New Beer Machine

We saw this video on Canada AM this morning and thought it was so cool that we just had to post it here for our readers to see.  We don’t drink much but this machine seems to have incredible potential to revolutionize how bars will serve beer in the future.  What about pop dispensers in fast food restaurants?
Each cup has a big hole at the bottom that’s sealed with a flat circular magnet. The machine pops the magnet up and fills the cup with beer from underneath, and when it retracts, the magnet in the cup reseals the hole. For you, the impatient and thirsty customer, this means a better beer-to-foam ratio delivered faster with less mess, plus hey, free magnet!  This system is obviously going to increase the price of the cups, but the idea is that companies will buy ads on the magnets to help offset that. And as you can see, this machine is damn fast on the pour, and faster pouring means more beer sold.
We are having another quiet day in the campground today.  I’m still nursing a head cold but think I have turned the corner as I am not quite as stuffed up as I was yesterday.
