Ola Brew Co.
Did you know that a) More than half of the tropical fruit grown in Hawai'i falls to the ground and never makes it to market; b) U.S. demand for craft alcohols has doubled in the last 5 years, and c) Most beer and cider consumed in Hawai'i is imported? Our conclusion: it’s time Hawai'i County had its own brewery designed to turn the state's abundance of produce into revenue for local farmers. And as the experienced beverage entrepreneurs who started Hawaiian Ola, we are the best team for the job!
First to bring production scale, locally sourced, craft cider to Hawaii.
Raised over $2.5M for equipment, facility build out, and taproom.
Launched our 14,000 sq. foot beverage facility and taproom in December of 2017.
Launched our retail products in stores statewide in July, 2018, 7 months after we opened doors. We are now in over 250 retail locations throughout the state including Wholefoods, Costco, Safeway, CVS and many local chains and independent stores.
Our founding team signed 3-year work commitments, and each team member has a stake in the company, incentivizing them to take ownership and pride in everything they do.
Managed by seasoned beverage industry professionals.
Will open first satellite taproom on Oahu in the fall of 2019.
Raised $707,205 from 634 investors on Wefunder since May 2017.
