We at MiniCorp are avid followers of Dieter Rams both as a person and his ideals. When we spotted this video we knew we had to share it. It gives a behind the scenes perspective of how Dieter operates and also how students of design aspire to him and his work.Read More

We do love Beer Design - When you think of it, it is a great opportunity to truly get your brand in the hands of the consumers. While the bottle shapes and glass effect are quite standard, creativity is flowing on the label and prints.Read More
The market for Craft Beer is exploding everywhere in the World and rightly so.Read More
We were on a visit to Dallas in the last weeks and were amazed at the choice, quality and popularity of the local craft beers. Basically every pub had their choice of crafts, with supermarkets promoting the local drinks like mad.
Some of our favourites:
Grapevine Craft Brewery
Est. April 2013
Grapevine Craft Brewery was only the second brewery on record to raise more than $60,000 through a crowd-funding campaign. Prior to getting into the craft beer business, Humble was a pastor for 15 years. He has hired Caton Orrell as head brewer, who previously worked at Boulevard Brewing Co. in Kansas City. They hope to open their new brewery in late December of 2014 but might have beer on taps by the end of October.
Four Corners Brewing Co.
Est. September 2012
Four Corners Brewing Co. is located just west of downtown Dallas, across the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge and in a large, open-air brewery. Head brewer John Sims worked at several brewpubs more than a decade ago during the first craft beer boom in Dallas. Local Buzz, Red's Roja, El Chingón, Block Party and Paletero can be found at more than 100 restaurants and bars in North Texas.
Rahr & Sons Brewing Co.
Est. July 2004
Rahr sometimes uses the tag line "the brand new beer with a 150-year history" as a token to founder Fritz Rahr's German brewer lineage. Rahr is distributed throughout much of Texas and in 2012 won a silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival for Iron Thistle. The Fort Worth brewery's full lineup includes five year-rounds and seven seasonal beers. Laid-back brewery tours that resemble community block parties helped arouse a loyal craft beer movement in North Texas.
Also the craft beer from The Independent Ale Works Co is awesome and hard to find...
Big thanks to the Dallas observer for the breweries description and details.
What a city. I've never been to Stockholm before. It's a city that welcomes you with open arms. Normally I find it quite difficult to find the real heart of a city without having a local to show me about.Read More
At MiniCorp, we love to travel. We find it completely inspiring to be submerged in another countries culture. The people, the places, the ways of living. It allows you to sit back and view the world in it's entirety again.Read More
