Spike Brewing LLC was founded by Ben Caya, a 2012 graduate of University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. We’re proudly located in Milwaukee, WI; the beer capital of the U.S. Spike Brewing was started three years ago to make a few extra bucks for Ben’s weekend beer fund. It was a semi full-time job throughout college and now we’re supplying equipment for the brewing community full-time.
We've been in the home brewing business since 2009 when we started making small batches of keggles from beer kegs. As demand outgrew our supply of kegs we sourced a supplier for the high-quality kettles we now use. We are the only company that sanitary TIG welds couplers (for connecting valves, thermometers, etc.) and we do that right here in the USA. Most companies use weldless fittings which we believe is an inferior way to attach ball valves, thermometers and sight glasses, as this is cumbersome and creates a great deal of work while cleaning the kettle. Our kettles are bullet proof and will last a lifetime.
