SYNEK's countertop draft system will soon put growlers on tap

And you won't have to wait as long to get one, either.

SYNEK's countertop draft beer system is one of many Kickstarter success stories. However, due to alcohol laws in states like North Carolina and Virginia, breweries and retailers couldn't fill the company's cartridges. In those two states (and others), containers must be rigid and hold 64 oz. max. SYNEK's first solution is a bag-like container that holds 128 oz. which meant eager drinkers in a few locales haven't been able to use the device. That's about to change, though, as the company is working on an adapter that will allow you to connect a glass growler to the compact draft system.

If you're sippin' suds on the regular, chances are you already have one of these from a brewery nearby, so this is a much more attractive option for many. There's a new version of the original cartridge bags too, with a pressure rating that's 50-percent higher. Perhaps best of all, you no longer have to pre-order the beer-serving appliances, so you can expect it to arrive faster. SYNEK promises $329 setup (or $399 bronze option) will keep those stouts and IPAs chilled and pressurized for 30 days or more, and this beer drinker is looking forward to testing that claim when the growler adapter arrives this spring.
