Isaac Showaki knows first-hand how hard it is to build a successful business from the ground up. He started out with a love for beer after working as a consultant specializing in breweries for 8+ years. This left him with a dream to launch his own brewery. In 2012, he did just that and relocated from Mexico City to launch his first brewery in Chicago, IL. Isaac grew that brand, tripling volume every year, by working with seven contract breweries in the first 18 months. He soon discovered how hard it was to not have ownership and control of his own beer and rely on breweries who did not care about the success and quality of his brand. He encountered many stumbling blocks surrounding the poor aspect of contract brewed beer. There was not one contract brewery he worked with that could fulfill the vision he had for his brand and create the desired high-quality product for his new business.
Taking these lessons to heart, Octopi was born with one simple goal: To be the gold-standard in beverage co-packing. As President, Isaac brings to Octopi his prior experience in consulting, brewery management and most importantly his extensive knowledge of co-packing. Isaac is excited to offer a variety of services to his clients but most importantly making really great beverages.
