CHFA Launch Pad

In partnership with: 


 

Congratulations to Partake Brewing for winning this year’s CHFA Launch Pad held at CHFA East in September. With a prize package valued at almost $30,000, the competition received applications from 52 companies all vying for top spot as the most innovative new product coming to market. Eight finalists were selected to present a three minute pitch to our panel of judges that included Ryan Benn, alive Publishing; Lisa Sartor, Banyan Capital Partners; and Mike Fata, Founder, Manitoba Harvest and Chair of CHFA’s Board of Directors.

 

 

Partake Brewing presented their craft non-alcoholic pale ale to the judges, sharing the journey of its creation along with plans to develop non-alcoholic stout and lager.

 

“We had so many people come to our booth to sample our product and talk to us because of the recognition from winning the competition” said Ted Fleming, Founder & CEO of Partake Brewing “These interactions have helped us to achieve the goals we set for ourselves when we decided to attend our first CHFA show: meaningful discussions and partnerships with influencers, distributors, and retailers.” To learn more about Ted’s story behind the creation of Partake Brewing, click here or visit the Partake Brewing website.
