Fizzics

Fizzics has a crazy premise -- it aims to make your bottled beer taste more like its draft equivalent... using sound.

Draft beer from a bottle

We actually reviewed Fizzics back in October, and it kind of works.

Brewie

Brewie is an automatic beer brewer. Craft your recipe or pick one from the online database, throw in the right malts and hops, and it'll take care of the rest.

Two compartments for more automation

Brewie attaches to a hose and draws the water it needs on its own. Within a few hours, you'll have uncarbonated beer, or wort. You'll need a separate container with yeast for the last, longer step -- fermentation.

Kegsmarts

Kegsmarts finishes the job with temperature controlled sleeves to help your beer rest at the temperature it needs. Once that process is done, you can even use Kegsmarts to tap your beer.
