Created in 2020 – our founder was looking for a healthier alternative to the “normal” lifestyle. With health issues arising, so he decided to cut out the alcohol from his life in search of a healthier normal. Cutting out the alcohol was easy – but the social aspect of enjoying a beer after a round of golf, a glass of wine after a long day, or a crafted cocktail to end the week – wasn’t as easy to give up.
The challenge faced, was locating these beverages in a grocery store wasn’t exactly the easiest, and finding that craft beer in the local liquor store usually was a cumbersome process with minimal selection. The vision was to have access to a large selection in one central area – with input and advice from others who are also enjoying and embracing this way of life brought right to your front door – the vision is SoberDry.
Everyone has their own reason for not wanting alcohol - and whatever that reason is - we want to give you an outlet at Soberdry to embrace and enjoy!
In our first week of our online auction we were able to raise $1,810!!
We couldn't have done it without y'all!!
