After years of trials, development and precision engineering, Pinter revolutionised the beer industry in September 2020. The Pinter combines age-old craft brewing techniques with revolutionary new technology.
This precision-engineered device enables anyone to make 10 pints of quality Fresh Beer at home. To date, Pinter has attracted £7m of investment, valuing the company in excess of £40M. Investors behind the UK’s fastest growing brewery include Naked Wine’s founder (Rowan Gormley), Monzo founder (Tom Blomfield), creator of the Boots Advantage Card (Zoe Morgan) and a number of Ex-Diageo successes. Ex-Managing Director at Camden Town Brewery, Adam Keary, has also recently been appointed as Pinter’s new Managing Director.
The team behind the Pinter are not novices when it comes to starting a business from scratch and turning it into a success. Founder Ralph Broadbent and his fellow colleagues are behind ‘Y Not Festival’ one of the UK’s largest indie festivals, which started out as a garden party in Ralph’s parent’s backyard and became a 25,000-delegate attended festival with headliners including Noel Gallagher and Snoop Dogg. Despite Covid, in the nine months since launch, Pinter has achieved revenues in excess of £3.3 million, their team has grown from 25 to 211 employees and over 75% of their staff have been promoted internally.
Broadbent believes the Pinter will end an era of unsustainably sipping on cans and bottles of beer and usher in a new era of fresh thinking in the brewing industry. Compared to one-use beer products, the Pinter has 70% less packaging and has a 50% reduction of CO2 emissions, compared to traditional beer production methods. Since its launch, 1,528,500 pints have been brewed and almost 3,000,000 fewer beer cans have entered the waste stream.
The Pinter has gone on to be included in TIME Magazine’s Best Inventions of 2020, received glowing reviews from mainstream media and Pinter has won a World Cider Award for their Walthamstow Dark Fruit Cider plus multiple awards from the Global Beer & Cider Masters against many household names. Pinter’s success has placed them as the second largest ‘off trade’ brewery and it’s all thanks to people across the country brewing Fresh Beer in their kitchens
Ralph Broadbent, CEO of Pinter said, “I’m incredibly proud of how much the team at has achieved so far. The Pinter was something we’d talked about for a long time, so the speed at which its generated support, interest and genuine excitement was honestly overwhelming. We’ve become the second largest ‘off trade’ brewery due to the thousands of people who have been brewing Fresh Beer at home for the first time. That’s amazing”.
Adam Keary, Managing Director of Pinter added, “I’m really excited about joining Pinter. The business is building a platform that will change the way we interact with beer, built on a foundation of sustainability, innovation and freshness. Where Ralph & Alex have come in in such a short space of time, is nothing short of incredible and positions Pinter as one of the fastest growing businesses in the UK right now. I’m looking forward to getting started and building on the great foundation and growth potential of the business”.
