An espresso in the morning fresh from the machine, and a beer at night directly from the draft; all from the comfort of your own home. That is the dream.
This is the idea of Steve Young, and his new creation, called Synek; is essentially a beer draft for your home. The Kickstarter page said:
“It is a draft system that serves any beer, fresh from the tap, anywhere you want it. Imagine, for a moment, that you could have access to every beer in the world fresh from the tap. Your favourite local brewery, your best friend’s home brew, or an international one, all available to you wherever and whenever you want it.”
Synek is a portable machine that dispenses cold beer on demand, like a tap, but without the need for a keg, bottles, growlers, or a kegerator.
To drink the beer, you just put the pouch in the machine, and pull the beer from the tap.
Beer lovers can fill the Synek bag from any tap. The bag is vacuum-sealed and UV protected, and can maintain the quality of beer for months. The bag and the box are both recycled, so this machine is eco-friendly. Once the bag is filled, insert it into the dispenser (which looks a little like a toaster-sized coffee machine), and plug it into the electrical socket.
Finally fill a pint glass enjoy your beer!
