The WilliamsWarn® BrewMaster™, was launched in 2011 and is the miracle that beer drinkers have been praying for. After 5000 years of brewing, the technology finally exists to allow you to brew the perfect beer at home or at your workplace. Following the success of this product, the very cost effective BrewKeg50 was launched in 2016 which enables bars and restaurants to make their own beers and ciders on premise and dramatically increase their profitability, while producing their own brands for their customers.
In 2004, whilst Ian was working out of Denmark as an international brewing consultant and professional beer taster, he was challenged by his uncle (a frustrated homebrewer) to invent the worlds first personal brewery.
Ian discovered that 32% of all New Zealand males have tried and quit homebrewing while only 0.3% do it at any one time. So for every 1 person brewing there are 100 who have tried the hobby and stopped. Upon analysis, it was concluded there are 10 main reasons people quit homebrewing. The BrewMaster™ was developed to try and get these people back into the hobby by solving the issues they state they had.
The result is cold, perfectly carbonated, clear, professional quality beer made in 7 days, like a modern brewery. All official beer and cider styles can be made as well as the option to develop your own.
The high quality of the beer became evident for all to see in June 2012, when a WilliamsWarn brewer won Gold for his Pilsner at the Asia Beer Awards, with his 3rd batch in a WilliamsWarn, beating 45 full-scale breweries. It was the first time a homebrewer had ever beaten the big players. Read more about that win here.
Since 2013, the BrewMaster™ has been selling strongly as seen in the photo testimonials page.
And in 2016, a few weeks after its launch, the BrewKeg50 won the Champion of Innovation Award at the Fine Food NZ Awards, due to its ability to enable bars and restaurants to become their own breweries and increase their profits and create their own brand stories.
