You know the old adage, “No news is good news” – well, respectfully, we disagree. At PicoBrew, we actually think good news is good news! Which is why we’re so thrilled about all the positive press we’ve received lately – heck, when Shaquille O’Neil stops by your CES 2017 booth, you know something big is happening.
During CES 2017, we had the honor of receiving our third consecutive CES Innovation Award. We believe strongly that we’re pushing forward the ways in which people make, share and drink craft beer and so to be recognized at CES for a third year in a row is really quite special.
Four-time NBA champion, Shaquille O’Neal, came by and talked with our CEO, Bill Mitchell, about the Pico and its ability to brew fresh craft beer. Shaq was so intrigued, he called his pal over to share in some brew. On the house, Big Fella!
And speaking of healthy guys, Men’s Health Magazine selected the Pico, which is the world’s first automated countertop home brewing appliance, as one of their CES 2017 Editor’s Picks.
Norman of the famed Tested.com stopped by our booth – er, funky van – for some tasty beer samples and to talk with our co-founder, Avi, about the attributes of the machine. For such an important conference, which includes the best in tech, we really felt the love at CES.
The love continued back at home in Seattle, where local NBC affiliate, KING 5, and their Evening Magazine show stopped by our tap room to try some beer made by Master Brewer, Annie Johnson. Their cameras also shined on one of our brewery partners, Lucky Envelope Brewing, whose Mosaic IPA PicoPak brews up crisp, fresh and florally delicious.
We have lots more to come and we are excited that we can share all our good news with you here with our new site, Brew Post, which will serve as the home for all things PicoBrew, including the latest beer news, brewing techniques, interviews, and features with our favorite craft beer partners. Cheers!
