8 Best Hard Seltzers to Get the Party Started

8 Best Hard Seltzers to Get the Party Started

Don’t worry beer guys, they’re just as manly.

Hard seltzers are having a moment right now. When they came onto the scene a few years back, 2015 to be exact, we were skeptical. Hard water? Hard sparkling water? And now that pretty much everyone is doing it, we must admit, they really are all the rage. The reason we love them isn’t just ‘cause they taste refreshing and more often than not have real ingredients, but you can toss ‘em back without the bloat that beer leaves behind. Most of them have 0g of sugar, and because it is water, it’s just easier to drink. And let’s admit it, guys, we all love some fruity drinks every now and then—there’s nothing wrong with sipping a tasty drink instead of wincing at an IPA. Let’s get the party started this summer with some refreshing, hard seltzers. Please note, these are not in chronological order. We love ‘em all equally for different reasons. So go ahead and try ‘em all.

1. Topo Chico Hard Seltzer

One might argue that Topo Chico is the GOAT of sparkling water, so it only makes sense they came out with a spiked version. This stuff is new on the market and already making a splash. If you’re a fan of their original, sparkling mineral water, this is for you, my friend. It comes in flavors like Tangy Mango, Lemon Lime, Exotic Pineapple, and Strawberry Guava. Damn. Plus, they’re all only 100 calories with 2g of sugar. Do yourself a favor this summer and nab a pack. Find it at or


2. Cacti Hard Seltzer

If you’re into being the guy at the party with the most exclusive releases, this is for you. Cacti is rapper, Travis Scott’s, creation and is made with 100% pure agave from Mexico. The packaging is cool, the hype is real, and the exclusivity is enough to make anyone curious. It comes in three mouth-watering flavors: Strawberry, Pineapple, and Lime, all made from natural fruit. Hurry and get a pack before it sells out again, like we said, the hype is real. Find it on


3. Truly Hard Seltzer

There really is no replacing a classic. We like to think of Truly as the ultimate summer seltzer brand. It comes in delicious classic berries and tropical flavors to fit anyone’s palate, even your pickiest friend. Plus, they’re literally the easiest thing to drink with only 1g of sugar and 100 calories. Even if it’s not summer yet, tossing one of these back will transport you to a boat on the lake with all your buddies. Not to mention, it’s perfect to sneak in your golf bag on a sunny day.

4. Two Robbers Hard Seltzer

Alright, the packaging itself is enough to get us hooked. This brand out of Philly has an entirely different look from other seltzers on the market. They call themselves “independent craft brewers” and we agree. The flavors are unique, it’s all gluten-free, with 0 g of sugar, and made with natural ingredients—nothing from concentrate, ever. They’ve got Peach Berry, Watermelon Cucumber, and Pineapple Ginger. If you’re the type who shows up to parties with the most underrated but delicious, indie drinks, this one is for you. It also helps that they just look badass. You can find it on their website at


5. Tolago Hard Seltzer

This is one of those brands that just makes you feel cool when you drink it. They have merch we would *actually* wear and their social presence makes you feel like you’re in a 90’s skate video. What’s not to love? The brand was created by a group of artists, musicians, and athletes who just wanted to make a gluten-free, all-natural, ethically sourced seltzer with 100 calories per pop. Plus the flavors are unique, which is a huge selling point. They have Agave Lime, Guava Mango, Ginger Pear, and Cherry Rose. Find their seltzers along with some badass merch like hats and shirts at


6. Vizzy

Ahh, we love this one ‘cause it helps us feel somewhat healthy while boozing it up. It’s the only hard seltzer out there made with vitamin C and antioxidants so, technically, you’re getting your vitamins and minerals while getting a buzz. This “healthy” seltzer comes in simple, bright flavors like Black Cherry Lime, Pineapple Mango, Blueberry Pomegranate, and Strawberry Kiwi. Not only does it have antioxidants and vitamins, but it’s also only 100 calories per can. Even more reason to treat yourself with a variety pack and head out to the greens for the day. Your friends will thank you, too.


7. Bud Light

So, the World’s Favorite Light Beer came out with a hard seltzer? We were a tad skeptical, since, ya know, beer is their wheelhouse. But we loved it for the flavor. Something about it was just so bold. The flavors are the classics like Cherry, Lime, Mango, and Strawberry. They even have a limited edition bunch with Margarita, Mai Tai, and Watermelon Mojito. Mouthwateringly delicious flavors, plus made with less than a gram of sugar and filtered 5 times for the purest taste and refreshing feel. We might recommend this is perfect for a day at the pool, or the beach since it has such a variety of flavors to last ya all day. Find this at


8. Kona Brewing Co. Island Seltzers

Need a trip to Hawaii? Close your eyes and take a sip. The local beer co known as “local aloha” has taken a stab at the hard seltzer game and has not missed. With 0g of sugar and only 100 calories, this tastes like a frozen drink in a pineapple. The flavors are a vacation in your mouth with Tropical Punch, Starfruit Lime, Strawberry Guava, and of course, the classic, POG or Passionfruit Orange Guava. Give these a whirl and get on island time. Find them at
