About this project

Bierbox crafts beer making kits and ships them to your doorstep. Each recipe is created by our award-winning homebrewer founders or are sourced from recipes submitted by fellow homebrewers. All recipes are obsessively tested in our brew lab so that you can focus on the fun and joy of making your own beer.

Each Bierbox is designed to create 5 gallons (that's ~48 bottles!) of delicious beer. 

How is a Bierbox beer making kit created?

Each season (every 3 months) we release a new recipe. Each Bierbox beer making kit includes the seasonal recipe and all the ingredients you need to make the recipe. If you are a brand new brewer we also offer an equipment kit add-on.

What’s in a Bierbox beer making kit? 

While the ingredients vary in every recipe, the core ingredients are the same:

Who is this for? 

Anyone!

Brewing is tons of fun! it’s a great way to spend the afternoon with friends and family, it’s an amazing creative outlet, and, most importantly, the end result is you drinking GLORIOUS BEER that YOU MADE!

 

Inspiration

Bierbox was a literal shower idea. One of the co-founders, Joey, was pondering why some of his friends and family didn’t homebrew. These were people who either used to homebrew and then stopped, or who seemingly would love making beer but never had.

The hypothesis that resulted from this questioning was that time, access, and know-how were the barriers to entry.

In response, a year ago, the Bierbox founding team was put together. Many recipes were created, two seasons of Bierboxes were shipped, and the original hypothesis has been proven as new and experienced homebrewers all over the country successfully made incredible beer using Bierbox.

In addition, we created Bierbox because we want to share our love of beermaking with you and get you brewing, Whether it’s your first time, or you have a pile of homebrewing gear gathering dust in the garage, we make it easy to get back in the groove and make delicious beer you can enjoy yourself and share with your family and friends.

Risks and challenges

We have already proven our process through two successful seasonal shipments in the last year. The only real risk we have is if there is an issue acquiring the ingredients we need for our seasonal recipe shipping in December.
