'Arkington's Steam Pico-Brewery'
This device roundly trumps another batch of untrustworthy tradesmen in the continuing campaign to improve the lot of the wealthy Edwardian middle-class: this time it's the turn of the brewer, maltster and publican! Get your barley, hops, and yeast ready, and you will have a splendid pint of beer ready to drink in front of you in no time. It includes its own maltings, so no need to bother with the maltster, and obviously no need to enter one of those dens of iniquity, the public house, to get your beer.
We'll overlook the fact that you could hardly lift the contraption when it's full and working, and if you tried to drink out of it, it would probably spill spent grist and hops all over you, and likely poke your eyes out at the same time... but otherwise, it's a tremendously useful machine, offering a significant improvement to the comfort of the Edwardian household!"
