Holiday Brew was a Mountain Dew flavor variant that was officially released in stores on November 6th, 2017. It was first leaked on August 2017 by the YouTube channel myCountyMarket. Another YouTuber by the name of Avery Heaney TV and his friends had found Holiday Brew early in his video. A day later, Avery posted a review of Holiday Brew. It was later discontinued at the end of the holiday season in 2017.
Holiday Brew was first seen in a YouTube video that myCountyMarket posted on July 28th, 2017 as seen in the background on one of the shelves on one of their product reviews. A few weeks later, myCountyMarket posted a review alongside Pepsi Salted Caramel. They were concerned about the flavor, revealing that it was going to be released around November 2017.
It was later officially released from November 6th, 2017, and it remained on shelves until December 31st, 2017, where it was officially discontinued at the end of the holidays in 2017.
This flavor was replaced by Merry Mash-Up, as the next holiday season release flavor for 2018.
