help locals find out about exclusive events and specials in the area and bring extra value to their clients.  Clare Rose wanted to help increase their customers’ business by increasing brand awareness for the various beers and wines they distribute on Long Island.

“The arrival of the Drink Long Island website marks a milestone in the way consumers can research their favorite beverages and find out the latest happenings on Long Island,” states, Trish Lemery, Marketing Manager.  “We are happy to help bring our clients and consumers together”.  By having everything in one place, the consumer is granted instant access to information on not only the most popular brands of beer, supplied by Anheuser-Busch InBev and Heineken, but also niche craft beers that consumers may not recognize. With a craft portfolio including Blue Point Brewery, Great South Bay Brewery, Long Ireland Brewery and many more, locals can visit their favorite bars for free tastings, learn about new beverages, and find out about special events.   

In addition, Drink Long Island offers a large social media presence that posts real-time information, photos and video content about great events, giveaways, contests, and exclusive prizes.  As a special bonus Drink Long Island provides a giveaway each Tuesday as a fun way to engage with consumers and build its brand conversation. Long Islanders are encouraged to like Drink Long Island on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to keep up with the latest information and not miss out on any events this summer! We encourage our followers to drink reasonably this summer and take the pledge at www.nationofresponsibledrinkers.com.
