LG HomeBrew Is a Keurig for Beer

LG is a name best known for their TVs, smartphones, and other consumer electronics, but now the company has a machine that will make beer in your home. It’s like a Keurig, but for beer. Now we have your attention.

Earlier this month, LG announced a capsule-based craft beer system called HomeBrew. It’s a countertop system that aims to make brewing beer at home as simple as dropping single-use capsules into the machine and hitting the start button.

The machine has an optimized fermentation algorithm that “intelligently controls the fermenting process with precise temperature and pressure control”. This makes sure that it brews perfectly every single time. There’s also no mess thanks to a self-cleaning feature automatically sanitizes key components with hot water to make sure that everything is hygienic.

It’s almost as easy as making coffee, though the fermentation process means it won’t be nearly as fast. It will take about two weeks or so depending on the beer type. Five beers will be offered initially, including a hoppy American IPA, a golden American Pale Ale, a full-bodied English Stout, a zesty Belgian-style Witbier and a dry Czech Pilsner.

LG will be showing off the HomeBrew during CES 2019. Pricing and a release date have yet to be announced.
