“I have never seen a startup in the craft space that has such an understanding of branding and brand architecture. Most small and even many of the large brewers don’t understand brand architecture.

The approach is not craft, it is to be a brand to get the price positioning right.”

Chairman of a Top 25 California Craft Brewery - Recently Acquired


“Absolutely love the branding though and the dual beer cider strategy.”

Irena Blind
TSG Consumer Partners Investors in Pabst, Sweet Water Brewing, Brew Dog and other great brands.

“Looking at the packaging for El Presidente, has a great aesthetic positioning that could make a real entry into this segment.”
Raul Garcia
M & A Molson Coors

“I would love to figure out how to get involved. I have been known to raise a mug or two of fermented hops and barley from time to time!”
Scott Dahnke
Global Co-CEO, L Catterton Partners Investors in Innis & Gunn Brewing and other great brands.

Note: Firms do not do pre-revenue investment in the U.S.

What our early investors say:

"After drilling into the concept and plan with TA and his team and helping in drafting the deal structure I decided to invest and even got my family to invest too. This is an outstanding team with substantial relevant operating experience and a differentiated plan for entering the craft beer/cider space. The craft beer/cider market continues to grow rapidly with plenty of opportunity remaining for new brands like MSB"

Alan, Investment Professional, NYC Private Equity Firm


"MSB has really stood out to me as a best in class opportunity. From a management team with deep, relevant experience to a comprehensive marketing and business plan, and a product that is already in high demand, this is as clos to can't miss as you can get. I can't wait to see this come on-line and let the numbers support what I'm confident will be the successful byproduct of a well-vetted strategy"
Dan, CFO of Global Bulk Raw Materials Trading & Logistics Company

TRADITIONAL CRAFT BEER APPROACH

1. Start as a micro with 300-2K BBLS production in 1st year.
2. In years 3 and 4, initiate a capital raise to expand and increase production to 3-5K BBLS a year.

MSB APPROACH:


1. Start at 60K BBLS to get TOP 50 Craft Brewer status in under 5 years.
2. By end of year 1, start of year 2, initiate Phase 2 to expand production to 100-150K BBLS.
