Truly founder Casey O’Neill will chat with VinePair Staff Writer and seltzer enthusiast Tim McKirdy about why she decided to create Truly, the reasons she thinks Hard Seltzer has exploded across America, with no signs of slowing down anytime soon, and lead attendees on a tasting of her favorite flavors.
