Ahem… this gadget can be your personal brewery


Nothing like brewing your own beer and swigging it all up. The only problem is brewing takes time, patience and lots of complicated steps that you can’t afford to get wrong. WilliamsWarn personal brewery takes care of most of these things by keeping the entire brewing process in a single unit. The machine carbonates the beer, keeps it at the correct temperature, sediments, purifies and pressurizes it so you get chilled bear when you tug at the built-in tap. Obviously, such luxury comes at a price, which will be $4500 for this one.
