Default Anyone familiar with this system??

Browsing around on CL and came across this.

Beer MicroBrewery - Price Reduced

Any idea how this works? It says no grain is needed...along with a lot of other BS about how it was bought off of a pizza guy.
Are these just the fermenters?
Anyone know what the brand is? The link was not working. This thing has been for sale on CL for many months.

Its an extract system. If it hasn't sold then its overpriced

This a commercial, no-boil, "brew-in-bag". You buy pre-hopped extract, add water, yeast, and ferment.

Which is to say, you are locked in on buying from us.

It's a pub-sized Mr. Beer system.

It is not a brew in a bag system. BIAB is all grain and I'd hate to see someone attempt to lift a full bag of grain out of one of these things. BIAB would be really hard to make viable on a commercial scale.

Oh yeah the addabrewpub system..there are a few ancient threads on it...it is like a glorified big mr beer system that resteraunts can buy and use pretty much large scale mr beer or cooper kits...

If it's being sold for 600, obvioulsy the previous owner was not successful.
