German Engineering Is About to Kick Start the Draft Beer Revolution


The Germans have a knack for cold beer and flawless engineering. Now, guess what happens if the Krauts combine their favorite pastime with their ingenious method of building machines. They invent: Das Kuhling.

Das Kuhling is a mobile beer pump that gets a keg party started. Sure, there are other systems on the market, like the kegerator, but most of them are bulky and too inconvenient for, let’s say, a spontaneous barbeque.

Das Kuhling, however, was designed with ease of use in mind. At its briefcase size, it hooks up to any power outlet at hand – whether it is US or international mains, or 12V outlets. Simply connect it to a keg and beer lovers are ready to enjoy a cold and fresh draft beer. The inventors even got rid of the huge and often hard to come by CO2- bottles. Instead, this tiny machine uses an air compressor that pumps purified air from its surrounding into the keg.

“For years I have been dreaming about drafting beer from my kitchen faucet,” says the inventor, Thorsten Loth. So just this year, him and his friends Peter (engineering), Judith (PR) and Carlo (media) founded Das Kuhling LLC in the US. Their mission: make every beer lover’s dream come true. Accordingly, their baby is compatible with any beer tap, party faucet, and – well – your kitchen. Unlike your kitchen though, the system is self-cleaning.

Another smart feature is the built-in cooler, which allows people to use a warm keg and cool down beer to their preferred temperature within minutes. And, as Germans are overly precise, beer lovers can set the temperature by one tenth of a degree. The team’s Rock’n’Roll background highly influenced the look of their invention. It is simply built to last – on the tough outside as well as all the high quality components on the inside.

The four founding friends have now started what they call “Krautfunding” on Kickstarter to further improve their prototype and get ready to go into production. Mastermind Peter says, “We still want to add a unique flow-meter and a parental lock. Also, we are hoping for enough support to use even better components than we already have to further shrink Das Kuhling, making it yet more versatile.”
