Synek Draft System Gear Patrol Synek Draft System
The future of beer drinking may very well be here if the creators of Synek have it their way–their crowd sourced at-home draft system has already met it’s Kickstarter goal. The innovation comes from the way the beer is packaged–in cartridges that are 128oz (that’s about 11 beers) in size, that can withstand up to 30 PSI. These cartridges make storage and shipment of beer easier and safer, meaning that even the smallest, most obscure brewery can fill up a cartridge and ship it out. More than 700 breweries have agreed to start packaging beer in Synek’s cartiges, meaning that beer lovers will be able to try some of the brews they’ve been longing for. syneksystem.com ()

the World Cup is an aberration. Soccer fans aren’t privileged to such an event every other month. It’s every fours years. After the final on July 13, players will travel back to their respective clubs (a “club” refers to a team and its organization), but what’ll we — the masses of newly converted football fans, spoiled by perpetual matches — do? Do we fall back under the veil of American ignorance, pretending it’s a second-tier sport? No. Watch the MLS? Not just yet. Instead, we’ll follow the world’s best players back to Europe. Here are the basics, and how to watch. Read the Story
