My name is Steve Chapman. With years of experience as a homebrewer living abroad, I realized I had the opportunity to bring stainless steel equipment to the US at a better price than anyone else. I collaborated with 5 friends and homebrewers to launch the company through a crowdfunded Kickstarter campaign. See a list of supporters here.
Now I work out of a small warehouse space in Portland, OR, distributing brewing equipment across the United States. Occasionally I will bring in help, but most of the time it's just me. That's how I am able to offer this gear at such a great price. Most companies still use an outdated and bloated business model. Several middle men take cuts along the way, significantly increasing the cost of production. I work with the manufacturer personally to bring the products directly to brewers, passing the savings on to you.
If you ever want to contact me for any reason, please send me a message through the Contact Us form. If you have any questions about the equipment or just want to chat about ideas for new innovations for gear, I'd be happy to have a conversation with you.
