Reasons to Invest

Veterans to crowdfunding! Join over 850 investors who have successfully invested in Ola Brew’s previous Regulation Crowdfunding offerings!
Hard Seltzers are the fastest growing beverage category! Invest in one of the first community-funded hard seltzer companies!
A team of experienced beverage industry leaders and innovators that has already successfully brewed, marketed and sold beers, hard ciders, and hard seltzers in the Hawaii Market - additionally we’ve just broken into the Southern CA market.

‘Āina Inspired and Crafted with Pride!

We’re Hawaiian Ola Brewing Corporation (dba Ola Brew), a proud Hawaii brewery putting the community at the forefront of our company. We’ve already built a successful brewery in Hawaii with our delicious beers, hard ciders, and hard seltzers, seeing over $3.5M in gross sales in 2019. Now we are expanding our products to the mainland US, starting with our newest and hottest product - Ola Hard Seltzers.


Our mission is to encourage growth in Hawaii's agricultural economy by purchasing local ingredients and incorporating them into our beverages. By contracting Hawaii based farmers, we are also incentivizing a circular economy and creating more job opportunities within our community. Using ingredients grown in Hawaii has allowed us to optimize and innovate from fruits and botanicals that are truly anchored in true flavors of Hawaii.

Our first line of seltzers has already brought our monthly revenue to over $550K by December 2019, 67% growth in sales since its launch in September 2019. With this raise we plan to continue growing our reach in the seltzer market, pushing our products to new regions and to more people who have eagerly been awaiting their arrival to a store near them!

Our Approach


Doing well while doing good

When we look at the market, we see brands without human connections, beverages without a distinct taste, and communities who do not reap the benefits of the businesses that rely on them.

We understand the value of a reciprocal partnership between a business and their (our) surrounding community. The more we support our community the more we feel our business supported. All of our ingredients are locally sourced from various segments of the amazing Hawaii-based agricultural economy, that inspires us to produce unique beers, ciders, and hard seltzers.

 

Our mission


It starts with the freshest ingredients

Ola Brew’s mission is to encourage growth in Hawaii's agricultural economy by purchasing responsibly-grown local ingredients and incorporating them into our craft beverages.

 

As we move forward, we want to increase the amount of money we spend on our farmers. We want to make an impact on our beautiful Hawaii community as well as your own fridges - bringing high-quality seltzers to people everywhere. With $326k worth of products purchased from farmers in 2019, we're already seeing the impact we work so hard to create.

The Market


The Hard Seltzer market has been bubbling up

gif

Sales of hard seltzer have been trending upward in recent months, with an explosive 2019 that saw sales growth of over 220%, with a forecast reaching $4.7B in sales by 2022. The U.S alone saw 82.5 million cases of hard seltzers sold!


During the same period, beer sales grew less than 1%.


This boom aligns well with recent health-conscious trends, as well as the market’s desire for innovation in the alcohol industry. More and more consumers are looking for low sugar, low calorie, and beverages low in alcohol.

Our Traction


Veterans to crowdfunding!  Join over 850 investors who have successfully invested in Ola Brew’s previous Regulation Crowdfunding offerings!

Since opening our doors on December 15th, 2017 we have closed three separate crowdfunding campaigns, raised as convertible notes, with over 850 investors.


Just 7 months after opening our brewery, we had our flagship IPA in over 300 locations around Hawaii, including Whole Foods, Costco, Safeway, Walmart, Target, Foodlands, and Times. Today, we are sold in over 650 stores across Hawaii with 7 main products — As we are expanding our reach and hitting new regions, our plan is to have 12 total products sold across Hawaii and even in the mainland USA. We truly could not have done it without our community, our farmers, and investors like you!


As we expand to the US, we have secured a contract for an exclusive Whole Foods launch in California that launched on July 1st, 2020. We started with our latest product - Ola Hard Seltzers - which have fluctuated in the top 15 hard seltzers worldwide in the Untappd App.


*This refers to growth in Net Revenue during these time periods. 

The Business Model


Revenue comes from our own distribution, our taproom, and wholesale partners

In 2019 our largest portion of revenue came from our sales to distributors of our packaged goods. This made up about 52% of our revenue. We began with big-box retailers in 2018 in order to access larger distributors and reach more people on the mainland USA.


Outside of retailers, 38% of our revenue comes directly from our taproom,  and the remaining 10% of our revenue comes from our draft sales that our team delivers directly to bars and restaurants across Hawaii Island.

Since the beginning of Ola Brew, we decided that making a positive impact was just as important as growing our brand. We know that quality products start with quality ingredients. That’s why every step of the way, we’ve worked to incorporate local Hawaii farmers and produce them into our products.

How We Are Different


Mission-driven. Environmentally & Community-focused.

By examining how we can help our community, and drive up demand for local farmers, our process is totally unique, and not only helps us bring jobs and growth to our home, but we believe it serves to provide a stronger foundation for our brand.


Additionally, we’ve worked hard to create a more holistic approach when choosing or flavor profiles, looking first at what grows best in our environment, then perfecting those flavors to appease a more traditional pallet. Our seltzers stray away from the typical citrus, cherry, and berry flavors we all know of, because those ingredients don't grow here in Hawaii.


