What We Stand For
About the Company
We've put more art into homebrewing.
In 2010, brothers Bill and Jim Mitchell's frustrations with homebrewing prompted the duo to create an entirely new beer-brewing process.
Jim, a food chemist and physicist, desired to incorporate more control in the process of beer brewing on a small scale. Bill, having been building software, boards, and appliances for decades, knew this was possible. The two joined forces with engineer Avi Geiger and formed PicoBrew.
A few years (and many pints of beer) later, the award-winning PicoBrew Zymatic was born. Zymatic improved the precision, repeatability, and overall quality of the beer-brewing experience and today is used by homebrewers and breweries all over the world. To date, the Zymatic has been awarded 3 patents, with over a dozen pending.
Following Zymatic, PicoBrew looked to the best part of any brewing exercise—enjoying the final product! From this research, KegSmarts was born to bring the same level of precision, repeatability and quality to both the beer fermenting and serving experience. Together, the combination of Zymatic and KegSmarts enable a true craft brewery experience without the hassle and expense of actually building a craft brewery.
PicoBrew's newest product, Pico, makes brewing beer at home so easy that anyone—even someone who has never brewed before—can create and enjoy amazing craft beer at home. With Pico, beer lovers can discover great craft beer from breweries around the world and brew it easily, customized to their taste, using quality ingredients.
Beer is our passion, and enjoying fresh beer you brewed yourself is an incredible experience. To every beer lover out there, we say thank you and cheers!
