Heineken Sues InBev Over PerfectDraft
Earlier this week, we covered the PerfectDraft, a home draft beer system. This week, we heard that Heineken is suing PerfectDraft manufacturer InBev, for infringement of "intellectual property rights."
Apparently, Heineken is in a tizzy about the similarity of PerfectDraft to its own product, the Beertender. We don't know what intellectual property is, but we know we can get behind the idea of draft beer at home. We'll be monitoring this case to see how it works out, but all we can say is "Can't we all just get along?" We don't know who invented it first, but we don't really care. Our question is when we're going to be able to get one of these systems here in the states - currently they're only available in Europe.
Learn more about PerfectDraft, and compare it to the Heineken Beertender, and then somebody let us know when we can get our hands on either system.
