Brewing your own beer at home is rewarding. It can also be a bit of a chore. The ArtBrew Automated Brewing System aims to make it easy. This all-in-one machine lets you use the built-in LCD or the companion app to choose the kind of beer you want to brew, then add water, malt, hops, yeast, and anything else the recipe calls for, whether it's sourced locally, online, or in a pre-configured Artpack. Once that's done, you simply hit start and the machine will control the mach, sterlization, and fermenting, letting you know when your beer is ready to drink and serving it straight from the built-in tap. Every ingredient has it's own container or compartment, so the process is hard to foul up, and your beer is ready in 1-3 weeks, time that you can use to decide what to make for your next batch.

You can also use it as a fancy holder for times you'd rather pour and drink your champagne, instead of wasting it, and its metal body looks great behind a bar, too. Available in gold, chrome or rose gold.
