You’re Fucking Beautiful.

IMG_4106_editLove. It’s what the world needs more than anything, and we tried spreading some in DTLA last week.

Hugs. Flowers. Balloons. Telling Angelenos they’re fucking beautiful. Little things to brighten up people’s day was our strategy.IMG_4023_edit.jpgIMG_4080_editWe, as a company, strive to do good for the world and our community, and we implement that into every part of our business we can. From the drought-free California spring water we use for our product, to 5% of our profits being donated to charity every year.

We don’t do all of this purely for marketing purposes or to hop on a corporate trend, we do this because we feel it’s just the right thing to do, and we enjoy making the world just a little bit nicer.

What can you do today?IMG_4101_edit.jpgIMG_4048_edit.jpgIMG_4054_edit.jpgIMG_4070_edit_b&w.jpg

The Mini Is Here

IMG_2729In case you’ve missed the new mini that we have added to the family, here it is. This unassuming bottle is 100 ml of loft & bear goodness. Take it to the beach, take it on an airplane, heck, take it in the club. (who wants to pay $16 for a drink anyways)

You can find them for sale at these locations with more to come!

86’d

Four bartenders faced a mystery box of random ingredients including a local spirit. Each bartender used their skill and wit to create a unique drink that blended all the herbs, spices, and syrups together. It was a night of community and celebration as one walked away a winner, the rest were 86’d.
