Craft beer made in your kitchen is now possible with Pico

Craft beer made in your kitchen is now possible with Pico

The beer brewing machine comes with pre-packaged ingredient kits that let you make a large number of beer varieties from breweries like "21st Amendment" and "Rogue Ales."

Last year, our colleagues at PCWorld reviewed the Zymatic, PicoBrew's first automatic beer brewing machine. This year, we got a chance to meet Zymatic's little brother, Pico, at IFA in Berlin. 

The Pico can brew 5 liters of beer in about two hours, though it takes a little less than a week on average before you can enjoy a cold one. The machine works with pre-packages ingredients that come in a biodegradable container. An online store lets beer lovers choose from craft beer recipes from breweries such as "21st Amendment" "Abita" and "Rogue Ales." Each pack of ingredients comes with an RFID tag that the machine scans to know which recipe it should follow. 

PicoBrew is currently shipping Pico units to its Kickstarter backers. You can pre-order the machine for $799. General shipping for the U.S. will begin October 1st and shipping will likely start in mid November for Europe.
