Oakland brewery expanding distribution and opening second taproom


112% revenue growth from 2016 - 2017. 2018 growth should hit 40% over 2017.
Breakeven projected by mid- 2019; projected profitability by end of year.
On track to produce 1,500 barrels in 2019. 175 active accounts in the Bay Area.
One of two proposed sites of new Oakland A's stadium (attracting 25k-40k people a game) is less than 1 mile from the tasting room.
Brewed 30 distinct beers, with 4 core beers.
Consistently well-reviewed across Yelp, Google and Untappd.
Future locations can have a strong food element with the help of Co-founder and chef, Matt Hunter.
We’ve done the heavy lifting of starting the business, establishing a market, honing production and an accepted product line, and opening a tasting room. We are a functioning business, not a high-risk start-up with no history.
