Reasons to Invest

Our beverages are healthier, using only real ingredients and harder, with an ABV at 6.5%, which is a lot higher than most seltzers on the market.
Sales of hard seltzer were expected to roughly double to $3.5 billion in 2020. Instead, they tripled to a whopping $4.5 billion! It is now estimated that seltzer revenue will reach $14.5 billion by 2026. We aim to create diversification in the market by creating a unique craft, hard seltzer using real fruits and ingredients. The market is pleading for a disruption and we are stampeding our way in.
Our socially responsible brand is focused on making our product locally and then giving back globally by donating a portion of our sales to conservation efforts around the world.

Our Story


Try something different


*All product images are of Elephant Craft Hard Seltzer's which are currently in development and not available on the market. 

After operating within the beer industry for 25 years, our team was at a crossroads.

 

We had the option to continue the expansion of our successful local brewery, or leverage our experience and industry knowledge to do something different and unique. We started looking at the hard seltzer space and noticed a startling trend… all the hard seltzers on the shelf were essentially the same product! They were all skinny, white cans with Black Cherry or Mango flavor profiles, at 5% or lower Alc/vol. No one was creating anything new or trying to explore what you could do with this beautiful beverage. Instead they were just hitting copy + paste in a feeble effort to steal some market share without any real effort. 

 

In 2019, we decided to change that. We began building a beverage that spoke to the core values we had seen in the early days of ‘craft’ beer. Our drinks have been built on a foundation of creativity, authenticity, and intention. We make true, craft hard seltzers using REAL ingredients, delicious and innovative flavors, a higher ABV, and then we use our platform to give back to supporting vulnerable animal species. With a mission to do good, make good, and be good in all that we do.


Our products are currently in development and we expect to launch our first SKUs in 2021. All products on the page will be our initial beverage line.

The Problem


Bland, canned flavors for new generations of libation-lovers who simply deserve better

Modern day consumers are smart -- they know and they expect the best of what they put in their bodies. They don’t just want to buy a 36 pack of a generic beer (or seltzer) because that’s what’s on the shelf in front of them. 

 

They want innovation and diversity through healthier, high-quality ingredients, transparency, a relatable company culture, a socially responsible brand -- all at an affordable price point. The beverages they drink are not just products, but have become a reflection of themselves and their values. The stuff on the shelves that’s full of chemicals and “natural” (really anything but) flavors just won’t cut it.

 

We’re here to serve up drinks that are bigger and better, just like the elephant!

The Solution


Real ingredients, real booze, real purpose

We’re as transparent as they come and we want our consumer to see authenticity bubbling through all we do. That starts by making seltzers that we want to drink and share while creating a company that can give back in both enjoyment and in action. That’s why we start with REAL ingredients. No junk in our trunks. No added sugar, no fake “natural flavors” (how does that phrase even make sense!?). Simply aiming for an industry-created calorie-count is not enough. We have crafted a true “better-for-you-beverage.”

In order to accomplish our objectives of diversification and true craft, it couldn’t just look good and pop visually on the shelf. We had to flip the script on what everyone else is doing. Most hard seltzers are low in ABV, but in the craft world a slightly higher ABV is what’s expected, so we went with a higher octane of 6.5%. Most seltzers taste like fake flavored sparkling water (emphasis on fake and water), so we’re focused on flavor - diversifying our flavor profiles with balanced and delicious mixes of real fruit, superfoods and herbs. Our brand screams BOLD ingenuity, our packaging has been designed to catch your eye, shout ‘masterfully crafted’ flavors, vibrant colors, and hand-etched calligraphy.

Our purpose is to do your body and our world good. That’s why we support wildlife conservation efforts. Our world is getting smaller and less diverse every day. As we grow, we will dedicate a portion of every case sold to protect the endangered species of our planet that have made our universe so much more interesting and beautiful.

The Market


A skyrocketing beverage market thirsty for drinks beyond the beer

The hard seltzer and craft beverage market thrives as consumers and investors find expanding value in quality beverages. In 2019, hard seltzer sales grew by 226.4%, while total beer sales grew by less than 1% (source). Sales of hard seltzer were expected to double to $3.5 billion in 2020 and reach $6.5 billion by 2024 (source), but now those numbers have multiplied to $4.5 billion in sales in 2020 and $14.5 billion by 2026. 

