Our Story

Our love for brewing great beer doesn’t stop at what’s been done before. Beer has always had an essential role in our culture at the center of celebrations, connections and even relaxation. After retiring from brewing nationally renowned craft beers, I was eager for a new challenge. That’s why we founded CERIA Brewing Company — to create great-tasting non-alcoholic brews,so that no matter why you choose not to drink alcohol, you can still enjoy a great tasting brew. We’ve crafted these brews with you in mind.

Non-Alcoholic Beer is the Anytime, Anywhere Beverage

Non-Alcoholic Beer is the Anytime, Anywhere Beverage

NON-ALCOHOLIC BEER IS THE ANYTIME, ANYWHERE BEVERAGE 

CERIA Brewing’s Grainwave and Indiewave  

ARVADA, Colorado (Aug. 20, 2020) – Non-Alcoholic (NA) craft beer is experiencing growth in the U.S. as beer drinkers realize it offers the great taste of beer without any downside.   You could say it’s definitely having a moment during a time when health and wellness are on everyone’s mind.   There are no restrictions where and when it can be consumed.  It’s the anytime, anywhere beverage – on the golf course, tennis court, while biking, hiking, fishing or most any other “ing” activity.  
NA beer is the fastest growing segment of the global beer market, expanding at an annual rate of 13% worldwide. Growth in the U.S. is even higher, according to Global Market Insights/Statista.  

Says Keith Villa, Ph.D., the legendary brewmaster who created Blue Moon and is now co-founder of the non-alcoholic Colorado craft brewery CERIA Brewing Company, “Interest in better health and wellness, active lifestyles, and a reduction in alcohol consumption – the so-called “sober curious” movement – is fueling this trend.   “While older Americans are motivated to be healthy to avoid illness, younger adults adopt healthy lifestyles and are reducing their alcohol consumption because they want to look and feel better.”  

Villa adds, “Beer has always had an essential role in our culture at the center of celebrations, connections and even relaxation. An NA beer helps people of all ages stay in control. Our beers are just like any other great tasting craft beers, except that they have no alcohol.  They allow people to fit into occasions where alcohol is served, but where they choose to abstain.”  

Another benefit to NA beer is that it’s plant based for good health and wellness – the bioactive ingredients in hops and grains provide important minerals and phenolic compounds. 

Villa considers NA craft beer ideal for after exercise rehydration and recovery due to its natural carbs, sodium, and fluid makeup.   “It’s a win-win brew that helps adults get more out of life.” 

 

In 2020, Villa’s CERIA Brewing Company created Grainwave NA, a refreshing, medium-bodied Belgian-Style White Ale brewed with blood orange peel and coriander, that is then dealcoholized. It contains 77 calories. 

Indiewave NA is a flavorful West Coast IPA, also alcohol free, that perfectly balances Cascade, Citra, and Amarillo hops with light caramel malts for a smooth citrusy character, then is dealcoholized. Indiewave comes in at just 99 calories.  

Both are about half the calories of comparable alcoholic brews.

CERIA Brewing Announces First Distributor Partnerships for its NA Craft Beers

CERIA Brewing Announces First Distributor Partnerships for its NA Craft Beers

CERIA BREWING ANNOUNCES FIRST DISTRIBUTOR PARTNERSHIPS FOR ITS GRAINWAVE AND INDIEWAVE NA CRAFT BEERS  


The Colorado Brand’s First Expansion into Groceries, Liquor Stores, and On-Premise 

ARVADA, Colo. (June 1, 2020) – CERIA Brewing Co., the Denver-area brewing company founded by the creator of Blue Moon beer, Keith Villa, Ph. D., and his wife Jodi Villa, today announced selection of its first group of distributors for CERIA’s line of non-alcohol (NA) craft beers.  
In early 2020, the company launched its two NA styles, Grainwave Belgian White Ale and Indiewave IPA, at over 200 Total Wine & More retail locations in 24 states. Now the brand is expanding to groceries, liquor retailers and on-premise restaurants and bars through its new distributor partnerships with: Burke Distributing Company, (Boston area); Atlas Distributing, Inc. (central and western Massachusetts); Commercial Distributing Company, Inc. (Massachusetts); LT Verrastro, Inc. (Pennsylvania); Frank Beverage Group (including Beer Capitol Distributing, LLC - Milwaukee, Frank Beer Distributors, Inc. - Madison, and La Crosse Beverage, LLC – La Crosse, Wisc.); Banko Beverage Co. (Lehigh and Northampton, Pa.); Wilson-McGinley, Inc. (Pittsburgh area), and Muller, Inc. (Philadelphia).  

“These are our first distributor relationships for our NA craft beers and, as such, represent a substantial step forward for CERIA Brewing,” says Dr. Villa. “The time is right to deliver great-tasting, non-alcohol products in a variety of new channels.”   

Adds Bill Burke, President of Burke Distributing, “Keith Villa is a legendary figure in the international world of brewing. We knew once he focused on the NA category, our market would respond well to a premium quality craft brew that could be enjoyed all day long, any time, any place including working lunches, out on the golf course, after exercise, or in the evening at dinner. As an NA, it offers a great choice for those restricting their consumption of alcohol but love the great taste of beer. 

“CERIA products will allow us to sell into an independent market a product that retains flavors like the hops and malts found in a standard beer,” Burke said. Commercial Distributing President Mark Placek says, “Every day, retailers have more consumers looking for ‘better for you’ and ‘alcohol-free’ beverages to fit their lifestyle. Many of these consumers would still like to enjoy a craft beer, but don’t because of the alcohol or calorie count.  
“CERIA offers these retailers and ultimately the consumer a quality craft beer without the guilt or alcohol. Commercial Distributing currently does not have a product like this in our portfolio – CERIA checks all the boxes,” according to Placek.  

Jon Salois, VP of Sales for Atlas Distributing comments, “We are excited to partner with CERIA Brewing to launch the brewery’s great-tasting non-alcoholic craft beers in central Massachusetts.”  Adds John McGinley, President of Wilson/McGinley, “We are thrilled to partner with CERIA Brewing Company and excited to expand our portfolio to include their unique product offerings in the ‘better for you space.’ 

“The NA beer category is on fire and CERIA’s new NA will play a major role in the category’s success.” 

According to Greg Miller, VP Business Development for CERIA Brewing Co., “The non-alcohol beer category increased 44.4% in sales through May 9 according to Nielsen reporting, which was one of its strongest weeks of the year. And if you look back just two years ago, NA beer represented about 0.5% of the total beer business and is projected to be 1-1.5% by 2025. We look forward to becoming the leader in this strong performing category that has a very bright future ahead of it.” Grainwave and Indiewave will be supported by POS displays, in-store sampling, a strong digital media and social media presence, and its dedicated website: www.na.ceriabrewing.com. 

CERIA Announces First Distributor Partnerships Grainwave NA Belgian-Style White Ale is a refreshing, medium-bodied Belgian-Style White Ale brewed with blood orange peel and coriander, with less than 0.5% ABV, and contains only 77 calories. Indiewave NA West Coast IPA is a flavorful IPA that perfectly balances Cascade, Citra, and Amarillo hops with light caramel malts for a smooth citrusy character, and contains less than 0.5% ABV and 99 calories.
