Car, Microbrewery, Car, Microbrewery. If you’re a real beer-head the decision isn’t difficult, but for the rest of us it isn’t that easy. The Hammacher Schlemmer Professional Microbrewery ($45,000) gives you everything you need to create anything from a refreshing lager, to a full-bodied stout. All you have to do is enter a recipe on the touch screen computer and the HERM takes over the rest of the process. The hot liquor tank circulates heated water to a mash/lauter tun which extracts water from your grain or mash.

All aspects of the brewing process are monitored and relayed to the computer, so you can just sit back and enjoy your creations.
