American Beverage Corp 

April 13, 2021

American Beverage Corp. 1 Daily Way, Verona, Pa 15147 This is an industrial bottling company but it does have a license (G-566) to manufacture malt beverages. They produce Daily’s Cocktail Mixes, which contain alcohol. Their website says the premixed cocktails have alcohol as wine is mixed with the drink. This would require a winery license so I do not know if the wine fact is correct. It may be if the alcohol content is low enough. Having a low ABV would permit the drinks to be sold in a beer distributor.   Normally I would not have included American Beverage in this work but they do have a manufacturing license. Other companies do as well such as hospital and scientific labs but American Beverage is the only license in Allegheny that has a license for a consumer drink.

1960 Founding of the company
Founded as Daily Orange Juice Company, Inc. in 1960, American Beverage Corporation (ABC) began as a small company that manufactured and delivered orange juice products door-to-door in the Pittsburgh suburb of Verona, PA. As other juice flavors were added, the company name was changed to Daily Juice Products. Today, ABC is a diversified beverage company that is part of the Dutch food group, Royal Wessanen of Amstelveen, Netherlands.
