Hopsy Secures Seed Funding from Ironfire Ventures; Adds Jason Wang, Founder of Caviar, to Its Board


Hopsy, the fast-growing online marketplace and home delivery service for local craft beer, today announced that it closed a seed-funding round. The financing was led by VC firm Ironfire Ventures and includes investors from the Berkeley Angel Network. Jason Wang, Founder of Caviar and Venture Partner at Ironfire, has joined Hopsy’s board.

Albany, CA, June 18, 2016 --(PR.com)-- “This seed investment will allow us to scale our operations to meet demand, and to open new markets, starting with San Diego by the end of year," said Sebastien Tron, Hopsy’s co-founder and CEO. “Over the past few months, we’ve focused on collecting customer feedback and improving our service. Reception from our customers has been fantastic, and we now feel comfortable replicating our platform in other major craft beer markets."

Hopsy was launched in January 2016 as the first “brewery-to-table” online marketplace. Beer drinkers can go online and be delivered fresh craft beer from the best local breweries. Since its inception, Hopsy has delivered more than 10,000 growlers of beer from 12 local breweries to over 3,000 individual customers.

“The recent growth in craft beer led to a high fragmentation of the market, making it very challenging for most micro breweries to be distributed in traditional channels,” says Jason Wang, Founder of Caviar and Venture Partner at Ironfire Ventures, who has joined the board of Hopsy. "We are thrilled to partner with the Hopsy team, and to help them reinvent beer distribution."
