    Pim Clieff, these guys urgently need to buy a security system because I'm already trying to buy this beer. Lol well, I'm serious, they need to go to the site on which they would order a security system, motion sensors, and water leak sensors...well, that is, beer. Okay, I'm kidding, there are no such sensors. No, well, in fact, it looks very cool, like a work of art. I wonder how long it took them to assemble this design... The guys are well done and definitely deserve attention.