The hard seltzer market is not slowing down, taking over the beverage market from its competitors in beer. What the market does not have yet is a leader in innovation and quality. 

 

Elephant Craft is building the “true craft” segment within the hard seltzer category and paving the way as the household brand for quality, real fruit seltzers with the freshest flavors. 

Our Traction


Six enticing flavors and two sizable swimming pools worth of Seltzer

We crafted and developed 6 flavor offerings for a 2021 launch and identified our key production partner who is able to bring our vision to fruition.  

GIF

We’re seeing our vision grow already to popular grocery store chains. We’ve had preliminary meetings with most of the Southern CA retailers that have shown a tremendous amount of support for our beverages. So much so that we have developed relationships with not just one, but two Southern CA co-packers that can produce our products to spec. Currently, we have the capacity to produce, 40,000 barrels of liquid in just 2021 alone. That’s 550,000 cases of pure bliss!


We also have strategic partnerships in place to launch into one of the largest specialty stores nationwide AND DTC within CA and AZ starting day 1. We can’t mention names just yet, but the volume is set to be around 20,000 cases/month.


We project to be at a 22,000 bbl/year run rate by the end of 2021 and 95,000 bbl/year runway by the end of 2022. With production rates and partnerships quenched for progress, we are due to officially get into the market May 15th, 2021

What We Do


A hard seltzer created locally, driving globally positive impact

We make high-quality, ingredient-conscious, flavor forward, hard seltzers. 


With COVID-19 hitting this past year, we decided to get scrappy and take a less capital intensive approach in production. We’ve decreased our overheads and built new partnerships to enable the production of our beverages with two local (SoCal) craft breweries both of which already have all the vital equipment we need to make the highest quality beverages. This allows us to produce what we need, when we need it and scale appropriately as we grow. In addition, we get to support our craft brethren along the way. How cool is that?!

In building this business, we originally founded with the purpose of “Saving the Elephants.” We had a strong tie with a co-operation called Elephant Co-op, based out of Southern California, and we wanted to support their mission to protect the African elephant and its surrounding communities. Then we thought: “Wait, we can do more!”  Yes, we’re going to support charities like Elephant Co-Op, but we’re going to broaden our reach to endangered species as a whole. Our focus in the beverage world is to celebrate diversity in our drinks and focus on beautiful flavors…. It just makes sense that we also then seek to protect the diverse species of this amazing planet! We aim to donate 1% of all profit to conservation efforts across the planet.

 

Drink Elephant, save an elephant!

The Business Model


Get trunk, right at your doorstep

If there’s one thing 2020 has taught us, it’s that DTC (Direct-To-Consumer) has some serious legs and that the consumer has become increasingly familiar with delivery services such as Uber Eats, Drizly, GoPuff, etc. We’re going to invest heavily in our social platforms to educate our consumer base on how they can order directly from our website as well as through these services, to bring in our delicious drinks. In tangent, we’ll also be taking the more traditional route to market through a potential Southern CA distributor. 

 

Contactless delivery of food and drink has been expedited through the needs of quarantined consumers. We’re going to bring our craft drinks directly to our customers’ casas!

With consumers being more engaged than ever with brands through social media, peer recommendations and influencer suggestions, they are asking to be empowered by information when they are making their buying decisions. Social media helps us provide that information and our brand identity in ways we’ve never been able to do before. 


We have the opportunity to create powerful brand ambassadorship through experiential marketing (putting the brand beverage in the hands of consumers, letting them try it, and then share their experience through multiple different platforms, activating our PR prowess, and creating engaging social media and influencer campaigns. We are building a HERD. There are no hard seltzer brands that are focused on a ‘brand-forward’ approach. 

We want our Elephant family to identify with not just our dedication to unique high quality beverages and fun eye popping packaging, but to also be completely aligned with our core values of do good, be good, make good. We’re building community.


When marketing and delivering directly to the consumer, we’re also able to preserve a more aggressive profit margin that is usually given up to distributors and retailers!


Slated for 2022 and beyond, we want to explore the option of building out our “Watering Hole.” This would be an on premise “seltzer bar” that would allow us to try new flavors and showcase what we’re really trying to do with the hard seltzer beverage… which is - explore EVERYTHING that can be done with this magnificent base. If you’re doing it right, hard seltzers should have a completely neutral base. What better blank canvas to play with a host of different types of flavors. We will muddle the ingredients fresh, right in front of the customer, add molasses or sarsaparilla. Experiment with low ABV, high ABV, no ABV. 


