Man, I'd love to have one of those. It looks like the beer lover's version of an espresso machine

Dear Mr. Prime

Thank you very much for being interested in the brand new BeerTender.

At the moment the BeerTender and its Kegs are only available in Switzerland and the Netherlands. Nevertheless we are very confident that the BeerTender will continue its success and eventually also be available in Australia, the precise date of its distribution though remains unknown.

For more information, please contact Heineken international and check on www.heineken.com.

Best regards
Your BeerTender Service Center

I just used the contact form on the website.

They look great!
Sort of a midway step up to kegging if you could get the system to work with homebrew. 5 or 6 mini kegs for each brew instead of 30 odd bottles.
Looks like you would have to drink all four litre before moving to a different brew.... you would probably need three systems, lined up on the kitchen bench, with a different brew on each.

I'd be happy with just one system, and just split my brews half between the kegs for home and bottles for parties etc.

in the national liquor group magazine (i think thats what its called?? - the mag they send out to all liquor outlets) they had an ad for a similar product, perhaps the same although i remember it being larger, marketed towards pubs and such.

Philips And Interbrew Take Draught Beer Home
Wednesday, 25 August 2004, 12:09 pm
Press Release: Philips

Leading electronics company Philips has joined with global brewing company Interbrew to develop a new appliance that will deliver the great taste of draught beer in the comfort of ones home.

The new appliance called PerfectDraft keeps beer in 6-litre kegs at an optimal constant temperature of 3C, keeping the beer fresh for 4 weeks. The product includes a real tap handle, internal cooling system, pump and a 6-litre light metal keg.

PerfectDraft will launch in Belgium using Stella Artois and Jupiler kegs and will eventually be rolled out to other countries. The recommended retails price for PerfectDraft will be $199.99EUR while the 6 litre kegs will be $14.99EUR.

John Brock, Interbrews CEO commented: When Interbrew came up with the idea of developing an in-home draught-beer dispensing appliance, Philips was a natural choice. Philips shares with Interbrew the objective of developing innovative products which improve daily life.

Han van Splunter CEO of Philips Domestic Appliances and Personal Care (DAP) division, added: Philips strongly believes in developing products, which meet the changing behavior of the consumer. Therefore, we are happy to team up with excellent partners to explore these new needs. Partnering with Interbrew to finally bring the great taste of draught beer into the home is definitely the right choice for Philips.

A six litre keg would be a pearler of a size. Imagine taking one of those units to a barbie... you could just sit it down next to you and not have to move your arse for the whole afternoon. Bliss.

The kegs look very good.
I'm sure us frugle brewers could convert them for use in our own environments.

Beers,

Looks a hell of a lot simpler than some of the kegging setups I've seen

If it can be easily converted for home brewing use it will be revolutionary

I want one
