About Us

We’re Ugly Robe, LLC. A small scale, San Diego based company.

I'm William Hess, owner, operator and long time beer enthusiast.   I have spent a lot of time with a pint glass in hand.
The idea for the Pintstein started off very simply.  It became a reason to explore new technology and enter the manufacturing industry.  
Starting out with a CNC machine and 3D printers, allowed us to prototype the Pintstein in the garage.  Soon we will be looking at growing and getting the Pintstein made on a larger scale.
