The world of beer is populated by two very different denizens. The first love any beer, any time. They'll down such swill as Golden Anniversary, Utica Club and The Beast—beers that taste about the same right from the fridge or when found the next day half empty under a bumper pool table.
Second are those with a more discerning palate. They search out the best crafts and micros they can find—and have probably attempted brewing their own at some point. For this latter group, we offer a quintet of countertop appliances to help quench their thirst for draught-quality beer served conveniently right at home.
