Brew Bucket 7 Gallon Fermenter Review

The Brew Bucket is a winner, hands down. My only real hold up is the price and the amount of beer that could get left behind when you rack, but otherwise this is a real high quality product clearly designed with homebrewers in mind and not just some scaled down version of what the big boys are using. I'm really looking forward to any other products that might be coming out of their shop in the future.


Oktoberfest 2012

This is a video board created for DuClaw Brewing Company to display what's on tap at the Maryland Brewer's Oktoberfest. Created to run on Xbox 360 or Windows 7 connected to a big ass Flat Panel television and a set of very loud speakers. The board also plays promotional videos on a set schedule and has a few more animations and effects not shown in this clip. The board actually runs on 3 different screens all with their own content, beer selection, videos, etc. We wrote the original for Oktoberfest 2009 and it gets updated each year. It's pretty much a giant video game written with XNA and C#.
