Tired of your beer tasting like fermented horse urine but don't want to actually, you know, buy better beer? You are in luck with this single-serving beer infuser from Doghead Brewery.
Dubbed the Randall Jr, this device is a handheld version of the brewery's Randall The Enamel Animal infuser. They both work essentially like a tea bag does. You simply place whatever flavoured item you want — vanilla beans, espresso beans, mint leaves, pepper corns, candy corns and what have you — into a basket suspended from the side of the cup, then fill it with your favourite beer and set it in the fridge for 10 minutes. This allows the alcohol to leech flavours from the ingredients into the beer, creating a custom concoction. You can, of course, use this with any beer — not just swill — so if you've ever wanted to try a chocolate Guinness, orange and strawberry Heineken, or wasabi Asahi, now you can.
The Randall Jr retails for $US20 on the Doghead Brewery website and is available now. You'll have to buy two, of course, so as to avoid a lag between first beer and second. [Doghead via Laughing Squid]
