YES: This Machine is the Keurig of Beer

synek

Hold onto your steins folks, the next best thing in beer is here. It’s called Synek, and it’s essentially a Keurig for your beer. No more growlers, bottles, and cases to lug to your next party. Just fill up the vacuum pack with any of your favorite beers, then dispense it from your kitchen counter, your backyard, or pretty much anywhere with an outlet.

The beauty of Synek is, unlike growlers or bottles, you can access any beer you want, as long as the beer maker is able to distribute it. You just fill up the bag, take it home, and get to drinking craft beer from your kitchen. Plus, the bags hold twice as much beer as a growler, doesn’t spoil, and, bonus points, has “the spirit of a falcon”.

Founder Steve Young is currently seeking crowdfunding via Kickstarter. Pre-orders for Synek will set you back $299, and will cost $349 once the prototype hits the market (they’ve already passed their Kickstarter goal). Beer cartridges are priced at about $1 each.

Sounds like a good idea to us. Time to get dranking.

It may just be a smaller version of a Kegerator but by the looks of things it’s more affordable and a more suitable size for personal/home use so I still see a point in it.
