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.
Bobby Gaglini: Back in 2012, my girlfriend purchased for me a 5-gallon homebrewing setup after I let her know I was interested in homebrewing. The kit ended up sitting in a corner in my bedroom for 10 months, gathering thick layer of dust and shame. It was too intimidating, too bulky, and too much for someone who knew virtually nothing about homebrewing. While I eventually broke open the box and started brewing, I always wished there was a stepping-stone to homebrewing. At Box Brew Kits, I'm proud to be part of just that -- a movement that helps break down the brewing process into something that's approachable, yet still gives the homebrewer the ability to learn.
