The goal of Elite Brand USA is not to promote the trendy, run-of-the-mill brands. Elite is dedicated to bringing unique and soulful products to U.S. consumers. Our passion is for the fermented art. Reaching out to consumers that share a similar interest is what drives us. In doing so, we support independently owned wineries and breweries that also share our philosophy. A wine should transport you to the place and time where the grapes were grown. And beer should be historically honest and accurate.
Elite Brands USA was founded in 2002 by Joe Cekola. Joe has been involved in the beer and wine business for more than 20 years. In March 2006 James Van Der Kolk was appointed as National Sales Manager. He brought his love of honest beer and wine to Elite’s Michigan operation in 2001.
