Picobrewery

Oh man, this is cool: a benchtop brewery/brewing robot out of the US. Can I get one please? (Probably need to find our dream home first.)

Ah, beer – the great civiliser. As noted in the New York Times: Current theory has it that grain was first domesticated for food. But since the 1950s, many scholars have found circumstantial evidence that supports the idea that some early humans grew and stored grain for beer, even before they cultivated it for bread.
