What I didn't expect, however, was furtively chugging a small beer before a home-brewing demo was shut down by the authorities. And yet, there I was, sneaking a tiny sip (or two) of brew poured fresh from the tap at iGulu's F1 smart beer automated home brew appliance on the Las Vegas show floor before the convention cops stopped service.
