Last year, we delivered two beta batches of the MiniBrew machine to customers. These beta consumers have shared a tremendous amount of good feedback.
Based on their input, we’ve tweaked a few components to improve the user experience. On the growler head, we changed the bajonet connection to a thread connection. This makes it easier to close the keg. We've also made the wooden gap at the back larger, so you can add the water connection more easily.
The next assembly build will start in April, and the first shipments are expected to arrive mid June.
Once a production batch is released for shipment, containers will be shipped to Hong Kong Seafreight for administrative checks and custom clearance. After clearance, all containers are shipped to our main distribution center in the Netherlands. In the previous production round, we ran a container test to understand how the boxes interact with different weather conditions, and we’re very happy about the results.
All customers with orders of the upcoming batch will be contacted shortly.
The mass production run is planned to be finished in late summer, after which we will be fulfilling the majority of the current orders.
For certain countries, such as the USA and Brazil, we need to optimise the MiniBrew machine to fit the countries’ voltage and certification needs. Of this specific model, we expect a delivery mid 2020.
