Summit Session IPA

The Brewery Collaboration

Let us share why we started with building a new way to enjoy the golden amber.

We love the taste of fresh craft beer! We love to discover new ingredients

We love to enjoy the satisfaction when the WoW factor hits you.


We see ourself as pioneers. As creators of the evolving future space of beer. And we love to share fresh craft beer with friends and family.


In our search to never stop exploring the world, we discovered tons of beautiful local fresh beers. Getting access to those beers are otherwise hard to find or not available in your city. And if a distributor would have a box, shipment always takes ages. So sharing and enjoying fresh local craft beer anytime anywhere became our mission.


This brought us to the magic B. The B is essential a homebrewing platform. MiniBrew lets you start with zero experience and brew high quality beers just from home. With our system, you’ve everything you need to brew, ferment and tap in a compact and affordable package. On the other hand we work with local craft breweries who make their recipes available to you.


To live our story, we’ve made a collaboration with Dois Corvos, one of the greatest craft brewer based in Lisbon. First of all, he brewed 3 distinguished beers that reflect the undiscovered freshness of Lisbon on the MiniBrew in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

After 2,5 weeks, they were tested live during a mystery tasting at BeerWestFestival in Amsterdam. This proves local beer can be brewed on the MiniBrew.

We took it even one step further. By holding a public voting which beer was the best, we brought the winning beer back to Lisbon and brewed a large batch to launch it at the Websummit. The Websummit is the  “Davos for geeks festival”. The festival choose us as one of the most promising startups.

With the launch of the Summit Session, we are encouraging you to connect and experience local and global taste.
