Mike Langone: I first discovered brewing five years ago. It was love at first brew. However, the brewing process left much to be desired. It was a ungainly process involving ugly plastic fermenters, a messy kitchen and thoroughly disgruntled roommates. I figured there had to be a better way to brew, one that would look at home in any environment and celebrate the process rather than hide it. In January 2013 I designed the first Box Brew Kit (then called Hopbox). It was everything I wanted a brewing kit to be: stylish, portable, and accessible. I wanted to inspire people to brew, to experiment with new recipes, to feel the satisfaction that comes with sharing something you have made with family and friends.
Matt Gorman: Mike and I have been best friends since kindergarten. We developed a shared love of beer over the years, so when he got into homebrewing I naturally reaped the rewards of free beer. After a few years of mooching, I finally decided to try my hand at brewing. My first brew was done with a Box Brew Kit, and I immediately fell in love with both the process and the product. I have always had a passion for entrepreneurial pursuits, and I have never been more excited than I am about this project. BBK turned me into a novice yet enthusiastic homebrewer my first session, and I am eager to share my experience.
