About NitroBrew

About NitroBrew

Dr. Murthy Tata founded NitroBrew in 2014. As a process development specialist for Miller Brewing during the 1990s, he developed Creamy Draft for Leinenkugel. It was the brewery’s first nitro style beer, and it was delicious. Like all nitro style beers, however, it was unstable and unpredictable in transit. Years of experimentation later, Murthy developed NitroBrew as a way to make nitro beers easily and inexpensively at the point of service for consistent, beautiful and delicious results. NitroBrew was awarded its patent in 2015 for its unique and innovative beverage dispense technology.

We have expanded our product offering and services from the brewing industry to the coffee industry and to the consumer market with the NitroBrew inline infusers and the home kit.

You can infuse nitrogen into any beverage at the point of service, with our inline infusers. Eliminate the need for pressurized kegs and simplify nitro infusion with NitroBrew’s nitro infusers. It is a very simple and inexpensive way to make smooth and creamy nitro drinks either at a cafe/bar or from the comfort of your home. You can nitro beer, coffee, tea, root beer, fruit juices or any drink you fancy. NitroBrew systems can be found in cafes, bars, taprooms, breweries and R&D labs around the world. Our products provide great flexibility and need very little support and maintenance. Did we mention you can also choose to infuse one serving at a time with our Single serve systems? We offer sustainable products that are great for your pocket and the environment!

Murthy Tata, Ph.D.

Mad scientist. Inventor of NitroBrew

Meet our founder, Murthy. He is a serial inventor. NitroBrew, his latest invention, is the combination of his passion, adventure, experience, and science. He has decades of experience in brewing and biotech industries, with 5 patents and over 30 publications in prestigious scientific journals: his expertise spans diverse topics from materials science, biotechnology, and yes, beer! Over here, we call him the ‘Mad Scientist. 

According to Murthy, “beer is a fantastic mix of fundamental sciences, art and flavors.” Besides science and beer, he loves the outdoors. He is an avid rock climber, hiker, runner and a nature lover, and he hopes to circumnavigate the world in a sail boat some day! Until then he will continue to run both QuantiPerm, a company he founded in 2001, and NitroBrew, founded in 2014. His work ethic and passion for learning is an inspiration to many of us here!

Meet Nick who is on the advisory board at NitroBrew. Nick is originally from Netherlands, with a Ph.D. in Chemical Eng.. His distinguished career covers many areas of Brewing Research and Development, Innovation, and Engineering at Schiltz Brewing and then later at Miller Brewing company. His projects are varied and include brewery byproduct processing and economic analysis to improve brewing process efficiency and cost reduction and many others. He has done extensive research in flavor stability and new package development concepts like first commercial plastic beer bottle, nitrogenated widgets, self chilling cans etc.

Nick’s hobbies include long distance running, hiking mountains around Tuscon, AZ (his current winter residence). He loves to kayak in Wisconsin in the summer. He enjoys cooking new recipes and doing home remodeling in his spare time.

Here’s a funny anecdote. As an avid cross-country skier, Nick couldn’t pass up the opportunity to ski on a Milwaukee freeway on a snowy day. It so happened that the whole city was shut-down because of a Wisconsin snow storm. In recognition of his sportsmanship, the City of Milwaukee awarded him a ‘citation’.

Nick volunteers for Habitat for Humanity, Lapham peak state park and Chuhono state park. From Chem Eng, to running, to the love of outdoors, to beer, Murthy, our founder and Nick have a lot in common and have been friends for decades.
