OUSTON and MONROE, La., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Innovative Beverage Group Holdings, Inc. (Pink Sheets: IBGH) announced that its signature beverage, drank(TM) extreme relaxation(TM) is now being distributed throughout Northeastern Louisiana by longtime Anheuser-Busch((R)) partner, Marsala Beverage.



A full-service distributor and Anheuser-Busch((R)) wholesaler, Marsala brings Budweiser((R)) beers and a variety of additional beverages to 15 parishes in the Northeast area of Louisiana, offering drank(TM) valuable shelf space at a host of convenience stores, groceries and other retailers throughout the region.



“drank(TM) has essentially created a new beverage category of calming beverages and, as the market leader, it offers consumers a functional, non-alcoholic beverage with superior taste and calming properties,” said Damon Marsala, President of Marsala Beverage. “drank(TM) also comes with impressive national marketing support and dedicated customers providing the retailers we service with an additional revenue stream.”



“drank(TM) is wildly popular across many areas of the South, so working with a premier and well-respected Anheuser-Busch((R) ) distributor like Marsala with such strongholds in its markets ensures that we will be able to reliably get product to consumers throughout their coverage area,” said Peter Bianchi, CEO of Innovative Beverage Group. “This agreement will not only complement drank(TM)’s existing distributor agreements in other areas of the country, but it will also bring a new wave of relaxation to Northeastern Louisiana residents as we expand our reach in this key market.”



With a slogan of “slow your roll(TM),” drank(TM) is the antithesis of the herd of energy drinks crowding the functional beverage sector. Since launching in select markets in early 2008, drank(TM) has quickly become the go-to beverage for people looking to relax their mind and body with a calming blend of melatonin, rose hips and valerian root.