Our crowdfunded identity further ties us to the principles of accessibility and service to a positive impact on the world.

Why Invest


We do things differently

We launched Ola Brew with the idea in mind that we can build a powerful brand alongside a powerful community. We have seen our community support us every step of the way, from our supply chain to investors, to avid customers — which has only inspired us to give back more and do our part for the community.


With an incredible product, team, and support system, we believe we have seen our incredible potential materialize as we grow the Ola Hard Seltzer Brand in the fastest-growing category of the alcohol industry. 


With your help, we can continue building out this ethical business model, and bring it to more and more communities who need it.

We hit our $2.2 Million Fundraising Goal With a Couple Days to Spare!

5 months ago

Aloha Everyone! 

We have reached our goal! And with a couple of days to spare! And we couldn't have done it without you all. We want to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for the incredible support of Ola Brew, and the mission we pursue to grow Hawaii's agricultural economy. On top of achieving our fundraising goals, we had a very eventful weekend! After entering our products into the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, we took home a double gold for our Hibiscus Lavender Hard Seltzer, and also medalled for our Lemongrass Hard Seltzer and Orange Vanilla Hard Seltzer! More on that in a bit. 

On another note, progress in our Hilo Taproom is coming right along as we are adding our finishing touches and are looking forward to opening open to our Hilo Ohana shortly! More news to come on this! 

We are so happy to have welcomed almost 2000 new investors in this round. We appreciate the aloha and belief in our pursuit to perpetuate the importance of sustainably and responsibly caring for our aina, and in our efforts to continue growing Hawaii's agricultural economy with every product that we create. We are proud to have you all in our Ohana.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions or curiosities, and we look forward to the journey ahead with you all. 


Mahalo,

We reached $2,000,000 over the weeekend and Made History!

5 months ago

Aloha All, 


These two lovelies enjoyed a pint in our taproom on Saturday afternoon, learned about our CF raise, and invested! It just so happened that Michael and Madison's investment hit a milestone for crowdfunded breweries across the nation! 


From their contribution, Ola Brew became the first Brewery in the United States to raise over $2M in a single crowdfunding raise! And while they were the catalyst to this incredible milestone, each of you 1818 Start Engine investors have played an integral role.  And that, folks, is what crowdfunding is all about! Mahalo, mahalo, mahalo!! 


We are nearing the end of our campaign. With just 11 days until we close the campaign, we have raised 91% of our goal! So if you have any lingering questions or curiosities, we are here and happy to answer them.  We look forward to hearing from you all and again are humbled by the support we have received from our growing community of now 2650 community investors! 


We look forward to hearing from you all! 


Ma ka ha'aha'a,

2020 Review and Sneak Peak into the rest of 2021

6 months ago




Aloha All! 

Happy 2021! I hope this finds you all happy and healthy and enjoying the early days of this year. 2020. What a year, filled with every unknown, plot twist, and pivot we could have imagined, and yet, we are still celebrating our wins, our impacts on our local farmers, and our growing investment community. In March 2020, as many businesses had to do globally, we closed our taproom, and while that source of income was very minimal for the totality of Q2, we were still able to pivot focus, maintain productivity and set ourselves up for continued growth and success in the upcoming year. 

2020 HIGHLIGHTS BY MONTH

  • Started 2020 off with a Bang - Highest gross sales ever!

Gross Sales 2020: $4,210,109.42

Impact to our local agricultural community:


  • Purchased $431,579.61 from 47 Hawaii farmers.  
  • Ginger, Lemongrass, Dragonfruit and White Pineapple and citrus were our top purchased ingredients that went into our beverages.

Sneak Peak into 2021 

As I mentioned earlier, we have been hard at work developing new innovative products to launch in each quarter. Below is a timeline of new product launches for the year: 

           

 

In addition to new product launches scheduled for 2021, we are also continuing to diversify our revenue streams with a new tap on the Hilo side of Hawaii Island. We look forward to opening our second taproom in May 2021.  Photos to come!

While you will receive a full Q1 2021 update in the next 15 days, I will give you a little sneak peak into the excitement of having the best Tap Room Sales to date last Month! We have also medalled in 2 different international competitions (which we will also get into in Q1 2021 update) for our beers, hard ciders, and hard seltzers!

Investment Opportunities: 

We are now at the tail end of our Start Engine Crowdfunding raise. We have experienced an incredible fundraise, welcoming over 1700 new shareholders. To date, we have raised 84% of our goal and have 16 days left until we close the round. If you or anyone you know is still interested in investing, now is your chance to invest and inform friends and family of the opportunity!

We want to thank our growing community of shareholders for continuing to incrementally ignite our passions to propel our mission forward to grow Hawaii’s agricultural economy with every pound of locally cultivated and sourced fruit. From the bottom of our hearts, we appreciate the opportunity to innovate our product offerings and through sourcing from more and more local farmers. 


 

Let us know if you have any questions or other curiosities and I will be happy to answer them.

Me ka ha'aha'a,

Catching up! Products launched in Q1

6 months ago

Aloha Everyone! 


