GrinOn Industries CEO, Josh Springer is the inventor and founder of Bottoms Up Draught Beer Dispensing System, the first-ever dispenser that fills beverages through the bottom of the cup. The idea came to him in a daydream in early 2008 and a mere four days later a functioning prototype gleamed in his garage. History in draught beer dispensing was made.
The system immediately started selling itself and so GrinOn Industries was born (the name came from the fact that Josh always had a smile on his face – and who wouldn’t if you worked with beer all day)! Together with Mike Price, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer, they embarked on a glorious mission to revolutionize the beer dispensing industry.
And many carbonated bubbles and experiments later, their innovative genius meant Bottoms Up was being dispensed in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Austria, Caribbean, Colombia, Central America, Germany, Mexico, Southern Africa, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, United Kingdom and Ireland.
But apart from a funky looking dispensing system, what makes Bottoms up beneficial? The traditional method of pulling a pint takes between 16 and 20 seconds and often that culminates to long queues at busy venues as people wait for their drinks to be served.
