“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.”

Our team has worked in the beer category, specifically the craft space, since the 70s.
With more than a quarter century of experience in the beer category, specifically the craft space, our team’s passion for quality has consistently been on display. Leveraging our experience in the super premium, premium, premium light, sub-premium, malt liquor and flavored malt beverage categories, our brew crew has been involved in the development and introduction of both specialty and seasonal brews, including brewing, packaging, marketing and sales. Here are some of the great bands the MSB Team has been involved with:
TRADITIONAL CRAFT BEER APPROACH

The simple answers are you probably already like some of our team's beers they have been involved with. Ask your self if you like every beer that the top 50 craft brewers make, probably not! This is a business, and we will produce beers and ciders that consumers want to drink and come back for more VS the typical model of let's make this and try to figure out how to sell it.
Huge upside and paying attention to details. Compared to regular beer drinkers, the regular cider consumer is younger, earns a higher income and is more likely to be Hispanic. Cider drinkers are also more closely gender-balanced than beer drinkers, who skew male. [per CGA Strategy] Based on a web poll conducted by Boston Beer Company’s Angry Orchard cider brand, 37 percent of adults ages 25-49 are unable to name a cider brand. Of those who named a brand, 9.3 percent named Angry Orchard; 6.9 percent named Mike’s Hard Lemonade, which is a flavored malt beverage and not a cider; 6.1% named Redd’s Apple Ale, which is also not a cider. [per Angry Orchard] What does it mean? There’s a huge opportunity for cider to connect with drinkers who just don’t have that beverage on their radars.
Distributor Relationships can be complex: Experienced team eliminates learning curve for pricing, sales, marketing and manufacturing.
