Beer lovers, have we got an awesome guest for you!

In this episode, we were thrilled to be joined by Steve Young  from to talk about his companies revolutionary product!

Not everyone has the luxury of being able to walk into a room in their home and pouring their favorite draft beer. You need plenty of space along with plenty of money to make it into something to be truly proud of. And even if you are able to have a room for this, your selection is usually fairly limited.

Now imagine being able to walk into your kitchen and pouring an ice cold pint of your favorite beer, from virtually any brewer you can think of, at any time right there on your kitchen counter.

Sounds pretty sweet doesn't it?

Tune in as we learn more about the Synek Draft System from the man with the idea himself, Steve Young.
