Olivier and Bart started as a duo in September 2015 to pioneer and reshape the way we drink beer. From our inception, we grew into a team of 15 people. Our goal is to make a simple yet hi tech brewing solution through combining our expertise in areas such as design, prototyping, embedded engineering, sourcing, manufacturing and of course our love of making and drinking beer.
We are not alone!
Over the past months and years beer lovers from all over the world joined us on our global journey to democratize the beer space.
Whilst going global, we stayed true to our roots. Combining our own values of teamwork and a love for craftsmanship we are constantly evolving to make local craft beer available on a global scale.
We are excited about the future. Invest in state of the art beer brewing and help us inspire the brewers of tomorrow. Invest in the future of beer. Invest in MiniBrew.
MiniBrew is a lucrative company that fights for diversity of beers and easier global distribution with an all-in-one brewing and dispense solution.
The funds raised via the MiniBrew crowdfunding campaign will help us unlock important distribution & sales channels. The funds will also be invested in product development to lower the price of the machine, which will allow more beer lovers to become brewers and more breweries to distribute their beer globally. As we expand, we expect an increased spend on marketing and acquisition, and we plan to make the most of the current opportunities available to us in the craft beer and home brewing industry. As such, your investment will go towards investing in the brewers of tomorrow

Yes. We have a flexible exit strategy in place. We have identified multiple outcomes. Minibrew could be bought up by a bigger company, an IPO could happen or we could continue to grow naturally. As an investor, you are entitled to sell your shares to said a company or alternatively to existing shareholders (a secondary market offering ). As a company, we're fully focused on growth and achieving one of these milestones.
After the full investment amount is paid to the company, Crowdcube will issues shares electronically to your Crowdcube account. This will be approximately 2-3 weeks from the date the payment is made.

Good that you are asking. As Minibrew shareholder you receive discounts (starting from 5% up 33% on hardware and beer recipes. You also receive the option to claim a special founder edition. You also get the opportunity to get 1 free recipe of each beer that’s launched on the platform. That could mean unlimited beer.
That’s amazing. Welcome aboard the Minibrew community. All Crowdcube investors will receive details on how to claim shares and how to claim your discounts on minibrew.io after the campaign is complete and the cooling off period ends.
Investors capital is a risk. There is no guarantee that the business assumption will be made. Changes in circumstances may mean that the company fails to perform in line with its financials projections. Please make sure you read the disclaimer of the pitch deck carefully for further detail on the risks of investing.
We’ll be sad to see you go, but we understand people’s circumstances sometimes change. If you would like to cancel your investment please let Crowdcube know by emailing email@example.com. When the Minibrew campaign is active you can cancel anytime, but as soon the cooling off period starts, which is generally seven days, you have a final 7 days time to cancel your investment. After the cooling period payment will be processed.
Of course you can. As crowdfunding for equity is different than crowdfunding for a product you can submit an investment to get discounts. Make sure your information is identical and we link up your accounts on minibrew.io after the CrowdCube campaign closes.
Yes. However, the board will discuss each year how to apply to funds in the bank. For the first years, assumption is that the money will be re-invested to grow the company further rather than paying out dividends.
Equity crowdfunding is the process whereby people (i.e. the ‘crowd’) invest in an early-stage unlisted company in exchange for shares in that company. A shareholder has partial ownership of a company and is entitled to a share of its profits.
