Brilliant new invention brings the joy of fresh draft beer right to your home

There’s nothing better on a summer day than getting a nice cold beer fresh from the tap. However, you’ve traditionally had to go to a bar or restaurant to get fresh draft beer, which can be an expensive treat after a while. A new Kickstarter project called SYNEK wants to change this by giving you your own mini-tap that you can store right on your kitchen counter and use to pour yourself fresh beer whenever you like.

What makes SYNEK interesting is that it uses boxed wine-style bags that you fill up with your beer of choice and that you then install into your SYNEK dispenser, which will keep the beer just as cold as you want it. SYNEK says that its bags can hold 30 pounds per square inch and are “vacuum-sealed and UV protected to maintain quality for months.” In other words, if you get a bag filled up by your favorite brewer, you won’t have to drink it all right away.

SYNEK has already attracted some quality brewers that have pledged to fill up SYNEK bags with their beer, including Harpoon, Founders, Avery and Four Hands, so it looks like you’ll have a lot of different beers to choose from when SYNEK actually releases.

SYNEK says it’s projecting a ship date of early 2015 for its first bags, dispensers and taps. Right now it’s trying to raise $250,000 and it’s already reached $220,000 with 20 days to go.
