THIS is what BeerBro is about:
UPDATE: International backers, please see FAQs for reduced shipping rates.
Sick of opening beers with flimsy keychains? Fed up with dealing with ridiculous corkscrew tools that treat opening the bottle like an afterthought? Plastic or cheap metal openers not man enough for your beer-drinking needs? Hate when you pop a beer and the cap falls to the floor?
Sounds like you need a BeerBro! A state of the art bottle opener that will last a lifetime, looks amazing, is fun to use, sticks on the fridge and catches multiple caps, and more!
You need an opener that can withstand the test of time. You need an opener that can open a frosty brew in the depths of hell. While climbing Mount Everest, who wants to deal with a cheap little keychain when you desperately yearn for a sip of hoppy goodness? When piloting an F15 through enemy territory, who has time to fumble around with a junky piece of plastic before being able to have a drink? I sure don't!
There’s too many contraptions that treat opening bottles as the gadget’s secondary purpose. Bottle opener on your shoe? Your wallet? Your keys? Bottle openers should focus on, um, OPENING BOTTLES. That’s what BeerBro can do for you. BeerBro is a BOTTLE OPENER that happens to be able to knock a rhinoceros unconscious. A BOTTLE OPENER that can withstand the heat of molten lava. A BOTTLE OPENER that can make your biceps look incredibly jacked whilst cracking open the most delicious of brews.
We're offering BeerBro at a great price, too! Other "high-end" bottle openers out there go for much more than BeerBro, and are not nearly as fun or of such high quality.
BeerBro is made of high-strength, durable materials. We've manufactured dozens of prototypes to optimize the hand-feel, torque, weight, and durability. The processes involved to make a BeerBro include precision 3-axis CNC machining, sand-blasting, anodizing, polishing, and hand assembly.
The BeerBro has an 6061-T6 aluminum frame, sports a stainless steel 304 insert, and rocks two neodymium cap-catching magnets.
BeerBro makes a great gift for any beer drinker in your life. Trust us – there’s nothing more satisfying than opening a beer with a BeerBro. It just feels right. The one opener that’ll make you say “ahhh” before the beer even hits your lips. Beer, the nectar of the gods, deserves to be unleashed upon the world in an appropriately epic fashion. And since we don’t have telekinetic Jedi mind powers yet, using the BeerBro is the next best thing.
An amazing present during the holiday season! Perfect birthday surprise for a buddy! Amazing gift for the groomsmen at your wedding! Great opener for your bar or home, all year long!
The purpose of this Kickstarter campaign is to fund our first manufacturing lot of BeerBro Bottle Openers. Dave and Mike created the BeerBro as a result of an insatiable appetite for innovation and entrepreneurship. The BeerBro Bottle Opener makes the timeless experience of sharing a beer with a friend that much better, and a successful campaign is our first step in bringing that experience to the world.
Risks and challenges
While we are very confident that BeerBro and the processes we have planned out will be successful, there are certain risks and challenges that we face. The two major challenges are (1) manufacturing quality, and (2) timely fulfillment.
To address the two major challenges, the BeerBro team has had samples manufactured by 5 different suppliers and has down-selected to 1 primary supplier and 1 secondary supplier. The design has been validated for manufacturability and we have tested and refined it with beta testers for over 9 months. We've researched manufacturing costs, shipping, and packaging; with your help, we are prepared to make BeerBro a reality and deliver it to you!
Product quality is our top priority as well as transparency to fulfillment of your amazing pledge to us. We will provide updates and do our best to deliver the best beer bottling opening experience to you as soon as possible!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
