The Times of Israel reports: SodaStream, the Israeli company that brought homemade carbonated drinks to kitchens around the world, is making a bid to conquer the home pub with the introduction of Beer Bar, its first homemade brew.
The company announced the addition in a news release Monday, spurring share prices to soar, according to the Israeli financial publication Globes.
Crafting a homemade beer requires the same simple steps as making the company’s other beverages: adding a packet of flavored concentrate to freshly carbonated water, which SodaStream’s device generates in seconds. Current flavors include a variety of fruit mixes and colas.
