Entrepreneurs: Aaron Walls and Brett Vegas
BeerMKR is a home brewing system that lets people brew craft beers at their homes using the brewing kits. The company was founded back in 2013, under the name BrewJacket. Aaron Walls and Brett Vegas are the founders of the company. According to them, this is “the world’s first automatic beer-brewing machine” and it can make over a gallon of craft beer in a week’s time.
BEERMKR can use barley, oats, and wheat, but you can also use rice, fruits, powdered sugars and syrups, dry as well as liquid yeast and pellet hops and allows precise temperature control throughout the beer-making process. During brewing, BEERMKR activates all of the enzymes present in the grains to break down starch and protein while achieving system-wide pasteurization.
The founders started a successful Kickstarter campaign that received nearly $400,000 in funding from 1,000 orders.
