FROM CUBA TO CHARLESTON
The Island Brands’ story began on a rum-soaked trip to Cuba when founders Scott Hansen and Brandon Perry discovered that the amazing people in this culturally rich country had limited options to only low quality beer.
They set out on a mission to make better beer more accessible to Cuba, and in the process they discovered that this lack of quality was not unique to Cuba. In the USA and throughout the world corporate conglomerate beer brands are using corner cutting, low quality ingredients to maximize profits all at the expense of the end consumer.
Brandon and Scott, both serial entrepreneurs, began working to perfect a recipe for an all-clean, easy-drinking beer, and after two years of recipe testing, Island Coastal Lager was born. The duo quickly realized they had created something special that could compete with the biggest beer brands in the market. While there are still political obstacles that we face with getting the beer to Cuba, Island Brands has already flourished throughout the Southeastern US.
CLEAN BEER FOR EVERYONE
Our goal to bring better beer to Cuba hasn’t changed, but now we have an even bigger mission: to bring our all clean easy drinking beer brand family to the world.
