Beer and gadgets, surely a marriage made in heaven. We’ve had the widget, now we have the Guinness Surger, a new way to get a “pub like” pint of Guinness at home.
Whether or not you can be bothered doing this after the first pint is open to debate – but here goes. You plug in the Surger, add 1-2 teaspoons of water onto the metal plate, take your Guinness Draught Surger beer from the fridge, pour Guinness Draught it slowly into a pint glass at a 45 degree angle, place your glass on the Surger and press the button. Got all that?
The Surger works using ultra-sonic technology. At the touch of a button, the Surger sends an ultra-sonic pulse through the pint glass, releasing the gases in the beer, which then settles into the “velvet” pint with creamy head.
Guinness Surger starter kits (Surger unit, 2 x 520ml cans and a pint glass) are available now in selected supermarkets across the country, costing around £17. The Guinness Draught Surger beer will be sold in 4-packs for around £5.
