CUBA Beverage Company Announces the Hiring of Pioneering Microbrewery Executive

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 30, 2013) - CUBA Beverage Company (OTC Pink: CUBV) has announced the hiring of John B. Foley, a pioneer in the microbrewery business as their Vice President of Sales and Distribution and a member of their executive management team. Mr. Foley founded The Connecticut Brewing Co. in the late 1980s when there were only a handful of handcrafted beers competing nationally in this nascent beer market category. Connecticut Brewing produced the award-winning Nathan Hale Golden Lager. The product gained distribution throughout the Northeast and as far west as Chicago.

Mr. Foley also brings a strong Wall Street background to CUBA Beverage having worked for such prestigious firms as Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette, Barclays and Instinet. With the ground breaking CUBA Herbal Energy Juice ® gaining marked momentum in terms of sales and distribution in the Northeast and beyond, Alex Procopio CEO of CUBA Beverage stated, "We thought the timing was right to expand the management team with an executive with extensive beverage and Wall Street experience. John is known for his aggressive management style and with CUBA Herbal Energy Juice ® gaining the reputation as a 'first in market product' that we think is going to disrupt the energy drink category. I think this will be a wonderful match of executive and product and we're excited to have John with us through this critical stage of CUBA's growth."
