Deep in the mountains of Dallas, Texas resided two alcohol enthusiasts, An and Chris. These two threw legendary parties back in their college days, but no party comes without the clean up behind it. With half empty liquor bottles and tons of mixers for the clean up, they felt like it would be a waste of alcohol if they just poured it down the sink. So, Chris, being a seasoned veteran of the hospitality industry, decided to take all of these bottles and turn them into delicious cocktails for dinner parties, weddings, and holding classes to teach people how to make these beverages. All the guests loved it when Chris bartended for these events, and An, having the entrepreneurial spirit in him, pitched an idea of them two opening a bar. Fast forward after doing the math, financing and opening a bar was way out of two college graduates budgets. So they lowered their expectations of a business, but still wanted to teach what Chris taught. This formed what we eventually called EastBevCo; a premium cocktail subscription box that emphasizes on all the ingredients Chris was comfortable with. These ingredients, mainly Asian spirits, juices and syrups, were Chris’ forte, as he worked and helped on many bar programs across Los Angeles that utilized these ingredients (Peking Tavern, Gyu-Kaku, Sushi Roku, to name a few). Through many trials and tribulations, many different renditions and lessons (our first name idea was Mix-o-Asia), we formed this subscription box with two goals in mind:
1. To educate our guests of the drinking culture, cocktail scene, spirits, and ingredients used in Asian countries such as Taiwan, China, Japan, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Korea, and whatever other East Asian country we have not personally visited yet.
2. Pay homage to our heritages by continuing the values we grew up with: loyalty, determination, and throwing kick ass parties
We hope our guests are able to instill these values in their next party or gathering, as well as bringing along our box to the table. We can guarantee it’ll be a one of a kind gift or activity for all your guests to partake in, we’ve googled there’s nobody that does what we do. If there is please let us know so we can crush our enemies, and grind their bones into dirt.
