RISE Brewing Co. brews nitro cold-brew coffee kegs and shelf stable cans for grocery stores, convenience stores, offices, bars/restaurants and cafes. RISE’s award-winning Flagship Original Black coffee is organic, non-GMO, non-dairy and zero calories (think a super light, refreshing stout beer meets iced coffee with a frothy head). An infusion of nitrogen gives RISE a distinctive roar when opened and a creamy cascade. To round out its portfolio of health-conscious and innovative drinks, the company introduced a citrus line that “tastes like tea, caffeinates like coffee,” and the world’s first USDA Certified Organic non-dairy and dairy canned lattes.
RISE's mission to create the best-tasting coffee imaginable began in 2014 when Jared McGovern began nitro cold brewing coffee in his apartment with his co-founders and childhood best friends, Grant Gyesky and Justin Weinstein. They set out to brew with only the freshest organic ingredients they could find and achieve incredible taste. In 2015 they went door to door in New York City, introducing New Yorkers to “Nitro Cold Brew Coffee” and now RISE sets out to share their coffee with the rest of the world.
CEO & Co-Founder
Founder and COO
Melissa is an energetic, operationally-minded, customer-centric, and quality-obsessed lover of excellent products. She was the last co-founder of the RISE Brewing Co. team, and has worn many hats as the company has grown: from optimizing the early production and delivery schedules, to bringing on new distributor partners, to developing a selling process and hiring a sales team, to building out the marketing discipline & team at RISE -- she is constantly asking "what's next" & is looking for the next problem to solve or process to fix.
