Well, we’ve finally launched!
We’ve been hard at work getting this company up and running, and now that we’re officially herewe’d like share a little about who we are and what we do.
MOD Beverage Inc. is a locally owned, multi-brand beverage start-up based in Vancouver, focusing on innovative product and brand concepts for the Canadian alcoholic and non-alcoholic markets. Our current portfolio is made up of Spectrum Beer, Haus Lager, Boujee Wines, Parade Hard Seltzer, among others, which are distributed across the country.
MOD is inspired by the success of institutional global beverage companies but funnelled through a Millennial perspective: innovative and sustainable, with brands that capture the imagination and products that inspire.
Last month, MOD acquired some of the assets from the now-defunct TBA Beverage (formerly known as Craft Collective Beerworks and Factory Brewing). These assets include beer brands Spectrum Beer, Haus Lager, Phantom Beer and the Canadian operations of Seattle-based Odin Brewing, as well as the brewing facility at 1575 Vernon Drive, Vancouver, B.C.
While MOD will retain some of the great brewing, operations and sales talent from TBA Beverage, MOD is a new business, locally owned and operated, with a new ownership and management structure.
The company is wholly owned by founders Alex Milne, CEO, a Vancouver-based serial entrepreneur with 15 years of start-up and manufacturing management experience; and Paul Mroczek, President, a beer industry veteran in both the craft and macro sectors.
We’ll be developing and launching more new brands, with plans to develop each into self-sustaining companies. The goal is to build a portfolio that champions every segment of the alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage markets, from cold-brew coffee to hazy IPAs and everything in between.
We really see this as a way to merge the quality of our favourite craft and artisanal brands with the more sophisticated sales and distribution models to reach every corner of Canada (and beyond, eventually).
This is just the beginning. We’ll be sharing more info on this page, including new brand and product launches, expansion plan, musings about the industry, and other news.
We’re excited to be here. Stay tuned!
