“Connecting with our drinkers and inspiring boldness is what Truly is all about,” said Lesya Lysyj, CMO of Boston Beer Company, which owns Truly. “There tends to be a stigma associated with Valentine’s Day for long-term couples only, so we’re excited to give our drinkers this opportunity to get outside their comfort zones and use the holiday as a chance for something new. Whether they find true love, a new best friend or end up with a great story, we just hope they have a great Valentine’s Day.”
