We love software; you love brewing. Let us help you focus on what you love.
That is why we started BrewStream. Software Crafted for the Craft Brewing Industry.
The BrewStream team has been in the software consulting business for over thirty years now. We love software. We love how it works and what it does for people, businesses and the world. Alas, in the consulting business you never get to refine – craft – love a software project to its finish.
We love beer too! Moreover, we have an appreciation for the people in the micro brewing biz and the hard work they put into it. They are always friendly, love their business and excited to see their product through to the glass – or growler, keg or can.
So, we decided to bring our and your love together and make something cool happen. It gives us an opportunity to do what we love – and do it in the spirit of your industry. We are looking forward to meeting some awesome people and solving some interesting problems.
Our ultimate goal – to let you focus on what you love.
Kimberly Cox – Head Brewmaster
Kimberly loves beer, and better yet Kimberly loves people. She spent over 20 years in the cosmetology world running her own Salon as well as helping other Salon’s get it right. Being of service to people is the key, and that’s what she brings to BrewStream.
Jeffrey Cox – Software Brewmaster – Founder and BrewStream Architect
Jeffrey has been in software, technology and business consulting for over 30 years. Starting as a programmer and a database geek in middle school; Jeffrey loves technology. Inspired by his entrepreneurial dad, he loved and grew up growing businesses. His favorite thing, besides beer (lol), is helping others. “I thrive on building deep, trusting relationships, which allows me to help people make sense of complex things, like technology, and move forward.”
Born and raised in New Mexico, Jeffrey lives in his adopted home state of Arizona (a cool state in itself) with his amazing (!) wife (see above) and son – focusing on Faith, family, life, BrewStream and his daughters – who are crushing it in college.
