hmmm...

Why a 5% Beer Gets You Drunk So Much Faster than a 4% Beer

If you look at the alcohol percentage on beers, it doesn’t seem like they’re all that different. After all, a 5% lager is just 1% more alcohol than a supposedly lighter beer, right? While that’s true, Draft Magazine explains the science of how ABV actually works.

 

So, if you’ve ever wondered why you can pound 10 Coors Lights at a barbecue but a couple microbrews destroy you, there you go. Head over to Draft Magazine for a more detailed breakdown of all the math.

Reminds me of the story (if it isn't true, it should be) of a prospector in the Yukon who found gold and hit the town in Dawson. The hotel owner got concerned after finding out that the prospector had the local grocery deliver all their corn flakes to his room and hearing loud crunching noise coming from inside.  He opened the door and found the grizzled man buck naked as were the two young ladies he was teaching to snow-shoe.

If they discover it enhances hop flavor the craft brewers will be all over it.

Maybe they synergistically(if that's a word) increase the buzz like cell phone brain cancer,but in a good way.

The magnets in that video look more stout than the guy described, so I'll bet he was talking about an early model. The cups must be pretty expensive tho. If your per-serving cost is going to be higher, the selling price is going to have to be higher, at least until you're making it up in quantity... their example of going from 20 kegs/event to over 100... not sure that's sustainable or desirable But cutting down on waste is going to save, too. Hmm.

You would need big events too. I'm sure it improves line speed, but just to the next choke point - I'm guessing you can't get 5x the volume through the minimum wage cashier. I can see cutting a lot of waste though, but if my pub is moving that much beer I'm probably off to a different pub anyway.

I saw some commentary somewhere that it's moderately easy to bump the disc/gasket off the bottom and have a sad. So you probably wouldn't want to use it anyplace that can't be hosed down.

Pretty cool. Does it just measure the amount 'poured'? Or is there some sort of sensor for full?  I'm sure this would help yields from a keg, but I don't know if most places outside of sports venues need beers filled that fast.
