A last minute techie gift for beer lovers: Fizzics

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, December 23, 2015

A last minute techie gift for beer lovers.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    It’s a company that was one of this year’s big success stories on the crowdfunding site Indiegogo.    Fizzics makes a cool gadget that brings that on tap taste to any kind of beer right in your home.    CEO and Co-Founder Philip Petracca….

“And it’s very simple.   You just take any size can, any size bottle or up to a 64 ounce growler and you place it into the system.  And you just shut the lid, it runs off four double A batteries, and when you pull the handle forward it will dispense beer at a controlled rate.  And we do so to maintain as much carbonation in the body of the beer and then when you push the handle in the backwards position, we create the head of the bee, the foam.  And we perfected density, stability and texture of the beer.”

For now,  Fizzics….f I z z I c s….is available at Brookstone stores.   Look for wider availability in the coming year.    You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
