Innis & Gunn founder and master brewer Dougal Sharp has been making beer since he was a teenager.

Keurig gets a gold star for the concept behind their Keurig Kold drinkmaker system. Soft drinks from a can are fine, but there's nothing quite like fresh, cold, draft pop. Keurig's problem is that the Keurig Kold fails on more levels than it succeeds. It's big, slow, and expensive, but it does produce a very nice glass of fresh pop.
