Freddie Paul is a designer who enjoys aesthetically pleasing objects and a brew from time to time, and the Beer Tree helps to marry these two loves.
Paul was irritated with the way home brewing kits came. Most of the time they were made up of tubes and boxes, and never packaged in a way that was nice to look at. Because of this, he came up with the beer tree, which not only looks great but can also brew great home beer. DesignBoom states that "removable vessels, detachable hoses, and stainless steel tubes are inserted into a laminated plywood base to create an honest and raw appearance." This allows the brew kit to be left out instead of hidden in the garage year-round.
