A Sacramento-based drink company has announced some big news.
Burly Beverages, which specializes in natural soda syrups and shrubs that are used in cocktails at area bars and restaurants, recently signed its first agreement with a distributor, Fair Oaks-based Pacific Edge Wine & Spirits.
On Monday, Burly posted on social media to detail why the business will have a very busy January despite its tasting room being closed.

“Here’s where it gets exciting,” the Instagram post reads. “We knew that Pacific Edge worked with clients like BevMo, Total Wine, Whole Foods, Nugget & Raley’s...so we expected a decent first order...but, we’ve been working on Raley’s for about 6 months now and they decided to place their first order with Pacific Edge right on top of our first production run...which is at once incredibly exciting and kind of harrowing! They increased our first order by FIVE TIMES.”
The post continues that because of the big order, Burly will not participate in its monthly Meatless Monday event held at Old Ironsides and its postponing the Burly Backyard BBQ until next month.
