Warning: it costs an absolute sh*tload of money.

Craft beer fans, it’s time to get yourself acquainted with Brewie.

This magic box of dreams allows to brew your own beer from the comfort of your own home – and all it takes is the touch of a button.

Brewie is a fully-automated home beer brewer that’s launched on the back of successful crowdfunding campaigns.

The box does just about everything needed for the brewing process: mashing, sparging, boiling, hop addition and cooling.

Watch the Brewie craft beer box in action:

 

All you need to do to fire things up is throw in a bag of pre-prepared ingredients (called Brewie Pads), punch in your settings then leave it to brew.

Once the timer’s been set you can monitor its progress via PC, phone or tablet app, and make adjustments should you think it’s needed.

The bad news? Brewie doesn’t come cheap – it’s expensive… and by that we mean really expensive.

Brewie is available to pre-order for $1,849 (with $150 shipping as extra), or around £1,390 if you’re UK based. For that you get the machine, four 5 litre kegs a cleaning kid and a Brewie Pad.

Best start saving those coins… or maybe a trip to the pub is in order?
