The TapIt Cap - Great Christmas
Present for a Beer Geek
The TapIt Cap is a
patent-pending design that ensures the beer in your growler remains fresh and
carbonated. Donít know what a growler is? Growlers are used to transport beer
home from craft breweries. They are reusable and are more ecologically friendly
than bottles or cans, even if you recycle. Check out our Kickstarter video.
Why does the growler need
Rob had the idea when my homebrew partner told me his father had quit using
growlers because the beer went flat too quickly. Buying craft beer in
growlers is less expensive, but the value decreases when the beer isnít
consumed in one evening and goes flat after 12 hours. A capped growler can
sit for a week or longer depending on how carefully it was filled. But after
the first beer is poured from a growler, air flows in to replace the beer.
Oxidation leads to bad flavors in the beer just a few hours after opening
and the beer becomes flat.
The reactions of beer drinkers who have used the TapIt Cap prototype have
been very encouraging. Their excitement over my design has been a huge
motivation and has inspired me to bring this product to the market. The
first time professional brewer Bill Eye saw a prototype, he asked the price
and when he would be able to purchase the TapIt Cap. Rob didnít have to tell
him what it was, he recognized the function and potential immediately.
Everyone in the beer industry who has seen the TapIt Cap knows what an
important addition this device will be to the craft beer industry.
Other companies have unsuccessfully tried to create products that do what
the TapIt Cap accomplishes. Rob's design works with the readily available
glass growler, which hundreds of craft breweries use every day.
Bob: Where?! Whadda ya doing?
