Krups, the world wide leader of small appliances and Heineken, the leader in European Premium Imported Beer have partnered together to create the ultimate at home draught beer experience. The Krups BeerTender system is compatible with the Heineken DraughtKeg system which utilizes an internal carbonator pressure unit. With 25 patented components, the Heineken DraughtKeg unit releases Co2 every time the tap is opened, ensuring the beer remains fresh for up to 30 days and allows for a crisp quality beer with Heinekens’ signature head of foam and trademark “bite”. The Krups BeerTender Peltier silent cooling system provides constant and consistent cooling of the 5L Heineken DraughtKeg and will keep it at the ideal temperature of 37.4 degrees F. Easy to operate, just run the keg’s plastic tube to the Krups BeerTender tap and you’re done. It’s that simple. Inserting a keg takes less than 15-seconds.

Husband Loves it, Wife not so much Although it is a tad annoying, this product is worth buying your honey for father’s day or his birthday because I will tell you that the guys just down right love having cold beer on tap, and you can fit this little unit in just about any room. Now that I have figured out where to get the kegs (and to look for when they go on sale), and that you have to make sure to buy tap lines in advance, it is less of a bother than it seemed at first. You need to know that you have to buy special plastic disposable tap lines for every keg (not as green as I would like, although my brother figured out how to reuse them more than once) that are pricey, there is only three beers you can buy to put in it (Heineken and Heineken Light, and New Castle Brown), and if you buy or store the kegs warm it takes a long time to cool down. Once it is cold you are set though, and there is an indicator to show how cold and how full the keg is. I had one horrible experience trying to change the keg, alone where…

Fabulous! I purchased this unit on sale at Best Buy for $79.99. I was very skeptical about the quality for the price, but with the big game next weekend I could not resist.I stopped by BevMo on my way home. This unit ONLY uses Beertender compatible kegs. So far, only Heinekin, Heinekin Light, and New Castle are available for this machine. If you don’t like any of those beers, skip it.Luckily, BevMo had the Heinekin and New Castle minikegs in stock, but it was not cold.I brought it all home and started to set it up. It was VERY SIMPLE. The directions are all illustrated with written directions a couple pages later.Things I did not know before set up:1) It takes special “BeerTender Tubes”. I did not know about these until I started setting it up. I looks like you can only use them one time. There were 6 included with purchase. It looks like replacements are available on Amazon for $9 for 6 tubes.2) You must insert a COLD KEG into the machine. If it…