We want to showcase the beverage to the extreme and become the pioneers of true craft seltzer. 

How We Are Different


The elephant in the room

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room, there’s no shortage of beverage brands throwing a random hard seltzer into their portfolio and trying to get it on the shelf. The challenge (AKA opportunity) with that is this… THEY’RE ALL THE SAME! They are likely sourcing the same base, and using the same “natural flavoring” as the can sitting next to them on the shelf. Heck, if you look at a lineup of any 10, commercial hard seltzer cans you’ll notice the trends: each using tall, white, skinny cans. Turn over the can and you’ll see that same haunting completely vague ingredient; “natural flavoring,” that could be broken down into a million different chemicals trying to trick your taste buds.

We think this is deceptive and plain wrong. If the can says it has fruit, then the drink should have real fruit and real vitamins from that fruit. It’s hard to do, and even harder to perfect, but we use only REAL ingredients. Turn the can over and you’ll see raspberries, grapefruit, lime, sage, mint, ginger… the list goes on. We take an authentic and thoughtful approach to EVERY drink.


So to sum it up, we believe Elephant Craft is distinguished by our purpose-driven ethos, fun vibrant brand, and our steadfast determination to bring the highest quality craft hard seltzers to the market at an affordable price.


Our in-house mixologist and brew-team work in tandem to craft balanced beverages exploding with flavor, creating a crucial edge over the competition with a higher alcohol content to punch out other mousy seltzers in the market.

The Vision


Elephant as the biggest, boldest migration in craft hard seltzer

We want to establish Elephant as the premier innovator in craft hard seltzer, so much so that we’re in a category of our own of truly unique craft seltzers. In year one, we will explore and dominate the DTC and potential self-distribution environment in Southern California -- building local, unbeatable brand loyalty and ambassadorship. In doing so, we plan to show consistent love to our local herd through relentless PR and experiential marketing.


In year two, we will expand to 3 new markets: Arizona, Nevada and our friends in Northern California as well as exploring our “Watering Hole” concept. Moving forward from there, we plan to expand in mostly coastal areas, but we’ll focus on where the pull is. We want to build deep and local, as opposed to an immediate shotgun, national approach.

We plan to integrate into traditional distribution models along the way, building out our very own cost-efficient production facility by the end of 2022.


Our growth is driven through diving  deep within each of our existing markets, increasing brand ambassadorship and creating higher “turn off the shelf.” If we create the demand first, when we get to the market the pull will be higher, the marketing less expensive, and the buyers will be eager to bring us in: more SKUs, more revenue, higher volume.

OUR LEADERSHIP


A passionate, progressive stampede

Our ele-vated team is made up of top-performing beverage and sales industry professionals who not only know how to move the needle in business development but have shaped the craft beer industry into the titan it is today. We are strategically aligned with advisors who are tusk-deep and vertically integrated in the seltzer and alcohol industry allowing them to provide us with support, direction, and resources that keep us aligned with consumer demands while helping us stay ahead of the curve. We’ve worked for years bringing this vision and brand to life with our core team, constructing a progressive and innovative growth strategy.

Why Invest


As an elephant never forgets... Long Live Elephant Craft!

Simply put, we’ve poured our hearts and souls into creating the highest-quality, uniquely crafted, memorable and seriously strong hard seltzers that stand out in the beverage market crowd. 


The focus of our brand to do good, make good and be good is incredibly important to us, as we develop relationships and products that our customers truly trust. 


The market has been primed for differentiation. In a market that is on track to add $10 billion in sales over the next 5 years, that can’t be done on the backs of the same exact flavors getting pumped out by every big beer brand. Consumers WANT something new and exciting. They want a premium product and to put their money towards a company with a mission that they can relate to. No one has known how to put all those pieces together. Until now. 


Elephant Craft will change the landscape of seltzer and build a new category that’s focused on quality, transparency, mission, and fun. Do good, be good, and make good. 


When joining our HERD, we’re inviting you to raise your trunks with us and not only helping to bring a better beverage to the market, but also making a better world!

