If I had that much to spend on my brewery, I think it would go towards other equipment.

Agreed.  Very expensive.  I do think it's cool that someone came up with that though.  Not sure I believe all their claims in the video.

It looks like making bread with a bread machine.

Where's the mash tun and kettle?

This seems a lot more useful at ~1/3 the cost, if you want a pre-built brewery.  For the remaining $3000+, you can put together a nice fermentation fridge, a kegerator, and a decent HDTV.

Looks pretty slick but does it produce great beer.

Does anyone own one, or know of anyone who has one of these fancy gadgets?

Pricey indeed$$$

5K and you still need to use 2 pots and a stove if you want to steep grains and use actual hops.  These people should be ashamed of themselves.

Looks like a fancy Mr. Beer kit. From the video it looks like no boil pre-hopped extract brewing. Easy yes, if you REALLY want to make your own beer but want it to be as easy as buying beer.

Not for home brewers (hobbyist) but a cool play toy for the rich. After I buy my first Tesla, Will be sure to pick up one of those.

Actually, reading a little more its really a personal fermenting and dispensing system. It doesn't heat the wort at all. It says you can steep grains in a pot on the stove and add that, it also recommends using a teapot to steap hops for late hop additions. So ... temperature controlled fermentation and dispensing system? Sure. I'll take three.
