Most of us don’t follow Kickstarter, because there are only so many “roomy” jeans pitches and crappy iPhone wallet designs you can see before your sanity starts slipping. But it’s a compelling site in many, many ways, and one of the most compelling is to see what trends are arriving. And there’s one in particular that beer geeks and people who like good beer should know about.
Namely, the beer robot. Two projects, the Picobrew Zymatic and the BrewBot, were recently funded, and essentially, it takes brewing out of the realm of fussy chemistry and makes it as simple as making bread. While the two devices have different designs and different principles, they both have the same aim; making it simple for you to brew beer.
