Although we stand by our claim that canned beer can be great beer, many enthusiasts still love the bottled stuff. But what if you want to sample without commitment? Enter the BeerVault—preserving and dispensing craft brewski as needed.


The BeerVault, created by Australian design firm Jones Chijoff, sucks bottles into backlit, UV-blocking acrylic tubes, where their content remains chilled and fresh until needed. The beer inside stays under the same pressure it was subjected to in its original bottle, so you can rely on consistency of taste. The whole setup is also quite easy on the eyes too, allowing aficionados to drink in the warm colors of each variety before selecting—no beer goggles needed. [BornRich]
