Whilst our focus at all times with Pinter 3 has been to bring you the best way to make Fresh Beer, there’s nothing wrong with wanting it to look good. Offering a range of colourways isn’t just about aesthetics though, it allows our Fresh Beer community an additional layer of personalisation, to give a touch of preference and personality when your Pinter is pride of place at your next get together. So which colour are you? Join us on our colourful journey in choosing the colours that you’ll be able to pick from with your Pinter 3.
With Pinter 2, we launched with 5 powder-coated metal Pinter 2s, but we found that our community gravitated towards 3 main colours, which we used as inspiration. But we didn’t want to rest on our laurels.
We started afresh and looked at all possibilities. We researched current trends, the best and brightest around, but we also wanted to make sure they looked quintessentially Pinter, apologies to the neon rainbow fans. We wanted to make sure that we had strong colours that felt fresh.
So if we were happy with the Pinter 2 colours, why didn’t we just reuse them as opposed to doing all this research and work? Well the decision was made early to make sure the Pinter 3 was as easy as possible to use, leading to a lighter weighted material used. When it comes to finishes that means that Pinter 2 and Pinter 3 colours and finishes appear very different.
We made visualisations using rendering programs and created studies to see what people liked the most. We then painted over and over again on similar material to Pinter 3 with the best selection of colours.
Deep Grey is sleek and refined, the elegant geometry of the Pinter body in their most distinguished form. A final stylish accent comes from the Pure Finish tap handle. Electric Blue retains the refinement but with just the right amount of pop from a stunning blue body and TPE trim. Rich Red, for the bold and the brave, a real statement piece that jumps out on Instagram.
From Pinter 1 bold dark branding to detailed laser etching on Pinter 2, we went even purer and liberated the casing from all branding and concentrated it around the rubber trim, which also has a slightly darker tonal colour to accentuate from the rest of the casing.
We then made a call and created prototypes with accurate colours and textures.
When tooling was complete we were able to inject with the right masterbatch (Colour pellets) and made some slight tweaks in order to have the best selection of colours we were after.
So there you have it, we couldn't be happier with Deep Grey, Electric Blue and Rich Red. Now we've shown you our true colours, it's time to show yours. Register your interest before launch to be in with a chance of winning the colour of your choice. Click here to register.
