The U-Bruu was inspired by a handful of San Diego entrepreneurs who love beer. In a city with nearly 200 craft breweries, the team wanted to enjoy several selections on-tap and devised the U-Bruu to be appreciated by any beer lover, be they a purist or mainstream drinker.
While the machine was originally manufactured to be a beer dispenser, the functionality evolved with high quality engineering and the team realized the potential of all the beverages that could be dispensed, almost by accident. As they began experimenting with the different liquids through the machine, they themselves were amazed with the high drink quality and the product’s benefits.
The sleek, modern design of the unit consolidates up to 5 beverage machines and makes it an ideal addition to any home or office for everyone from the beer lover to the coffee drinker to the health guru!
Our concept was to create a household device that brews your drinks for everyone in your household or office just how they like it.
The U-Bruu keeps carbonated drinks from going flat for WEEKS, instantly cools beverages from warm to cool drinking temperature instantly, and frees up space in your refrigerator and pantry by storing drinks in the machine!
The U-Bruu is not only a beer product, it can tap any beverage that is in a standard beer, wine, champange, growler, cold brew coffee and kombucha bottle from 12 to 64 oz, including sparkling wine and soda. Because of the nitrogen infusion, it will also create a creamy cold-brew coffee!
The inside of the unit can hold up to 12 standard size 12-22 oz bottles, 8 standard champagne bottles, and 4 64 oz growlers. The outside area of the machine can also be hooked up to an adapter (purchased separately) to accommodate additional bottles from 32oz to 64oz.
The product includes:
The U-Bruu provides a simplistic LCD touch screen to automatically choose the beverage you want to pour, and U-Bruu will automatically configure itself to pour from the correct bottles, gas and beverage with 3 easy steps:
1. Type of beverage
2. Type of Gas (Nitro or Co2)
3. Using bottles or growlers in the U-Bruu.
Because U-Bruu is the ONLY unit that INVERTS the bottles, it minimizes waste and ensures EVERY LAST DROP gets used.
U-Bruu is the average size of most toaster ovens, and will fit nicely on just about any counter top. The machine is manufactured using food grade stainless metal and plastic which can be easily removed and cleaned, as well as lines that are dishwasher safe and should be cleaned every 1-2 months. All that is needed are standard disposable Co2 and Nitro cartridges that can be purchased at most stores and online, including our website.
The U-Bruu is ideal for purists and modernists alike because it is ideal for keeping your favorite beverages from going flat for several weeks, as well as adding your personal flavor touches to make your own unique drink with our flavor packs.
The proprietary flavoring system currently features more than 30 flavors, with more coming down the pipeline. The flavorings are identical to what you find in current beers, coffees, sparkling water, soda and more. From fruity flavorings for mimosas to beer hop flavoring to additions for coffee, the U-Bruu dispenses bar-quality fresh, on-tap custom beverages in your own home.
The U-Bruu flavor system is proprietary to the company, and includes more than 30 flavors, up to 5 will fit on the machine at any given time. The flavors are an ideal enhancement to beer, coffee, soda, sparkling wine and sparkling water.
Many people may not realize that more than 99 percent of anything flavored you purchase contains artificial flavoring - beer, coffee, etc. So, why not brew your own Bruu at home how you like it?
Don't be intimidated by how to 'mix' your own drinks - we have a recipe book that shares more than 40 drink recipes to inspire you to begin on the U-Bruu journey!
Co2 The carbon dioxide keeps carbonated drinks fresh and on tap, including beer, sparkling wine, kombucha, soda, and more. The Co2 also keeps beverages preserved for several weeks, so it minimizes waste and eliminates throwing away half-full bottles.
The U-Bruu is the first at-home beverage dispenser on the market to introduce Nitrogen, which enhances beverages designed to be poured on Nitrogen by making them restaurant-quality creamy, such as cold brew coffee and beer.
We intend to have machines in stock before Thanksgiving 2017, so it will be ideal right in time for the holidays!
Our team has funded the concept, design and production of the prototypes for the U-Bruu. Through Kickstarter, we hope to raise the capital to send the product into mass production and distribution. Our goal is to be a household/office beverage dispenser that anyone can use.

Risks and challenges
Our concept aims to bring your favorite beverages to your home or office at the push of a button. The founders of U-Bruu are entrepreneurs who have started several companies, so they are familiar with the challenges of manufacturing and selling complex products and bringing them to market. While they have taken numerous steps to ensure checks and balances throughout their process, risks remain:
MANUFACTURING: We established this concept customized to what we want to have in our own homes, and have enhanced it throughout the production process to ensure it only gets better. Because the concept is new and there are many moving parts, we keep improving our prototype and making sure we are proud of the output.
FULFILLMENT: Shipping large, heavy packages is not to be taken lightly. Fortunately, we have experience in shipping such equipment, and will do numerous rounds of tests to ensure it ships appropriately.
