It’s been an incredible month for us. Three different perks are completely sold out. The community is growing and we’ve done more than 30 brew tests with our beta customers and some backers who happen to be in the neighborhood. You're always welcome to swing by and brew beer with us :) :)
Today's update is about:
- Brew tests
- Timelapse of a brew session
- Partnerships with brewers
- Growing Indiegogo community
- More kegs is variety
- CES 2017
BREWING BEER WITH CUSTOMERS
Our mission is to create the world’s best beer system and platform around it. To accomplish this, we’ve done multiple brew tests with customers who have all kind of different backgrounds. This makes it more interesting for us. We can learn how people use the machine and which parts we should improve. We’re grateful for anyone who is helping us and sharing their enthusiasm.
A 3 HOUR BREW SESSION IN 30 SECONDS
NEW BREWERS JOINED OUR PLATFORM
On the trading side, we’re continuing to close partnerships with breweries around the world to get their recipes in the database so you can brew their recipes. Our goal is to get independent, unique and progressive breweries who share the vision of global craft. Moving forward, we’ve closed a deal with Dutch microbrewery “De Prael”, Ramses Bier and De Leckere and we're setting up the first step to US microbreweries, such as BaseCamp and Gigantic Brewing Company. Every day new breweries are lining up to join our platform. This is great news for everybody. We're extremely grateful for having three new high valuable brewers on board.
INDIEGOGO COMMUNITY IS GROWING TO 300+
With the amazing support that you've given us, we're going to make the Minibrew dream a reality. Every day, we're happy to see more people are backing us at Indiegogo. At the moment, there are over 300 people that joined the community.
It doesn't stop here. Giving is as good as getting. For each friend you will refer and get’s a MiniBrew, you can earn $75 cash back. There are a few backers who are very active on this point and only pay, for example, $399 for their machine. This makes the program very valuable. Sharing delivers a huge payout. If there are questions regarding how to find your unique referral ID, please sent a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
MORE KEGS MEANS MORE VARIETY
With MiniBrew, you’ve got everything you need to brew, ferment and tap in a compact and affordable package. With one MiniBrew, you can use multiple kegs to keep the beer flowing. Interest in an extra Keg, get your for $249 on Indiegogo.
After many enginering hours, we've solved our power cable issue and testing a new power wall adapter that handles 350+ hours in one stint. That's enough to handle fermenting, for example a dark stout beer in two weeks. Exciting about the results. Soon more to tell.
PRESENTING AT WORLD STAGE: CES 2017
After a year of hard working, CES has selected us to showcase MiniBrew. CES, also known as the Consumer Electronics Show, is an internationally renowned electronics and technology trade show. If you're building hardware like us, this is the place to showcase it. We're presenting MiniBrew At Eureka Park, the flagship startup destination of CES, from January 5th till 8th 2017 in Las Vegas.
We've a lot of news to share: investments news, manufacturing updates and we will bring fresh brewed beer as well the machine. So if you’re going to CES as well, hit reply to this email, so we can arrange a time to meet.
