A good German loves a fresh cold beer from the tap, but there is a new way to get your beer. Check out this video for an awesome new way to pour beer…it is like a reversed tap.
Popular Science took a closer look at this machine and served up a short description on how it works…
The cup features a small hole at the bottom, covered up by a circular magnet. Pressurized beer lifts the magnet up, filling the cup until the weight of the beer on top of the magnet pushes it back down, sealing the bottom. This system is not only faster (serving 56 draft beers in a minute), but minimizes spilling, to the joy of sticky-footed concert-goers everywhere.
I can see this being very useful during some of the heavily trafficked German American events like Chicago’s German American Day. All it needs is some good German beer.
