Truly is fine, and most of our competition sucks

It's hard seltzer's world this summer, we're just living in it.

Seemingly overnight, this bubbly alcoholic concoction has become a nationwide sensation, prompting a smattering of memes and a legion of unabashed "bro" fans. Though brands like White Claw and Truly established themselves as early favorites within the hard-seltzer canon, in the past two weeks three new products have joined the market: Natural Light Seltzer, Pabst Blue Ribbon Stronger Seltzer, and a Four Loko seltzer.

With an abundance of hard seltzer at our disposal, it can be difficult to sift through the noise. To help you navigate these strange new alcoholic waters, I put together a workplace taste-test of nine brands of hard seltzer available to the public.

Eight of us from Business Insider's retail, transportation, and careers teams took over a conference room this week to sample the ever-growing array of beverages. Across these nine brands, we sipped a collective 34 flavors, in variations ranging from lemon agave hibiscus to raspberry rosé. (Sadly, we were not able to get our hands on the just-announced PBR Stronger Seltzer in time for the test, and we all have to wait until the fourth quarter of 2019 for a taste of Four Loko's seltzer in all 14% of its alcohol-by-volume glory.)

Overall, we came to the unwavering conclusion that Claw really isthe law, and we unanimously despised Natural Light Hard Seltzer. Check out the rest of our thoughts:
