The company aims to share its culture with active lifestyle millennials as it continues to expand along the West Coast.

Instead of offering a premixed ready-to-drink cocktail, the brand’s unique packaging gives the user the experience and ability to mix spirits and fruit juice immediately before consuming.

Kat Friis is the Founder and CMO of Dr. Scobii, an upstart water kefir company that aims to make gut health more accessible to everyday consumers. The company recognized white space in the market for a better tasting probiotic beverage that would appeal to people beyond kombucha drinkers.
Chad Hazen, founder of Sofee, is focused on developing refreshing beverages, but his approach is not that ordinary. Hazen combines the two popular categories of cold brew coffee and soft drinks to create a curious offering that hasn’t quite hit the mainstream consumer yet, but he’s ok with that. To create the product Hazen is leveraging his relationships with breweries across the U.S. to employ the “gypsy brewing model” common in the beer industry.
Ash Crawford is the co-founder of Quivr, a nitro coffee and tea brand that aims to fuel health conscious and active consumers with plant-based energy.
