Our shooter-editor Ben Harrison loves making artisinal cocktail bitters, and has started his own bitter brand, Hella Bitter. The bitters are great - I don’t drink, but a dash of the citrus variety is wonderful in a Dr Pepper, and of course bitters and soda are a standby. Ben’s got a kickstarter campaign running to raise enough money to build a bitters and soda cart, in fact. If you want to try his great bitters and support a great project, give some money to his kickstarter now. There’s barely 24 hours left, and he’s spectacularly close to his goal.

Hella Bitter: THE RETURN

Our editor Benjamin Harrison has a second career as a slinger of artisinal cocktail bitters. His great product is called Hella Bitter, named in honor of a favorite colloquialism in his (and my) homeland, the Yay.

When we last wrote about Ben’s project, he was working on his first funding round - making and selling three flavors of bitters. It was a resounding success, and he’s now working on a new project: building a bitters & soda cart to push around Brooklyn.

Their funding goal is modest, and every level comes with free bitters, so get on that, men!
