Dr. Pepper takes stake in BodyArmor, sports drink backed by athletes. This is a big deal in battle vs. Pepsi and Coca-Cola who dominate with Gatorade and Powerade. $KO $PEP $DPS http://seekingalpha.com/article/3437976-dr-pepper-snapple-group-adding-bodyarmor-stake-a-smart-move-for-shifting-beverage-market

Here's a cool article we did on our trip to the Two Hearted River. Enjoyed some namesake beer while we were there. Great spot with amazing views and peaceful atmosphere you can't beat. http://travelthemitten.com/landmarks/a-trip-to-michigans-two-hearted-river-with-bells-two-hearted-ale/

I shared a photo awhile back of the Bell's Two Hearted can at the mouth of the Two Hearted River. Here's the story that goes with that trip. Pretty cool trip for a beer fan to get the experience and makes for some great photos too of course. http://travelthemitten.com/landmarks/a-trip-to-michigans-two-hearted-river-with-bells-two-hearted-ale/
