Big House Beans believes in birthing potential through highlighting diversity. To them, every person is different, but we all have a purpose. By sourcing unique coffees to keep the spectrum wide, they allow for each one to flourish in its own way.

The goal of Big House Beans is to empower individuals through unconditional love and second chances, and to caffeinate and embrace our community through every bag of coffee – from the bloom to the last sip. For them, it is #morethanjustcoffee.
UBI-IND, a denim brand established in 1999, was created by Ulrich "Ubi" Simpson. Under his vision, a comfortable jean turned to a denim lifestyle. They keep traditional techniques alive, innovating in fabrics, garment development, and manufacturing to achieve the gold standard in product excellence.
They also support the American manufacturing scene by working exclusively with leading American manufacturers to ensure premium quality. Their products are made from White Oak Cone Denim, sourcing from the longest running cotton mill in America; the Blue River laundry, a leader in sustainable waterless and laser technology; and the YKK USA, which gives their products secure two-prong tacks and hand pressed rivets. UBI-IND puts the America back in all-American jeans.
Harmonic Brewing is a small-batch brewery crafting balanced ales for enjoyment at their taproom, in to-go growlers, and on draft at local drinking establishments. They have a brewery and tap room in the Dopatch district of San Francisco, which is home to the American Industrial Center and hundreds of artists, bakers, and other artisanal producers. As a result, Harmonic Brewing takes local manufacturing to the craft beer scene thanks to owners Ed Gobbo and Jon Verna.
