Fizzics: Make Your Favorite Beer Better!

Elevate store bought beer into expert draft quality beer, the way the brewers intended it to taste.

Agency 2.0: A Certified Campaign
 
 
 

 

Every perfectly poured glass from Fizzics is a salute to the modern beer enthusiast.

 

 

 

 

 

Fizzics serves a vast universe of macro and craft beers.

It is compatible with all standard size glass bottles including most “Bombers” (22-oz bottle package format) and cans from 16-oz “Tall Boys” to 32-oz “Man Cans” or the Fizzics 64oz growlers.

 

 

Fizzics is a revolutionary beer system curating a draft quality experience straight from any store-bought, off the shelf beer.  

 

No longer are expertly poured, quality draft beer experiences exclusive to the high end craft beer and mixology bars.

  

 

Fizzics applies science & technology to stimulate your 5 senses, beyond what store bought is capable of.

Fizzics delivers an expertly poured pint as the brewers intended your favorite beer to taste.

 

 

You know from personal experience, a good draft beer just tastes better! 

We are about to show you the science of how and why Fizzics does what it does and why it is better than your normal draft.

With Fizzics, you’ll be a Cicerone (beer sommelier) in no time.

 

Brewers spend a lot of time and effort to ensure that their beer froths, foams, bubbles, effervesces, sparkles or fizzes in an appealing manner.

 

Bubbles and fizz are essential because:

  

Fizzics focuses on beer foam and bubble generation to provide visual stimulation for color, contrast, and carbonation of your favorite beer.

Fizzics controls pressure flow, fluid and gas dynamics to create a rich, creamy foam (head) that enhances the appearance, texture, smoothness and mouthfeel.

 

Fizzics underlies the different phases of fizz: 

Nucleation (bubble starts to form), Beading(bubbles rise to form a head), Disproportionation (bubbles mature).

 

 

Nucleation occurs when a can, bottle or growler of beer is opened and CO2 under pressure is released from the beer creating bubbles and foam.

 

 

Beading is the constant replenishment of foam through gas breakout or simply the process of when bubbles rise to form head.

 

 

Ostwald ripening is a phenomenon of adjacent bubbles at different pressures passing from small bubble (higher pressure) to large bubble (lower pressure).

 

 

As beer drains from the foam, the walls of the bubbles start to touch and then merge (coalesce) to produce larger, more unstable bubbles.

 

 

 

This is truly a scientific revolution for the modern beer drinker.

 

 

Never settle for drinking the same beer from a giant size keg or limit your beer options again.  Choose from thousands of macro or craft brews from your local beer retailer, bar or brewer.

 

Fizzics is the first beer dispensing system that provides complete control over every single step of enjoying your favorite brew.

Choose your favorite beer variety to fine-tuning the exact level of foam to top off your masterpiece to recreate the draught quality and fine craftsmanship that you previously enjoyed from your favorite bartender’s pour.

 

No over-pour, spillage or wasted beer again.  

Anti-microbial drip matt and system canister separates from dispensing manifold for easy rinsing and washing. 

 

You can enjoy fresh draft quality beer in seconds with just the pull of a tap.

  

Brings the simple pleasure of serving and enjoying draught quality beer as easy as opening/closing a lid and pulling/pushing a tap handle.

Why can’t I just drink beer straight from the bottle or can?

We believe beer is liquid art which deserves to be respected and consumed the way Brew-masters intended. Just as one would never drink wine or spirits straight from the bottle, it’s highly recommended to pour beer into proper glassware to release its full potential and maximize aroma and flavor.

Can’t I just simply pour my beer into a glass to generate foam?

Yes and No.  A hand pour provides mechanical agitation that will create foam of randomly packed bubbles of non-uniform shapes that will occupy more space thus are inherently less dense and frothy.  However, only Fizzics eliminates unsightly, bloated bubbles which contribute to foam collapse.  Our device packs small, dense bubbles to preserve the hoppy flavor in beer while providing a wonderful mouthfeel of creamy wet foam.

Why is foam important?

Foam is an integral part of beer quality and overall drinking experience.  It’s visually appealing, enhances aroma, flavor and mouthfeel of beer and is expected by all serious beer drinkers.

How does Fizzics compare to other draft beer dispensers or kegerators?

Most all beer system is powered by a set of equipment (keg, faucet handle, tower, regulator, beer & air lines, CO2 and nitrogen tanks) that must work together for a successful pour.  Fizzics is a compact, personal system that utilizes the inherent properties of conditioned and commercially packaged beer coupled with our technology to control the pressure of CO2 wanting to come out of solution and influence foam generation and beer head retention. 

Can I use any bottle or cans?

Yes.  Fizzics serves a vast universe of macro and craft beers and is compatible with all standard size glass bottles including most “Bombers” (22-oz bottle package format) and cans from 16-oz “Tall Boys” to 32-oz “Man Cans.”

Can Fizzics be used with other carbonated beverages besides beer?

Our system is optimized for beer

How do you clean Fizzics?

Cleaning Fizzics is very easy.  Run a glass of water or fill an empty, clean can or bottle with water to flush any excess beer residue.  The lid can be removed to easily clean the inside of the canister.  The anti-microbial drip matt and hose separates for easily rinsing and washing. Please check our TubeTube channel for a technical video with cleaning information.

What type of beverages are compatible with Fizzics?

Fizzics is compatible with all standard-sized beer cans and beer bottles and requires no expensive consumable or proprietary keg or accessories. Whether it’s an IPA, Hefeweizen, Pilsner, Brown Ale, or any other popular brew – Fizzics will pour it perfectly.

Should my glass be cold?

While the can or bottle of beer you insert should always be cold – the glass is up to you. We always recommend a freshly water-rinsed beer mug or glass – but for flavor sake, please don’t freeze or frost your glass.

What kind of batteries does the Fizzics use?

Fizzics is powered by 4 standard AA batteries.

Does Fizzics come in different colors?

At this time, there is only one color available for the Fizzics beer system, but we will explore other options in the future.

What’s special about a beer poured from Fizzics?

Fizzics provides an enhanced aroma, flavor and taste as well as a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Scientifically engineered using patent-pending fluid & gas technology to create an ultra-dense, long-lasting foam head. The technology that went into Fizzics is both highly complex and strikingly simple. Easy to operate and portable, Fizzics provides for enhanced balance and sensational mouthfeel. 

Are the materials in Fizzics FDA approved?

Yes. All components are manufactured, assembled and packaged in a positive pressure Class 100 Clean Room environment and regularly subjected to rigorous testing to meet the stringent requirements of the FDA. All resins are FDA approved food-grade materials and assembled using stainless steel hardware. Designed to comply with FDA, FCC, CE and RoHS standards and regulations. 

When will Fizzics ship?

We will begin shipping Fizzics in October of this year, approximately 4 months after the campaign ends. 

How is US/Canada shipping handled?

US and Canada backers from the VIP E-mail List will receive free shipping (pre-launch e-mail sign-up and notified of launch by e-mail). If you were not on the VIP E-mail List, please add $25 for continental US and Canadian shipping and another $5 for the growler.

How is international shipping handled?

Due to differentiation between countries and territories, international shipping will be paid separately by everyone who pledges internationally. This will include import regulations, payment of import duties and taxes. Near the end of the campaign, or in the week(s) following, the Fizzics team will contact you for your calculated shipping payment.

Can I cancel my perk and/or get a refund?

Indiegogo policy dictates that campaign owners have no ability to adjust perk selections. That means we cannot upgrade your perk, we cannot change your perk and we cannot cancel your perk. Please note that contributions made on Indiegogo are also non-refundable.
