Meet our new friend: Brewski. He is half beer, half robot… all fun. The Brewski Bot travels to everything from weddings to office parties to charity events and serves guests delicious beer along the way! We had an absolute blast hanging with him + his team at The Big Fake Wedding Seattle and we can’t wait to share more about this unique vendor with you in today’s Vendor Highlight.
“The Brewski Bot was the life of the party! It is so incredibly innovative and unlike anything we’ve ever seen before! The Brewski Bot rolled around the dance floor all night making sure no one was empty handed! This is something that will leave your guests talking for years to come.”
– The Big Fake Wedding Seattle Team
Tell us a little bit about the story of Brewski Bot.
My husband, Mike, started building Brewski Bot because of his interest in robots, beer, and Star Wars (which is where the inspiration for his aesthetic came from.) After about 4 months of building, Brewski attended his first “beer bash” where he became an instant hit. Immediately following, requests started coming in for his appearance at other events. He graduated from office parties to birthdays to charity events pretty quickly and only recently has fallen in love with weddings.
What is the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is being a part of celebrations. Mike and I always feel blessed when someone wants us to be a part of their birthday, convention, or wedding. Brewski Bot has allowed us to be present at some very touching and extremely fun events.
Describe a highlight or pivotal moment in your career.
A pivotal moment with Brewski Bot was when we took him to Steamposium last year. Finding the right audience for our bot made it obvious how special he was. Not only did the public love him but vendors, the organizers of the event, and the genre experts couldn’t get enough of him. It gave us the confidence to grow a hobby into a business. We also learned that Brewski LOVES to dance!
What advice would you give to aspiring small business owners?
My advice for small business owners is to have an easy-to-use and professional looking website. Most people will rule out a vendor if their website looks sloppy or disorganized.
What is your favorite part of The Big Fake Wedding experience?
Our favorite part of The Big Fake Wedding was being a part of a real vow renewal. When the couple shared their story I had a hard time not crying. All the vendors were able to put their best work forward knowing that it was for a lovely couple. Most of the vendors we met work in this field because they want to help couples. It leant an authenticity to the event that traditional wedding shows lack. It allowed us the opportunity to connect with couples in the environment we would normally see them instead of trying to hawk our wares.
