888 Lucky Beer Press Conference in Tokyo, Japan
In the summer of 1981, Mr. Pierre-Richard Augustin, originally from Les Cayes, Haiti, the brand owner of 888 Lucky IPA, 888 Pilsner and 888 Stout, felt very "Lucky" when he landed at JFK Airport on a flight from Paris, France where he went to school at College Eugene DeLacroix, Paris 15, France.
Mr. Augustin left his homeland at a young age of 12 to attend school in Paris, France. Then, Mr. Augustin attended Abraham Lincoln High School in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York and John Bowne High School in Flushing, Queens, New York.
Then he moved to Boston, Massachusetts where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in Political Science from Salem State University, Salem, Massachusetts, a Master of Public Administration (MPA) from Suffolk University and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from University of Massachusetts Lowell.
34 years later, Mr. Augustin went back to Brooklyn, New York where his American journey had begun to launch his first-ever tasting of his crafts beers, 888 Lucky Beer, made from a secret formula that he developed as a homebrewer from Washington D.C.

"Mr. Augustin...Your actions are that of a truly great American who still believes there is justice. My older son was a lifetime law enforcement officer and in the military. My younger son was a firefighter/paramedic his entire career. They both fervently believed in standing up for those who cannot defend or protect themselves. Were they here, they would be honored to know you. - Sincerely, Barbara”
