Celebrate Fall!

September 22, 2011, Filed under: Uncategorized

Fall, which officially begins on September 23rd, is full of celebrations.  The first celebration of the season is the German celebration Oktoberfest, which began this year on September 17th, and runs through October 3rd.  Oktoberfest originated in 1810 as a celebration of the marriage of Bavarian Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildbrughausen.  With only a few exceptions due to war and famine, Oktoberfest has taken place every year since.  This year’s celebration opened with the official tapping of the first keg by Oberbürgermeister Christian Ude, the mayor of Munich.  After shouting, “O’zapft is!” (“it’s tapped!”), cannon shots ring out, signaling that the beer can officially start to flow.  Oktoberfest in Munich runs through Oct 3rd, and there are also many Octoberfest celebrations here in the USA.

We at Drinkin’ Mate think a perfect way to ring in the Fall season is to roll out a buy-one-get-one-free offer of Drinkin’ Mate, your Feel Better the Next Day helper.  Visit our website and be sure to be prepared for your next Fall Celebration!

Minnesota Based Manufacturer of Effervescent Tablets Reaches New Safety Milestone
Plymouth, MN, August 24, 2011- Amerilab Technologies, a leading producer and developer of effervescent tablets, is proud to celebrate 1,000 days of production without an OSHA recordable safety incident resulting in lost time from work. The celebration will take place at their facility on Wednesday, September 7, 2011.
This milestone, which now spans nearly 3 years, brings the Amerilab Technologies OSHA recordable incident rate down to less than 2.0, well below the industry standard of 4.5. This accomplishment was due in part to the rigorous safety training programs aided by employee involvement.

April 15, 2011, Filed under: Uncategorized
The Drinkin’ Mate team had a great time show-and-telling our brand at Swagapalooza this last Tuesday, April 12th.  The event took place at the DNA Bar in fabulous San Francisco.  It was an invitation-only event, with over 120 of the most-influential bloggers and tweeters from the San Francisco area in attendance.  They gathered to hear presenters from 11 companies hand-picked by the @Swagapalooza team to show their new and innovative products.  Some of our favorites included the “Invincible Jacket,” a tailored waterproof jacket for men by Saboteur, and Two Degrees nutrition bar company; for every nutrition bar consumers purchase, Two Degrees will donate a nutrition pack to a malnourished child. 

Two drink tickets were provided by Swagapalooza, along with a “swag-bag” to take home, which included product samples.  Drinkin’ Mate provided each blogger with a tube of the effervescent version of Drinkin’ Mate along with a sleeve of caplets.  Reviews are still to come, but so far there has been a positive response to our innovative brand.  Many bloggers have already reported via Twitter that they “Felt Better the Next Day” after taking Drinkin’ Mate at the event.  Stay tuned for re-posts of blogs mentioning our product!

Drinkin’ Mate® Feel Better the Next Day Launches Caplets

Wild Guava Leaf Extract now conveniently taken before bedtime

Plymouth, Minnesota, April 11, 2011 – Amerilab Technologies, Inc. continues to demonstrate innovation in the development and marketing of Drinkin’ Mate Feel Better the Next Day.  Introduced as an effervescent tablet in 2006, a new conveniently formulated caplet opportunity is now available for responsible consumers of alcohol.  Both the effervescent tablets and caplets are available via the brand’s website as a one-time buy or club membership

Made with Patented, All-Natural Wild Guava Leaf Extract, Drinkin’ Mate may defend against aches, fatigue, queasy stomach and dehydration associated with alcohol consumption.  Very simple to use, the two caplets are taken before going to sleep.  The 1000mg of our Wild Guava Leaf Extract may help you feel better while your body is under physical or emotional fatigue and when consuming alcohol.  The same amount of Wild Guava Leaf extract is also in the effervescent tablet, which needs to dissolve in 4oz of water before drinking (a great wild berry taste).

Either in caplets or tablet, Drinkin’ Mate may assist recovery, a good thing for anyone who has life’s responsibilities to tend to the next day.  Wild Guava Leaf Extract may also provide an immunity boost.  The antioxidant value in the extract may help your body’s ability to fight free radicals, fight cell destruction and restore balance.

As you can tell, the story is all about Wild Guava Leaf!  Naturally occurring, Wild Guava leaves are unique to the Guava plant species.  Our Wild Guava Leaf Extract is grown, hand harvested and naturally extracted without the use of solvents.  Over 5,000 Wild Guava trees are grown on our privately owned and secured farm.  Trees are irrigated with water from a 1,000ft drop well, free from herbicides and chemicals, allowing for the most naturally occurring form of Wild Guava Leaf Extract available.

The accelerated growth of Drinkin’ Mate online is supported by the brand’s website launch of the Drinkin’ Mate Club in 2010.  The loyal Drinkin’ Mate fan can now easily receive their product monthly or bi-monthly.  The goal, of course, is to never be without your Drinkin’ Mate.  An additional benefit to club membership is the advantage of buying Drinkin’ Mate at a reduced price – shipped free of charge!   The brands’ success with consumers is also highlighted on their facebook page, with 2,500 followers of the brand.

Drinkin’ Mate is made by the Twin Cities-based company, Amerilab Technologies Inc., the nation’s leader in the development, manufacturing and packaging of effervescent tablets.  Available at bars, liquor stores and at some retail, Drinkin’ Mate’s® strongest presence is online via e-commerce websites.  Drinkin’ Mate package options vary and can be found for purchase at
