Technology and DIY culture have both become increasingly popular in recent years, but seldom have they been popularized together. A new gadget may change this for hipsters and techies alike: Brewie.

Brewie is a smartphone-connected device for homebrewing that will prove an asset for beginners and skilled brewmasters alike. The Wi-Fi connected, self-contained brewhouse is a dream for those who love tech and those who love beer: the device is controlled from an on-board touchscreen or your Wi-Fi connected computer, phone or tablet. Brewie will measure ingredients and water for you, and you can purchase “Pads” which have pre-portioned ingredients for specific recipes. While the device comes pre-programmed with 200 recipes, advanced brewers can input their own ingredients, measurements, and temperature, and wait for notifications on their phone to tell them when their beer is ready to taste.
Homebrewing can be a daunting process, and for those who have wanted to try their hand in DIY brews, Brewie simplifies every step along the way.
