I have to say I am with you. It looks rather strange to me.

First thing...notice how the photo is of VERY bad Quality? Also notice that the "BEER 101" is very poorly photoshoped onto the pic? AND the E-mail beermachine@gmail??? I'm with you. WTF Did some idiot make this thing and now his wife is making him sell?

The lack of any mention of a manufacturer or model number kicks off my BS detector. It looks like just a big refrigerated tank and unlikely ever worth 30K.

That looks like Han and Chewbacca's brewery. Man, I'd pay 30,000 for it, but 3000 plus 500 shipping is a steal . Do you think they'll deliver it to me in the Mylenian Falcon?

Maybe it's a half barrel extract brewing system for a restaurant. If they paid $30K for it , I've got a couple bridges for sale FOB NY,NY

Looks like the lovechild of a ice maker and a water heater.

On the plus side it has slots enabling it to be easily carried via forklift, so that should help you get it in your garage....

any time an ad starts with "our loss is your gain", you should think scam right away.

I also like this feature "several threaded fittings (5/8 in. and 2 in.) on top and bottom of tank."

Great - THAT'S important
