Mr. Beer is all about making homebrewing easy and consistent. We want to help you take it to the next level. To help with this, we continue to add new malts, and introducing recipe formulations. We are not new to this as we were the first to have 800 number support and online chat. You could say that Mr. Beer was way ahead of its time when it came to small batch brewing! By mid 2000, Mr. Beer introduced an easier to use website, beer of the month club, and the introduction of cider. Again, well before today's cider craze!
After almost 20 years of strong growth and millions of kits sold the company was acquired by the Coopers Brewery from Australia in December of 2011. The Coopers Brewery is a family owned brewery with 150 years of experience behind them, and is the world's largest manufacturer of brewing malts and thus was born the world's # 1 home brewing powerhouse! Mr.Beer® brewers are now able to take advantage of a unique water extraction process that uses less heat which means that the malts took a huge leap in quality.
The original 550 gram cans of hopped and unhopped malt extracts have been replaced with 850 gram cans of all malt requiring no adjunct to make a case of high quality beer. The entire malt lineup was reviewed and crafted by the brewing geniuses at Coopers. These malts have been thoroughly revised and tweaked to meet Mr.Beer's high standards of quality, ease-of-use, and flavor.
We continue to serve our customers to have the easiest process to get you started in this homebrewing field.
