At Firkin, we come to work every day because we want to make it easier for microbreweries to make everyone’s favorite beverage – beer. After meeting an industry expert (Ted) in one of his classes, Michael approached Andrew about addressing an issue that Ted was experiencing. Ted said one problem he was facing on a daily basis was that he had trouble keeping track of his kegs. After seeing this issue, Michael approached Andrew about creating a software to help microbreweries keep track of their kegs. After months of development and brainstorming over a few IPA’s – Firkin was created. Designed to help microbreweries keep track of their kegs, making it easier for them to focus on what they do best: making beer.
