Breww is built on a modern technology stack and is in constant development. We typically deploy updated versions of Breww multiple times a week and because Breww runs in the cloud, you don't need to install anything to get access to the latest developments. Check back on this page regularly to see what we've been working on and to make sure that you're taking advantage of everything Breww has to offer.

Vastly improved process for inviting new users to join your brewery in Breww. This saves both the inviter and the invitee time.
