The company's prototype, called the SYNEK draft system, sits on your kitchen counter and dispenses beer—even from the most obscure craft breweries. The secret behind this "Keurig for beer" is a new kind of flexible packaging that holds the equivalent of about eleven 12-ounce beer cans, says SYNEK strategic director Mike Werner.
The idea is that any brewery can fill up the bags and ship them out in cartridges, which look like the boxes coffeehouses sell for meetings. Take a box home, pop it into the toaster-size SYNEK, and pour a cold one whenever you want. The cartridges keep the beer fresh for about 30 days and are as easy to store as a bag of ground coffee.
"First and foremost, congratulations to Savath_Bunny for gaining so many supporters for this very well done concept on LEGO Ideas.
We've looked into the possibility of producing a set based on this licensed property (Pokémon). Since the property is owned by a competitor, we've decided it's neither a brand fit nor a strategic fit for the LEGO Group to pursue a license, and so we will not consider Pokémon projects on LEGO Ideas further. We're sorry to be the bearers of this disappointing news.
This project is now archived as we know it isn't feasible to produce. Your project will remain visible on LEGO Ideas, but in a status where it can no longer be supported or commented on. This way fans can still admire your creation.
Since LEGO Ideas opens us to new product suggestions, naturally people will suggest concepts that aren't a strategic fit. We are however grateful for the spirit behind projects like yours, and we hope to see more projects from you soon!"
