TWO fates collided when home-brewers and beer fanatics Aaron Grieser and Brian Bartusch met at a food festival in Spring of 2012. Realizing their mutual love of all things craft beer, the two joined forces to create Thailand’s first craft beer importing company, Beervana (read our feature about the company here).
And Beervana remains at the vanguard. “We are a mission driven company, and we have two missions,” says Aaron. “We are here to help lead a vibrant beer scene in Thailand, and to have the most fun doing it.”
Innovation is clearly part of Beervana’s secret sauce: from Thailand’s first brewing and beer judging courses, to experiments with a tech-centric self-pour draft beer wall, to the launch of Beervana’s new smartphone app ‘BEERME.’
“We don’t just want to do something new for Thailand, though” Aaron explains. “We want to make Thailand a hub for beer innovation in the world.”
