Multi-brand beverage start-up MOD Beverage has acquired 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.
MOD Bevergae is a new start-up company that describes itself on its website as 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.
MOD will retain the brewing, operations and sales staff from TBA Beverage and will provide a new management structure.
“We see MOD as a way to merge the large-scale distribution model of a Diageo or a MolsonCoors with the quality and imagination of the craft breweries that we love,” Mroczek says. “We’re really all about getting great brands and great products to as many Canadians as possible – beer, wine, cider, you name it.”
Rounding out MOD’s portfolio are Mighty Hard Coconut Water, Parade Hard Seltzer, Getaway Hard Cider and Boujee Canned Wine.
