Holiday season is over!

MiniBrew is back with some fresh hoppy news!


Topics

  1. The final MiniBrew development stage!

  2. Movie time - How it works

  3. MiniBrew at BierWest 2016 in Amsterdam

1. MAKE THE MOST OUT OF YOUR SPACE - MiniBrew gets compact

We’d like to share you some exciting pictures from our engineering team. Our assembly line is now buzzing and the first series of beta machines of our IndieGoGo backers are ready. We’re stoked to share that we’ve won 10 cm in height from our last prototype. A huge step forward!!


The machine is now smaller, lighter, easier in use - we reached the final stage.  Even better, after more than 500 successful brew-sessions - It's time for mass production! And we can guarantee to make it even smaller.

2. NEW IN CINEMAS, now showing - "How MiniBrew Works"

By now, I bet you’re wondering how does the machine work. Great news! Our Co-founder Bart will demonstrate how EASY BREWING PERFECTION looks like. So you have no reason for hesitating anymore!

3. YOU DECIDE, WE BREW - Mystery tasting in Amsterdam

MiniBrew was part of the BierWest Speciaalbier Festival in Amsterdam last weekend! It was not just a normal beer festival - there was an world premiere - the first time ever that the MiniBrew Cave was presented in public to share our mission to bring local craft beer globally available!


For everyone that could not attend on the weekend - here is our beauty!

The interest was huge!

A little hint - check out the MiniBrew on the right side

And all of you that saw a little machine on the right side of the Cave were right! - The MiniBrew Beta made its first public appearance during a beer festival - feel it, taste it, love it.


During the day people could come and experience the taste of several beers brewed on the MiniBrew - first of all we shared our famous beers HopRise and The Malty Warrior with the crowd - for the last one we think it's even better than Guinness ;) 


Moreover we had an awesome “Mysterious” beer tasting experience - where our community was called to action.


What was the reason for this Mysterious beer tasting you may ask?


A few weeks ago the owner of Dois Corvos a Portuguese brewer was here in Utrecht to brew with our brewmaster Ko, three distinguished beers combining the local taste experience of Portugal and Holland.

Thats how teamwork looks like

Making local taste globally available is the mission, thus “Mystery” 1,2 and 3 were born!

Now the best beer was chosen at our beer tasting event by you last weekend in Amsterdam.


After an interesting tasting and a not so close decision, we are proud to share the result with you and the winner chosen by you is….


Mystery 1 - Stay tuned...more details soon


Congratulations and thank you all for your participation!


This was the first step, on our trip to this year's Web Summit 2016 in Lisbon -  and you have been a part of it! You’ve helped us to choose the beer we are going to craft in Portugal and serve during the Web Summit on several events in the beginning of November.

We hope you had a such a great time as we did during BierWest 2016. Thanks a lot you for the amazing interest and of course feedback we got from you! One thing we can tell - we could welcome some new MiniBrew’lers into our family ;) Whooop 🍺🍺

Thank you again for coming and sharing your beer enthusiasm with us and stay tuned for more infos about the WebSummit.


As always for props, comments or anything else we are looking forward to be in contact with you ;)


Cheers

Learning to brew beer is just like learning how to drive a car: you can start with automatic and go the easy way, or you can start with manual and drive any car you want. Brewing all grain as opposed to brewing with extracts is much more beneficial for learning and will allow ...
