Draft Cooler Lets You Enjoy A Professional Pour At Home

Draft Cooler Lets You Enjoy A Professional Pour At Home

SYNEK draft beer system lets you say goodbye to bottle and cans, and hello to tapping your favorite brew at home.

Coming home after a long day of work to an ice cold beer from the tap is the fantasy of many full-time working people around the world. Canned and bottled beers not only have a different taste, but also can be too costly for your favorite local brew to make. Growlers, as useful as they are, have an incredibly short self life. Enter the SYNEK Draft System, a new machine that allows you to pour your favorite beer at home.

The system is fairly simple to use. First, a user fills the provided cartridge with whatever beer they want from any pressurized system such as a holding tank, tap, or keg. Once they connect the SYNEK to an electrical outlet, users can adjust temperature and pressure to get the perfect pour. After that, all they need to do is grab a glass and enjoy.

This new machine has many advantages, but chief among them are its compact size. It’s about as heavy as a toaster without the cartridge and takes up about the same amount of room, making it perfect for small kitchens. The cartridge is also designed to keep the pressure and carbonation in, even when it’s not connected to the system itself. Still, the cartridges only last around a month, meaning they last longer than growlers but not as long as cans or bottles.

With two weeks left to go in the campaign, the SYNEK draft system has far exceeded their original goal, showing that beer lovers are excited by the idea of trading in their six-packs for more professional pours. While it may not be the most efficient way to bring your favorite beers into your home, it’s a lot easier and cheaper than building your own bar at home. A donation of $300 or more guarantees you your own SYNEK when they are released in Spring of 2015, so you can enjoy a fresh beer from the tap whenever you want.