Let's dive into how we “Make Good.“

4 months ago

Everything we do is guided by our mantra of “Do Good, Be Good, Make Good.” and today, we want to dive into how we “Make Good.“ Our goal is to ELEvate the expectations of the hard seltzer consumer by creating a seltzer that tastes like it was muddled in front of you using only REAL ingredients- real fruit, roots, and botanicals. No, we don’t want you to have to read an ingredients list 20 ingredients long. Still, we promise transparency so you’ll be able to read everything on the label and know none of it was “manufactured natural flavors.” For example- our 6.5% ABV Mixed Berries flavor was made with REAL blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, limes, ginger, and a touch of sage. No Junk in your Trunk, just a beverage made with intent and passion that you can taste.

What does it mean to "Be Good"?

5 months ago

We try to live and breathe our mantra of "Do Good, Be Good, Make Good." But what does it mean to "Be Good"? Yes, we've elevated the seltzer category by creating a best in class seltzer that supports our mission to make the world a better place… but being good, to us, is more than that. Not just tipping well and holding the door for others (which we think is great as well), but our HERD mentality is about being active in our communities, investing in good causes, being good friends, and helping whenever you have the means to do so. Individually, it's loving ourselves enough to enjoy life. Stepping outside to enjoy the sun, getting some exercise, eating and drinking food and drinks that have positive nutritional value, and smiling as much as possible. Isn't this what the elephants would do if they were just a bit smaller and had more dexterity in their hands.

New Partnership with Karl Strauss!

5 months ago

We are making the earth shake with all the dancing and trunk raising we’re doing over here! 

 

As of May 13th, Elephant Craft Hard Seltzer has signed a distribution agreement with what we view as the perfect distributor for us in Southern California- Karl Strauss Distribution. There is a ton of consideration and due diligence that goes into partnering with the right distributor (and we’ve talked with them all in Southern CA). We look at their leadership and team, their footprint/account coverage, size of team and training, level of support, feedback from retailers and their current suppliers, growth strategy, and most importantly, their integrity and values. Karl Strauss Distribution is hitting on all cylinders. 

 

Karl Strauss Brewery was the FIRST craft brewery in the now craft beverage mecca of San Diego. In building out their distribution company, they started with the foundation of wanting to “give like-minded, independent beverage producers an avenue for bringing their labors of love to market.” Like Elephant Craft, their commitment to quality and community is second to none. Their team of beverage professionals is fueled by passion and drive. They are hungry to help their brands grow and flourish and have fantastic relationships with each of their suppliers. 

 

We couldn’t be more excited to partner with such a stand-up team. We hope you will follow our journey with Karl Strauss and Karl Strauss Distribution on the following social channels. We’ll keep you up to date as to when we’ll be on their trucks in So Cal soon!

The Elephant Craft Hard Seltzer Herd

We are a seltzer with soul!

5 months ago

In the likeness of the African Elephant- we like to do things a little bit bigger here at Elephant Craft. We focus on crafting seltzers that are harder, healthier, and happier- or as we like to put it, we make seltzers with soul.  That said, in building this company we wanted to have a foundation that is about more than just making the highest quality seltzers built with passion and intent. So we created a mantra that guides everything that we do: "Do Good, Be Good, Make Good"

In the next couple of weeks, you'll hear us talking more about what these core values mean to us, but today we wanted to share a little about how we aspire to "Do Good."

Our world is getting a little less wondrous every day- and to us, that's just not acceptable. We're losing forests to development, glaciers to global warming, and according to the World Wildlife Fund, "over the last 50 years- the global rate of species extinction is at least tens to hundreds of times higher than it has averaged over the past 10 million years." We think it is our responsibility to "Do Good" by not only sharing and offering resources as to how we can all make a difference but to also use our business as a way to give back by donating 1% of our profits towards wildlife conservation efforts. We can make a difference, but we have to be willing to be bold and take action.

We hope you'll join us in our mission to make the world a better place, one delicious sip at a time.

The Elephant Craft Hard Seltzer Herd

We're Off to a Flying Start!

5 months ago

We are fast approaching the 2-week mark since the launch of our Start Engine campaign and are pleased to announce that we have surpassed our $10K minimum by more than $70,000. In no time, we hope to be well over $100,000 in total funds raised. When we decided to raise funds in a fashion that would allow our community to participate and grow along with us, we had no idea the level of interest and support from a growing Herd. Thank you to all that have committed to our mission of Do Good, Be Good, Make Good. Those of you still evaluating the opportunity, don’t miss the chance to be a part of the revolution that puts Elephant Craft Seltzer in the hands of fun-loving folks everywhere as they #gettrunk.
