All New Business Model
Brew Hub provides an entirely new business model for the craft brewing industry. With the right products and partnership opportunities, we’re putting the power back into the hands of the brand holder—without the capital exposure.
With our first brewing and packaging facility in Lakeland, Florida, we will become an incubation center for partner-brewers looking to capitalize on the fast-growing craft segment. Our unique, turnkey solution will help craft brewers overcome production and distribution barriers to brand profitability.
Brew Hub has the ability to identify marketplace trends, then source, create, and market brands quickly and efficiently to create a distinct competitive advantage at retail.
- Dedicated, local market brewing/packaging facilities to manufacture and co-pack various beverage products
- Access to the premier distribution channels to address the needs of an ever-evolving industry
- Unique partnership capabilities and offerings for brands facing challenges associated with capacity, geography, capital constraints and more
Brew Hub was founded in 2012 in St. Louis, Missouri by a team of industry executives and craft brewing experts led by Timothy Schoen. Together with a strong partner network, our leadership team provides brewing, packaging, distribution and sales services to craft brewers today. And with plans to operate five breweries across the country, we are focused on the future. Our investment partner, The Yucaipa Companies, bring in the financial strength and the stability to support our short-term goals and long-term plans.
Brew Hub is led by a team of experienced beer professionals with over 125 years of combined experience in all facets of the industry, including brewing, packaging, sales, marketing, distribution, operations, and hospitality.
As Brew Hub's Chief Executive Officer, Tim oversees all aspects of this innovative concept, which promises to be a game changer for the craft brewing industry.
As Chief of Brewing Operations, Jim Ottolini is responsible for the brewing and packaging operations at Brew Hub’s brewery in Lakeland, Florida as well the design and construction of the company’s second brewery which is scheduled to open in St. Louis in summer 2016.
