The Best in Beer Tech

first_img Whether you prefer a lager, stout, IPA, porter, or just the plain ol’ foamy yellow stuff, there have been a lot of breakthroughs in beer in recent years. Crack open a cold one and join us as we take a look at some of the biggest!FizzicsIt’s hard to believe that it’s been three years since the original Fizzics popped up on Indiegogo. The countertop dispenser that claimed to “deliver an awesome fresh from the tap experience from any can, bottle or growler” raised over a quarter million bucks. It’s now an Amazon favorite, ringing up sales and four-star reviews.AdChoices广告Brewie B20S and Pico Brew Z (pictured)There have been a ton of countertop homebrewing devices introduced in the last four years. Several of them trade convenience for lockdown — you’re limited to using prepackaged ingredient kits. That isn’t the case with the Brewie B20S and the Pico Brew Z. You’re free to use whatever grains, hops, yeast and other ingredients (say, coriander and orange peel for a nice Belgian wit) you want. The machines themselves are pricey, at $1799 and $1999 respectively. For comparison’s sake, a big pot, a couple of 5-gallon pails, and the rest of the goodies you need to go manual will run you about $100.Double-Duty YeastYeast already plays a vital part in the brewing process, but there’s a team of researchers who think it’s capable of doing more. Berkley scientists have engineered yeast that can actually impart a hoppy flavor to beer. It dramatically reduces the need for actual hops and could help reduce the environmental impact of beermaking. That’s way cooler than just brewing beer that was scrounged from someone’s privates.The Belgian Beer PipelineThey brew a lot of beer over in Bruges at the De Halve Maan brewery and they’ve been doing it since the 1500s. There’s just one problem. The historic brewery is two miles away from the local bottling plant. Many a truck has mad that run through the Belgian town over the years. To lighten the load on the town’s centuries-old cobblestone streets, the company cooked up a crazy-sounding plan: run a two-mile-long beer pipeline. They brought in oil and gas industry vets to make it happen and the beer’s been flowing since 2016.Raspberry Pi, a Bicycle, and BeerPhysical activity is a good thing. Physical activity that rewards you with free beer is doubleplusgood. Using an indoor trainer, a Raspberry Pi and some custom software, the folks at Birra Menabrea rewarded cycling fans with a frosty beer if they could beat a virtual opponent up a virtual hill. I can’t get behind spinning ever since that episode of Kimmy Schmidt where she joins Tristafé’s class — but this thing? Sign me up!It’s true, I *DO* love beer!Your Face On Beer Foam!Well, it doesn’t have to beer your face. You can now put any image you want on the head of a beer, and it’s all thanks to the mad geniuses behind Ripples. This miraculous machine is like an inkjet printer, except it’s monochrome and uses a proprietary malt mixture instead of ink. Your imagination is the only limit here. Well, that and the bartender’s willingness to let you upload. What could possibly go wrong? Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
