Welcome to the Hobby Beverage Equipment Company, proud makers of MiniBrew®. We are a US based, Family Owned Company. We ship all over the world with distributors in Canada, the UK and Australia. Small batch brewers such as Home Brewers, Brewpubs, Distillers, Home Wine Makers and Wineries are our primary market. More recently, our tanks are being used in research laboratories, medical facilities and even in the environmental sciences.

Our EZ Seal Weldless Stainless Steel Bulkheads are not only used on our tanks and fermenters, but have also found their way into large farming operations, maple syrup production facilities, as well as in the manufacturing of food grade restaurant equipment.

The least risky way to start home brewing or a brewery or brewpub is to buy small until your family, neighbors, brew club members and customers learn about your beer and like the taste. Once you make it and have more customers than you can imagine buying that fancy stainless steel ferment with the profits to reduce your risk. Don't spend all your money on a large fancy system up front. Don't do the Wolfgang Puck scenario!

Other than the Home Brewer, and Small Batch Commercial Breweries our Fermenters are in use by some of the Largest Wine and Beer makers in the USA. Brew Schools have also begun to use the MiniBrew line-up for all of the convenience reasons as well as to allow students the opportunity to begin with everything they needed, at a very reasonable price point.

Our Fermenters, Mash Tuns, Hot Liquid Tanks and the entire lineup of MiniBrew products are unique because they are made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE).

In 1997 we manufactured the first 60 degree conical bottom fermentor. We were the first and this was a challenge. They are less expensive than stainless steel, easy to clean, and use.

The process is an evolutionary one, and we constantly innovating and improving our products.

Entering our 21st year, MiniBrew will announce several different Upgrades, Modifications, and Attachments! Striving for quality in brewing, this will mark the 7th time we have improved upon our own product lineup. We are Proud of this and Proud to Keep You Brewing Award Winners.

We encourage you to contact with any questions you may have!


From All of Us at Mini, 

~Cheers & Happy Brewing~
