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.
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.
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.
