We got hands on time with a trio of beer machines at CES 2016. Here's what they do and how they hope to add to your personal happy hour.

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

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

You insert your beer into the sealed compartment and put the hose into your bottle.

Pull the handle and it pours smoothly.

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.

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.

With Brewvana, PicoBrew's combined a couple of its previous machines, and it'll brew your beer from start to finish.

The PicoBrew Pico takes care of the first couple of steps. It makes wort, similar to Brewie.

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.
