NORTH PROVIDENCE EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | NOVEMBER 7-13, 2018 NORTH PROVIDENCE 13 Pawtucket artist creates Yacht Club's new labels NORTH PROVIDENCE – Yacht Club Bottling Works, the official soda and water company of Rhode Island, is rolling out new labels for all 33 flavors of seltzers and sodas the com- pany produces, including the new Rhody Red flavor, its first soda with caffeine. Mixed and bottled in North Providence for many years, the labels on Yacht Club's bottles have always included Rhode Island imagery, and now each flavor has its own unique identity, say owners. The labels were created by Pawtucket artist Mike Bryce. The seltzers, of which there are now eight available flavors with the latest addition of Grapefruit Seltzer, will have historic images on their labels, while the 25 soda labels will all show ocean scenes. The Grapefruit Seltzer has an image of College Hill with First Baptist Church and the Providence Art Club clearly visible, while the new Sparkling Water label shows a scene that many people will immediately recognize as the icon- ic WaterFire along the Canal Walk. Two sodas now shipping with new labels are Root Beer with a painting of a mermaid looking upon the light- house at Beavertail Point, and Blue Raspberry with Rose Island light- house and the Newport Pell Bridge in the background. The sodas will all have ocean scenes on their labels and the next to be released will be Cream Soda with an image of Block Island's Southeast Light. The selt- zers will continue the historic theme with the release of new Cherry Seltzer showing Blackstone Boulevard on its label. Bryce, a Pawtucket artist at Bryce Studio, said he felt this was a "great collaboration." Bryce has always liked to make art invoking nostalgic Rhode Island and said, "I've been a professional artist for over 30 years, have had the soda for years and (Yacht Club owner) John Sgambato approached me to make some new labels. They went over well and so it works out great for both of us." Bryce Studio can be found at facebook. com/Mikebryceart. Two of Yacht Club's newest fla- vored sodas, Orange Cream and Grapefruit already have the new style artwork with Plum Island and Colonial Wharf on their labels respectively. All these great flavors will be joined by Yacht Club's new- est creation, their very first caffein- ated soda, Rhody Red which will have artwork of the Misquamicut Festival on its label. Rhody Red may remind some of Dr. Pepper, but Yacht Club's uses no high fructose corn syrup. All of Yacht Club's sodas and seltzers will now be capped with "Official R.I. Soda" bottle caps as well. Rhody Red introduces caffeine to NP soda line THE NEW LABEL for Yacht Club Root Beer, featuring Beavertail Point, was cre- ated by Mike Bryce, of Pawtucket. Yacht Club Soda is located at 2239 Mineral Spring Ave. in North Providence.
