Tennessee-based WG Brewing Co has added two more hard sodas to its portfolio. Wild Docta' and Wild Sit Russ join existing hard sodas Wild Ginger Alcoholic Beer and Wild Root Alcoholic Root Beer.

The company also outlined plans to expand into South Carolina, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Maine. 

Wild Docta' is a blend of vanilla, cherry and cola flavours, while Wild Sit Russ is a take on lemon-lime soda. 

"Hard soda or soda beers are hot right now because they are the ultimate white board when it comes to exploring the flavour potential of beer," said WG Brewing founder Jamey Grosser.  "Until recently, we let the spirit brands control the flavour dialogue, but the WG Brewing portfolio, and particularly the additions of Wild Docta' and Wild Sit Russ are giving beer lovers a breath of fresh air, while appealing to new consumers looking for sweet, but sessionable options."
