Bridget Connelly, CEO of Luna Bay, shares her excitement to expand in Los Angeles with Classic Beverage of Southern California as their strategic partner, “Luna Bay is made for urban living and creating memories on the water. We are so thrilled to have a footprint in Los Angeles, where we always envisioned Luna Bay making waves. People care more about the ingredients they’re putting into their bodies, and we know our better-for-you beverage with a boozy bite is going to be the perfect addition to everyone’s drinking line-ups. Our partnership with Classic Beverage of Southern California helps us make this vision a reality.”
Luna Bay ambassador and LA local Jedidiah Jenkins cannot wait to finally share a booch with his neighbors and friends throughout the city.

We can finally drink our favorite boozy booch locally – which is an essential item for backyard bonfires.”

The Classic team is looking forward to Luna Bay becoming a must-have brand in our portfolio, and we are motivated to help them continue their explosive growth,” said Katy McBrady, VP Marketing at Classic Beverage of Southern California.
