The makers of a high-tech Australian beer machine are preparing for a boost in sales after some of America’s largest retailers agreed to stock its BrewArt system.

South Australian brewery Coopers is one of the world’s biggest manufacturers of homebrew beer products. It launched the automated system that uses Wi-Fi, precise temperature control and patented end of fermentation technology last year.

Two of the USA’s most prestigious department store groups, Bloomingdale’s and Neiman Marcus, and online retail giant Amazon are now selling the systems.
