Started in 2005 as a homebrewing equipment manufacturer, COLDBREAK® has evolved. We still do the homebrew thing as an homage to our roots, but after a local Grand Rapids brewery asked us to build them a jockey box that didn’t suck, they’ve been our bread and butter since. The rest is history. Well, actually, we’re still writing it.

In barely a decade, we have to put ourselves in check daily—blown away that over 1,000 breweries and countless other beverage companies use #ColdbreakJockeyBoxes. Seriously, we lost count a couple of years ago. We recognize how fortunate we are, but that doesn’t mean we’re cool with ever allowing ourselves to get comfortable or complacent.

Today, we are a squad of six full-time employees including two Certified Cicerones®, a graphic designer, a couple of rad college students who hustle part-time, an exclusive partnership with a print shop who does our custom wrapping, a full behind-the-scenes admin team, and a few key consultants who help us manage our international and wholesaler relationships. All of them—all of us are here because we give a damn about you.

What’s in your glass is worth it to us. Even more so: your peace of mind knowing that you’ll get a perfect pour from our jockey boxes every.single.time.

Wanna know more? Drop us a line anytime or swing by our exhibitor booth at one of the many state guild trade shows throughout the year that we’re allied members of. We’re probably a little biased, but we think we’re a pretty good time. Don’t believe us? Ask to see our business cards. 

Let’s grab drinks. First round’s on us. The one after that’s on you. Okay, maybe we’ll expense that one, too.
