The future is now…
Soon, you’ll be able to offer craft beers like you offer guests coffee. By the pull of a lever, you’ll be able to have your hands on frothy, hoppy goodness. To this, I say: “Beer Me.”
Crowdsourced Beer with brewing at the touch of a button…
Synek’s new Draft System is poised on Kickstarter to raise over $250k. With just over $23k already raised, Synek is proving their concept through showcasing the ease of choosing your brew. The best part? Craft beers and breweries could easily reach more individuals by offering free Synek adapters, for any bar to use. In fact, the adapter is a neat gadget in itself.
Why is this cool?
Most microbreweries and smaller crafters can’t afford distribution and growlers only last for a few days. Synek’s bag system, will last for up to 30 days, making traveling with specialty craft brews much easier, (plus they store flat!) Plus, bottling systems can be $30k or more. Now breweries and individuals can use the adapter to fill bags, ship and store for a significant savings. Additionally, Synek is helping the brewing community by allowing their creations to reach farther, faster. I appreciate whenever a company pairs with small businesses to make innovation happen.
Will it work?
While smaller breweries and individuals that want a choice in beverages will love the convenience, they may not love the price. The system is on kickstarter for $299, while bags are going to cost around $15/each, (according to comments and founder Steve Jones in the Kickstarter campaign.) The bag idea is a good one, but some commentators feel the Synek team should have thought-through a greener design. While the bag is recyclable, it’s not refillable- but, Synek says that may be in the near future.
How does it work?
