Hoplark HopTea was born out of co-founder Dean Eberhardt’s desire to have a healthy and complex beverage while on a break from drinking alcohol. The company developed a line of zero calorie, zero alcohol teas brewed with hops, delivering a flavor profile similar to beer. Hoplark HopTea won New Beverage Showdown 16 at BevNET Live Winter 2018 in Santa Monica. The brand launched exclusively nationwide with Whole Foods but is now open to working with additional retail and distribution partners to expand its footprint as it gains traction in the marketplace.
