This Magic Device Turns You Into a Homebrewer

Making Fresh IPA, Lager, and Cider In 4-7 Days At Your Place

Leaving the house?


Still, there are times when you need supplies that are crucial to your survival.

Like beer.

Now you have Pinter, which instantly transforms you into a homebrewer making fresh beer at your place in 4-7 days, providing you with a steady supply of crisp lagers and hoppy ales that you can honestly tell everyone you made yourself. 

Without going anywhere.

Fermenting. Conditioning. Pouring. This thing does all of those complicated, science-y things from the confines of a fridge-friendly keg and a supply of different mixes called "fresh presses." Those contain all the brewing materials you need to make super fresh beer, be they lagers, IPAs, or fruit ciders. They've already been malted, mashed, blended, and kilned, so you don't have to. Which is great, since you've been trying to give up kilning.

You take those fresh presses and pour them into Pinter's keg. And that's really it. You'll stick it in the fridge and forget about it for four-to-seven days. At which point, you take it out and it will be full of 12 pints of fresh beer. The Pinter is ready to tap, using pub-level technology that adjusts pressure for a perfect pint. Damn, you're good.

The homebrewed beer that pours out will be fresher than any you get at a store. Without any bottles to buy or recycle. And when you and your friends are finished, you'll simply refill it and do it all over again.

Shortly before the sale to Anheuser-Busch for $100 million.
