GrinOn Industries CEO, Josh Springer is the inventor and founder of Bottoms Up Draft Beer Dispensing System; the first-ever draft beer dispenser that fills beverages through the bottom of the cup. The idea came to him in a day dream in early 2008 on the west coast in Washington State. Just four days later he had a functioning prototype in his garage and the rest is history.
The system immediately started selling itself and so he began GrinOn Industries; the name coming from the fact that Josh always has a smile on his face. GrinOn Industries started growing with the addition of Mike Price, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer and Josh and Mike set out to revolutionize the beer dispensing industry.
After some careful strategizing, GrinOn industries relocated to a 26,000+ square foot warehouse in Indianapolis, Indiana in 2011. This allowed GrinOn Industries to be more centrally located for logistics and distribution and ultimately allowing the company to grow at such a rapid rate. Not only has GrinOn Industries mastered the commercial Bottoms Up dispenser but we have also developed a line of add-on products to enhance the consumer experience from personalized magnets, tap handle displays, empty keg detectors and much more in the works. Recently GrinOn Industries released an in-home unit for the public so that everyone can now enjoy the great benefits the Bottoms Up System has to offer.
The company's relentless determination has enabled it to supply products all over North America and create a partnership with the world's largest brewer, Anheuser-Busch InBev.

Josh’s first prototype of the original Bottoms Up Draft Beer Dispensing System is still functional and located at GrinOn's headquarters today!
Always remember; Keep your GrinOn and Bottoms Up!
