About this project
We believe that beer is an art that deserves to be shared with the world. Imagine, for a moment, that you could have access to every beer in the world fresh from the tap. Your favorite local brewery, your best friend’s homebrew, or an international favorite…all available to you wherever and whenever you want it.
SYNEK has turned that vision into a reality.

Filling from any tap is easy:
..just some of many so far..Let us know who you want! We'll make it happen!
NOTE: Please continue to call, email, and otherwise contact your favorite breweries and ask about SYNEK (and report back to us as we work on our end). One of the easiest and most effective ways we've found is you tweeting: "@[brewery of interest] are you guys on board to fill the @syneksystem cartridges?: http://kck.st/1o00kuo #SYNEK". Others will favorite, retweet, etc. Even if they do not get back to you, at least they see it, and rest assured we will follow up with them. Also please consider sharing this "handout" with them.
Don't lose quality (like you do with growlers) - ours last 30+ days!
- Cartridges are interchangeable - ultimate selection and convenience; change in-between pours with no lost carbonation
- Easily store our cartridges; perfect for aging and safe-keeping
- Completely customize your cartridge, from homebrewer to brewery; start your beer-sharing or homebrew club NOW!
- Dispense your favorite craft beers at their highest quality anywhere
- Access craft beer around the world and easily transport it!
Bottom line: We are forced to choose between selection, convenience, OR quality. But now you can have them all, with SYNEK.
Backers of our Kickstarter will receive the following privileges that nobody else will:
- Get it CHEAP! Get the dispenser for $299 and 10+ cartridges (could be more cartridges depending on how much we can scale). Plus, the more stretch goals we hit, the more free stuff you get.
100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE. During or after Kickstarter, if you are not satisfied with your experience, we will refund you 100%.
- Support Your Local Craft Brewer! We envision transforming the craft beer industry. Every backer opens up new opportunities for local brewers to sell more beer at a higher quality and lower cost.
- Finalize the design for our early 2015 first shipment. You will provide input following the close of our Kickstarter to finalize the design. We have our team of designers, manufacturers, etc. ready to roll; now we just need you!
- Access to industry experts. You will get access to private LIVE interviews with brewers and distillers across the world and ask questions for their expert advice. Check out our other website: www.craft-conscious.com.
- The Future of SYNEK. You will have input on the design of the next version of the SYNEK dispenser - you lead the way!

Risks and challenges
Product Delays- We have relationships already established with manufacturers, distributors, etc. but there is a chance that the production process may take longer than expected, especially if there are large orders.
Local Legal Issues - Ever country, state, province, city, etc. has unique laws when it comes to producing, distributing, and consuming alcoholic beverages. Please ensure you understand the laws that apply to your location to ensure SYNEK can provide the most impact.
Process Concerns - There are a million+ unique ways to create, store, and dispense beer. We have tested the major ones, but not all of them. SYNEK may not perform up to standards under unique situations. We will do our best to work with you to learn how SYNEK may have under-performed and discern the best way to overcome it. Bottles have had a century to perfect the process and they still give users issues.
Brewery Participation - We will be providing tap adapters to our Kickstarter backers; however, not every brewer will allow you to fill your cartridge off their tap. Tell us if you run into this issue and we will do the best we can to educate that brewer on why they should start filling in our cartridges.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
