This past weekend at the Angelhack in Los Angeles, https://apphack13la.eventbrite.com, I worked with a team of guys (Joaquin, Alan and Cory) to build an Arduino-powered beer pump. Our in-house brew master, America, served it up.

This project followed the #driptweet coffee maker with a few adjustments. http://www.instructables.com/id/Tweet-a-Pot-Twitter-Enabled-Coffee-Pot/?ALLSTEPS

Hardware used in this project were an arduino uno, seeeduino relay shield, LED light, and a 2 prong power cord extension.

Software used in this project was Python and an Arduino Sketch. Both can be found at https://github.com/joaquinbeltran/angelhack.
