John Blichmann, a passionate homebrewer, identified a need for better brewing equipment and set out to fill that gap. What began as a small-scale operation has grown into a thriving business that serves the brewing community not just locally, but globally, spanning over 40 countries.
With over 25 years of homebrewing experience, John’s passion for designing quality equipment and his experience in product design, testing, manufacturing and service led him to “retire” as an engineering supervisor at Caterpillar so he could launch Blichmann Engineering and focus on designing the best brewing equipment.
Since 2001, the small business has had a solid focus on precise engineering, premium quality, unparalleled customer service and superior product value. You can say that brewing is a serious hobby of John’s, but designing equipment for brewing and winemaking is his true passion.
