Fueled by the excitement of being a pioneer in the largest and fastest growing craft beer market in SE Asia and the driven by the passion from heart of our co-founder’s childhood stuffed animal, Sealy, who lost an eye through years of love.

MAKE SOMETHING BETTER, TODAY
We're hungry, we're passionate, and we love tough problems and new challenges. You don't hear a lot of "I don't know how" or "I can't" with our team. When faced with a hurdle, we jump.
CULTIVATE RAVING FANS
We create raving fans of our customers and of each other. If our customers aren't raving about our people and our products, then we have not achieved what we strive for.
PLAY FOR EACH OTHER
Above all, we're a team. That means we show up for each other, act with empathy, and bring our authentic selves to work every day. We're growing this company not for own personal gain, but for each other.
WORK ETHIC WINS
We believe the teams willing to put in the extra effort, go the extra mile, and are accountable for their actions, will be the ones who see their visions and dreams realized.
We seek out, embrace, and get (un)comfortable in knowing that if we’re not continuously changing, evolving, and improving - we’re falling behind.
ENJOY THE JOURNEY
We make sure our team feels appreciated, valued, and celebrated. We take the time to stop and acknowledge where we came from so that we don’t miss how impressive the climb is.
DO THE RIGHT THING
What do you do when no one else is looking? Our teams act with integrity and focus on putting ourselves in the shoes of others. We operate with transparency and unwavering candor, honesty and respect.
GET IT DONE
Our customers trust us to craft amazing products and we take that seriously. Our team will overcome obstacles, find solutions and deliver exceptional results. We hold ourselves accountable for outcomes, good and bad. And we don’t pass the buck.
