Untap The Full Taste Of Beer With Science
The Fizzics Waytap allows beer aficionados and novices alike to pour expert draft quality beer by reviving any can or bottle beer to brewery fresh draft. Engineered using the Fizzics Technology to unlock the full taste of authentic draft beer, enhancing its aroma and delivering the freshest, full-body flavor possible.
The Fizzics Micro-Foam Technology Leverages Fluid Dynamics And Sound
- When you place a can or bottle of beer into the Waytap system and close it, the system is automatically pressurized and ready to dispense. Pulling the handle forward gently pours the body of the beer under pressure into your glass, controlling the flow digitally while keeping the bottle pressurized to keep the bulk of the carbonation within the beer. Pushing the handle backwards triggers the sonication process, which applies sound waves to control the process of abstracting and converting the beer’s natural carbonation into ideal Micro-Foam comprised of uniform-sized bubbles with the perfect density, delivering the best aroma, flavor and mouth-feel.
- In seconds, you have turned your favorite canned or bottled beer in to a draught beer. at home, with the Fizzics Waytap!

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However, every time I pour a beer, I seem to get way too much foam. Just doing the first step of the pour creates too much foam even before the second step in the Fizzics pour. I have tried different pouring "methods", but no matter what I do it creates too much foam and I have to wait to let the foam settle down.
Additionally, my unit goes through batteries incredibly quickly. I believe the unit drains the batteries even while it is not being used. If I put in a fresh set of batteries, use the Fizzics a couple of times, and then wait a few days the batteries will be dead. I have started removing the top of the unit when it is not in use to break the circuit, and the batteries last much longer. Seems like a flaw in the design of the unit.
Overall I do enjoy having this system, but I think it is overpriced and it needs some refinement.
My Dad and Brother-in-law are developing an interest in microbrew beers, access to many (they live outside of Austin) and no interest in tasting from the tap - "not bar people" you see. Nor are they,or gadget/techy/early adopter people or patient with instructions.
Well..it worked as advertised* (more on this), easy and quick to assemble** (more on this later), lightweight and slimmer than expected.
Insert 4 AA batteries (not included), can/bottle of beer into system base, pull the tap and you've got mircobrew on tap - whereever you want it. The 3lbs (seem lighter), cordless (runs on batteries), chemical free (no nitro or co2 used) this model really is portable.
Before testing it, I thought Waytap's selling poing was a creating frothy/foamy head that doesn't pour out a can/bottle. Just replicating the look of a tap pour at home would be quasi "brewery" experience to bring to holiday gathering and put to use through football season. I assumed it to be trendy/novelty gadget rather than practical and useful.
Waytap does more than create a lovely head; its patented system improves the taste of bottled/can beer. I can vouch for this, typically drink 2/3 beer before it tastes bitter/heavy not good enough to finish. I finished the entire test can. Slim enought to share a counter in my tiny studio ktichen (pic attached)
**instructions -took me few tries to replace top after inserting batteries, eventually discvering faint notches to align.
NOTE TO SELF: READ not just look at the instructions packaged with Waytap: "align the vertical notches on back of the lid".
Well, I'm prepared to help them when they don't read instructions - they're both getting a Waytap.
Problem #1 - The batteries drain when the unit is not in use. This is a problem that will take you longer than the 30-day return window to figure out. I used the product for 3 weeks and maybe 8 beers (and cleanings) and had to change the batteries. Then I used the product for another 3 weeks and 2 beers, and had to change the batteries again. And now there is no way to get my money back.
So most of you can stop right here. But if you think that you may be able to live with removing the batteries after each use, read on..
Problem #2 - The battery compartment is very difficult to close. You have to twist it into place in just the right position and I gurantee it will take you at least 4 to 5 attempts to get it to seat properly. This is only a problem because a potential solution to Problem #1 might have been to take the batteries out between uses (which, by the way, is ridiculous). But this becomes a real chore when they design a battery compartment that you can't close without an instruction manual!
Again, these first 2 issues should be show stoppers, but if you're anything like I was and already have it in your head that you want to buy this thing, then please read on...
Problem #3 - When the Fizzics actually does work, it doesn't pour a full beer in one pour. At least the unit I have stops halfway through, requiring me to pull forward again (and sometimes even a third time). And once I do get a "full" pour, there is always some beer still left at the bottom of the bottle, which completely defeats the purpose of having a beer tap in the first place.
Still not convinced that you should move on? OK, I have more...
Problem #4 - You have to clean this unit out after every beer change. Sounds easy enough, but not when the only way to clean the Fizzics is to run a bottle of water through it (cutting the already impossibly short battery life exactly in half). And then there's the problem of having to have a small water bottle on hand that will actually fit into the unit (that is, assuming you don't want to go through the process of rinsing out your beer bottle and using it instead). Believe me, all of this is a much bigger inconvenience in practice than it sounds like on paper and makes you not want to use the unit after a few uses. And then your batteries will drain as you let the unit sit (see Problem #1).
So, by now, surely I've convinced you that the Fizzics does not deserve a place on your kitchen counter. But for those of you who still want to buy a product that simply doesn't work, I have one more issue for you to consider...
Problem #5 - Assuming you can live with all of the other problems I've mentioned, when the Fizzics actually does operate, you'll never know when to "pull back" on the handle to create the foam (which is actually pretty good, but in no way worth the trouble given all of these problems). Since the foam is the main point of the Fizzics, not knowing when to actually create it is not a small issue to overcome. Most times, I ended up waiting too long or pulling back too early. Some sort of indicator would have been nice, or even a clear window so that I could see how much beer is left in the bottle while I'm pouring. But that would just add cost to a product that really doesn't work in any other respect. So this one is probably a moot point anyway.
Bottom line, the Fizzics just doesn't work, and it will take you longer than 30 days to figure that out. No, I didn't just get a bad unit. No, I am not just some bitter consumer who likes to write bad reviews. And, no, your experience is not likely to be any different than mine. If you want to donate over 100 of your hard earned dollars to a product that was rushed out to market before it was ready, than feel free. But I, for one, have learned my lesson. So I guess I'll have to chalk it up as an educational expense.
The real question is, do you want to do the same?
Surprisingly, the cheaper the beer, the more improvement it makes. It worked best on Michelob Amber Bock. It improved Fat Tire and Blue Moon, but to a lesser extent. It leaves about 10% of the beer in the bottle. Don't add it your glass right away, it just becomes more head. Take a few sips, then add it. SPECIAL NOTE: Running a refrigerator-chilled bottle through this machine warms it to just above room-temp. I like my beer cold, so I've started keeping some chilled glasses in the freezer.

Got this product as a gift after seeing it on Shark Tank. Definitely adds a lot to beer rather than pouring straight from the bottle or can.Read more
