About MiniBrew

MiniBrew is a hardware-enabled beer e-commerce platform creating a more tasty and convenient brewing experience at home, the office and restaurants while eliminating glass bottles.

Why are we here?

The big brewing companies don’t inspire us anymore. It’s become a sea of sameness with no clear vision to the future. We tend to forget that the most iconic craft beers have been brewed in a garage or at home first, before they become widely available.

MiniBrew is here to bring back the optimism to help other create iconic beers. So it can stand for progress and passion to bring again. At MiniBrew, we believe in a world without barriers between people personal preference and technology. We believe in a future where every person can create a delicious beer.

Where MiniBrew is doing for beer what Dyson did for vacuums and what Nest did for homes. Rethinking technology and connectivity for better results.

Our Mission

Our mission is to make Brew It Yourself more fun and accessible so we are proud to share with friends and family the future of iconic beers.

Company history