Happy Monday and we have great news share! In just the first 10 days since we reopened our campaign,  we have raised over $660,000! Mind blown! We are so thrilled to have all you new investors and are currently at 77% of our fundraising goal! 

Now, for mor exciting updates: As we all know, 2020 was an interesting year with ups and downs.  One of the most beneficial aspects was we were given time to get creative and plan our 2021 year in retail product launches.  



So far two out of three of these new Q1,  releases have won gold in different competitions internationally. 


Ola Hard Teas: 4.3% ABV

Why Coffee Leaf!? Well, number one, it tastes delicious! And two, by using the coffee leaves, that are currently viewed as a by-product, and turning them into a value-added good, coffee farmers will earn additional revenue with the same crop! Using Ka'u grown oranges, South Kona Grown Tulsi and Hilo Grown Lemongrass, these island flavors are incredibly refreshing and perfect pair to your spring and summer beach days!

Da Hazy Light: 4.2% ABV 45 IBU

Our first Gold Medal-winning brew at Best of Craft in Bend, Oregon, this fairly recently popularized style seems to be here to stay and we could not be more excited about it! Even better, the style emphasizes rich, fruity hop aromas, but very little bitterness. Expect a rich, creamy first impression full of mango and stonefruit flavors which then takes a turn towards a crisp, clean and mouthwatering finish with a touch of green hop spiciness. Since these beers are also called “Freshies”, we will frequently brew small batches of this style to assure maximum freshness!

Orange Vanilla Hard Seltzer: 4.8% ABV

Our Orange-Vanilla Seltzer takes us right back to our childhoods with its creamy orange flavor, just without any dairy. We use whole oranges to get both juiciness and that zesty creaminess, then finish it with more than just a little real vanilla. It may taste way richer, but it actually is the same sugar and calorie content as our other Seltzers!


For our Hawaii Ohana, these delicious libations are available throughout Hawaii in over 600 locations! Find them at your local Foodlands, Safeways, Walmarts, Wholefoods, Targets, Aloha Island Marts, KTA's, Times Supermarkets, Tamuras,  Village Bottle Shop, Kona Reef Liquor, Kona Wine Market, Bev Mart, Haleiwa Bottle Shop and many many more small independent and family owned establishments. 

And California Ohana! Our seltzers are available in Wholefoods and Total Wines, and our Hard Teas are available in Trader Joes and soon to be Total Wines as well! For a list of other independents in CA please checkout our store locator

As always, we are so grateful to have you as part of the journey with us to increase Hawaii's agricultural economy, one Ola Brew at a time and we really look forward to sharing our successes. 

Please let us know if you have any questions or curiousities! 


Me ka ha'aha'a,

Great News! We just crossed our $800,000 mark and we have some exciting updates! During our COVID - shutdowns, we were hard at work, creating new products and flavor profiles to launch in Q4 of 2020. Here we are in Q4 and we are excited to announce our Hard Tea that will hit store shelves in mid-November! Our multi-pronged approach to innovate beyond beer, beyond cider, and even beyond hard seltzers is designed to benefit our shareholders and stakeholders to create a regenerative agricultural and economic plan that ultimately delivers super tasty products and serves our community in a positive way.


Why hard teas? Well, let's look at some hard numbers.  Boston Beer Company's Twisted Tea has hit sales $392M through Oct 4th according to IRI while their Truly brand has sold $720M through Oct 4th.  Their hard tea is currently selling 55% of hard teas as they are their hard seltzer sales and is owning the hard tea market as a whole due to lack of other options on the shelf. As consumers continue to explore more beyond beer products, Ola Brew continues to deliver. Just as we hit the Hard Seltzer wave at the perfect time here in Hawaii in August of 2019, we know our Hawaii consumers are ready for a new and exciting product and look forward to launching in mid November in Safeways, Targets, Walmarts, Foodlands and more statewide in mid-November. 


Why Coffee Leaf? Ola Brew will always innovate with our local farmers in mind, and how we can best serve them and our consumers. The coffee leaf has long been a waste product for coffee farmers but makes a delicious tea with light caramel notes. We chose to use the coffee leaf as our base tea for a unique flavor and additional revenue source for Kona coffee farmers.


If you have any questions on this or would like more information on our current Crowdfunding Campaign, please let us know and we look forward to hearing from you! 


Thank you all so much for your support and have a beautiful day! 


Mahalo,

Ola Brew Signs Lease For New Taproom Location

12 months ago

Aloha All, 


So a lot has happened in the last few weeks! Not only have we increased our maximum fundraising goal from $535,000 to $1.07M, but we also have some very exciting news of where those extra funds will be allocated!  Ola Brew has just signed a lease for a new taproom space. While we are still keeping the location a bit of a secret, -we sure do love surprises, we will say that this new location is in a city three times the population of our current taproom location. With renovations already underway, we look forward to opening this new location and concept in January of 2021!


We have been blown away by the excitement and support of our new 645 investors. Thank you all so much and we look forward to telling you more very soon! 


Mahalo! 


Naeha, Brett and the Ola Ohana
