NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Craft Brewers Conference — Lotus Beverage Alliance, a collective of experienced craft beverage equipment manufacturing companies, will showcase its innovative product offerings and industry-first financing program at the Craft Brewers Conference (“CBC”) in Nashville, May 7-10, 2023. Leveraging the craft beverage industry’s largest catalog of over 1,500 products, an expansive customer service team of beverage manufacturing experts, and a risk-averse financing program that helps brewers eliminate the need for a large, upfront investment, Lotus Beverage Alliance is doing more to help craft brewers and beverage startups reach the market faster with their premium products and diversify their product lines.
The North American craft beer market is expected to achieve a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13% between 2022 and 2027. However, the demand for new beverage options such as seltzers, non-alcoholic or low-alcohol cocktails, and specialty liquors has grown dramatically, resulting in craft brewers diversifying their beverage portfolios to meet the evolving tastes of consumers. For smaller craft breweries, this requires them to scale their manufacturing lines and add more equipment, which has been difficult to accomplish due to fragmented supply chains and the steep up-front costs of scaling. Too often, smaller craft beverage makers have been left on the sidelines, struggling to get their new products to market. Until now.
“The craft beverage industry has become more competitive than ever. Every player in this industry must be able to grow. To do that, they need to be nimble enough to broaden their product offerings. Lotus Beverage Alliance was created to address the fragmentation that has plagued the industry and frustrated craft brewers for decades. What’s more, our new financing program removes the upfront investment costs that prohibit many beverage companies from scaling,” said John Ansbro, CEO of Beverage Alliance. “We’re looking forward to meeting in person with craft brewers at CBC to hear about their challenges and sharing more on how Lotus Beverage Alliance can provide more innovative solutions that help them grow.”
Lotus Beverage Alliance’s wide array of beverage manufacturing equipment and its proprietary financing program enable beverage manufacturers to access the most comprehensive array of products spanning every step of production. The financing program offers a minimum down payment requirement, fast financing approval process, and same-day funding. Craft brewers can reach the market faster and compete with larger beverage manufacturers by paying for equipment and ingredients over time. Further, the Lotus Beverage Alliance team of craft beverage experts, many of whom are brewers themselves, can work closely with craft brewers to recommend the right products at the right price points to help them expand their manufacturing footprints quickly and cost effectively.
Lotus Beverage Alliance is the unified brand formed by the $100 million merger of six innovators in the beverage manufacturing equipment sector: Alpha Brewing Operations, GW Kent, Twin Monkeys, Stout Tanks and Kettles, Brewmation, and Automated Extractions. This will be Lotus Beverage Alliance’s first appearance at a beverage industry conference since the company was officially launched in April 2023. The Lotus Beverage Alliance team will meet with beverage makers live at CBC, sharing insights on what’s next for the industry and how craft brewers can expand their product lines to establish new revenue streams and stay competitive.
