AB InBev and Keurig have discontinued sales of their ‘Keurig for cocktails’ Home Bar machines.

The two beverage giants partnered up to create the Drinkworks in-home drink system in 2017, with the Home Bar a ‘first-of-its-kind’ system designed to prepare a variety of cocktails, brews and more using pods. The system uses chilling and carbonation systems to deliver drinks in under 60 seconds.

The joint venture is headquartered in Bedford, MA; and operates a Creation Center in Williston, VT.

Drinkworks will offer customers the opportunity to receive reimbursement for Home Bar machines, regardless or where or when the machine was bought. The company will continue selling pods and accessories until March or while supplies last.

“Today [Dec 1] we made the difficult decision to close Drinkworks, with sales of Drinkmaker machines ceasing immediately, and sales of cocktail pods ending March 31, 2022,"​ says a statement from Drinkworks CEO Nathaniel Davis.

"I want to thank our passionate community of Drinkworks consumers, employees and partners for their support over the past four years. Consumers that purchased Drinkmaker machines can visit https://www.DrinkworksRefundProgram.com to determine their eligibility for reimbursement.”
