GET A PIECE OF LANIKAI BREWING COMPANY
In an industry of large companies that mass-produce industrialized beer, Lanikai Brewing Company creates authentic, Hawaiʻi-made craft beer and spirits using native, premium ingredients and is one of the most sustainable breweries in the country.
The global craft beer market had a 2021 value of $26.8 billion and is only continuing to grow.* Lanikai Brewing Company is thriving in this market, experiencing exponential growth. Hawaiʻi is one of the smallest producer markets (only 18 breweries state-wide), yet we receive around 8.5 million visitors per year. As it stands, we have a disproportionate amount of breweries per visitor compared to other places, putting local producers in high demand. Hawaiʻi is also the springboard to the Asian markets, opening doors to tremendous opportunities for local businesses.
The company aligns itself to modern consumer values by focusing on authenticity, sustainability, and transparency.* We have always been community-focused, and it’s time to have more community owners.
Lanikai Brewing Company (LBC) is an independently-owned, innovative, Island Inspired®, Hawaiʻi-made craft beer and spirits venture. Devoted to the islands of Hawaiʻi and the local community, Lanikai is one of the most sustainable breweries in the country and incorporates ingredients grown locally and native to Hawaiʻi in all products. Our local Kailua, Oʻahu taproom is a family-friendly gathering place with indoor and outdoor seating, a food menu, and a full-service bar. Numerous additional locations are in motion for the near future, including Hilo, Oʻahu’s North Shore, and another neighbor island location. Lanikai Brewing is also currently working to upscale to a larger production facility within the coming years in order to keep up with our increasing product demand.
Lanikai’s distinguished beers and spirits result from our never-ending commitment to preserve the beauty and integrity of Hawaiʻi. Our products are bold, flavorful, and seasonal, and our business practices are transparent and island-first, using ingredients local to Hawaiʻi. We are proud to be one of the most energy-efficient and sustainable breweries in the nation, and our restaurant and brewpub is registered as “Ocean Friendly” by the Surfrider Foundation.
THE BUSINESS MODEL
In an industry that consists of large companies that mass-produce industrialized beer and spirits, we take our cues from premium, local, rare, and exotic ingredients, grown by local farmers or foraged from across the Pacific, to produce bold and flavorful beverages, often using Native Hawaiian yeasts and microflora. We maintain a profound commitment to our community and islands in everything we do. Already one of the most sustainable breweries/distilleries in the country, we are working towards becoming one of the first that is completely carbon-negative.
Spearheading our beer selection are our four Flagships: Moku Imperial IPA, Pillbox Porter, Party Wave Pilsner, and Cheehoo IPA. Our Hawaiian Wild Ales are brewed and fermented with yeast and bacteria found only in Hawaiʻi. We also offer 15 incredible Seasonal Beers which range from sours to barleywine, stouts to Hefs. We also produce exceptional small-batch spirits highlighting the authentic flavors of the islands: our lemongrass gin, our macadamia-flavored amaretto–“Macaretto”–as well as our latest addition - Pineapple Swipe, Pineapple Lilikoi Swipe, and Pineapple Mango Swipe – have all met great acclaim. We have been featured in Forbes Magazine, Lonely Planet as one of the Best Breweries in the World, KauKau, JTB, and countless other publications for our products.
The Market & our traction
After prevailing through COVID-19 and adding even more superior offerings to our menu, Lanikai Brewing Company is poised to expand. We have recently secured a strong financial partner to help us establish a large production facility on Oʻahu and have 3 additional taproom/restaurant locations across the Hawaiian Islands already in motion. Most importantly, our distributor closed a deal with Anheuser-Busch (A-B) for exclusive distribution rights in Hawaiʻi, which has already led us to double our sales. As our brand strengthens, we find ourselves ideally situated to rise to the top of the multibillion-dollar craft beverage industry.
This is the first time we are offering the public an opportunity to invest in a slice of our paradise. Since 2014, we’ve successfully produced exceptional, unique, and conscientious Hawaiʻi-made beer and spirits. We are selling 100% of what we make as fast as we can make it and are on track to reach three times our current distributions this year alone. We have huge opportunities to expand our brand direct-to-consumers and are building multiple restaurants across Hawaiʻi. But we need more capital to foster this growth. From wherever you are, you can be a part of our sun-soaked, drink-in-hand, adventure-seeking, island lifestyle. Un-tapped opportunity awaits.
Lanikai Brewing Company is an Island Inspired® craft beer and spirits company with 100% of our brews made in Hawaiʻi. All of our products feature locally grown Hawaiian ingredients. As one of the most sustainable breweries in the country, we are working towards becoming one of the first carbon-negative breweries.

This means eligible StartEngine shareholders will receive a 10% bonus for any units they purchase in this offering. For example, if you buy 100 units of Class C Common Units at $2.04/ unit, you will receive 110 units of Class C Common Units, meaning you'll own 110 units for $204.

This 10% Bonus is only valid during the investors eligibility period. Investors eligible for this bonus will also have priority if they are on a waitlist to invest and the company surpasses its maximum funding goal.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
