Are normal home brewing kits typically boring and ugly? I don't really know, as I focus more on drinking beer than making beer (best to funnel all of your energy into a single channel and dominate it!) but whatever normal kits are, I'm pretty sure the Beer Tree is their superior. Designed by Freddie Paul as his final project for a BSc in Product Design from London South Bank University, this gravity-fed brewer is as much a table centerpiece as it is a functional chemist of craft ales.
Paul hopes his Beer Tree will keep brew master and brew kit more engaged with one another during the extended beer production process. Obviously it will also serve as the raddest thing ever to sit around and look at, both while sober and at 5 pints into enjoying the fruits of the Tree's labor.
The Beer Tree project is featured on Coroflot, an online meeting place, gallery, and career/job hunting resource for the design community. The company currently hosts over 2 million images and publishes over 150,000 new projects a month from design professionals and students worldwide. Spotlighted disciplines include industrial, fashion, 3D modeling, architecture, illustration, graphic, and UX.
