Your Dreams Have Come True: Beer ‘Keurig’ Machine Created [VIDEO]
A St. Louis-based group has created a machine like a Keurig that dispenses something way more awesome than coffee: beer.
Founder Steve Young has found a way to vacuum-seal cartridges of your favorite brews to go into a tap machine, called SYNEK. A gallon of beer can be kept fresh for at least 30 days, according to Mashable.
The machine is pressurized using carbon dioxide, and you can adjust the temperature to your liking.
“It’s about giving the tools to the home and craft brewers to help spread their creation and make more money while doing it,” Young said. “The best beer deserves to reach the consumer in the freshest form possible.”
SYNEK is expected to come out in 2015. Pre-orders will be $299, but the price jumps to $349 when it comes on the market, with cartridges $2.99 each. SYNEK’s Kickstarter page will be posting updates on the release.
