New Zeland Craft Brewery Appoints Total Beverage Solution as U.S. Importer
New Zealand based Moa Brewing Co. and US Importer, Total Beverage Solution (TBS), are excited to announce the craft brewery’s re-launch into the US market. Moa will anchor the new Emerging Brands division of TBS, focusing on new and developmental brands looking for entry and distribution in the US Market.
Moa Brewing Co. was founded in 2003 by Josh Scott, New Zealand’s only Certified Cicerone and son of renowned Marlborough winemaker Allan Scott. “The whole philosophy of Moa right from day one was to put a winemaker’s spin on beer” says Scott. Moa is now the largest and fastest growing New Zealand owned craft brewery with an annual production of 17,000 barrels. “We are thrilled to have Moa Brewing Co. represented in the USA via TBS Emerging Brands division.” stated Gareth Hughes, General Manager of Moa, “We feel there is great synergy between both companies considering the journeys we are on in terms of growth and brand alignment. We now have a set of products that are far more suited to the U.S. Market and are excited to be back selling Moa in the home of craft beer.”
Emerging Brands will focus on beers from the Moa Reserve Range including a variety of bottle-conditioned classics with distinct New Zealand ingredients. The beer range will consist of: Pils Methode – dry hopped with Motueka hops and bottle conditioned with champagne yeast, South Pacific IPA featuring the popular Nelson Sauvin hops, St. Joseph’s Belgian-Style Tripel, Imperial Stout aged in Pinot Noir barrels, and Southern Alps White IPA.
Moa’s craft beers are set to re-launch in early 2017 in select markets. For more information about Moa Brewing Co. or Emerging Brands, please contact Justin Kirby at 864-320-8202 or by email email@example.com.

Moa Brewing Company
Moa (pronounced “more”) Brewing Company is an international multi-award winning craft brewery. The range of Moa beers and ciders are proudly brewed using traditional, costly, inefficient and labour intensive techniques with a focus on local ingredients, including internationally renowned New Zealand hops. This traditional technique naturally carbonates the beer, significantly enhances shelf life and longevity, creates dynamic and complex flavours that change over time (like a good wine), and gives the beer an elegant, champagne-like mouthfeel.
