Beertender Home Beer Tap System
We're pretty sure by now you've seen those Heineken beer kegs in pretty much every store from here to Amsterdam. If you've had the hankering to give them a try but were waiting for the perfect opportunity, here's your chance. Pick up the Heineken Beertender, stick one of those little mini-keggy-things in there, and drink up. Hey, after a couple of 'em it'll end up cheaper than going out, so that's great as long as you really like Heineken.

Also only available in Europe but possibly better than both The Philips P.D. and the Tender.
It is free of exclusive beer company affiliations and and uses 4, 5 or 6 liter kegs for around 300 beer brands and can also serve chilled wines and soft drinks.
Your correct at this time the Perfect draft is only available in Europe.
Don't get me wrong I like the idea, and I never meant to question your honesty I was just being a little more forward with flaws in the current beertender system.
Yeah, we covered the perfect draft a while back (see the link) but we can't find it anywhere, and lo and behold was the beertender on Amazon. As for the higher cost than bottles, we actually didn't calculate we just made an assumption. And when we make an assumption we make an ass out of umption, and ourselves.
Thanks for keeping us honest.
I don't know about where you are but the mini kegs are more expensive by ounce here than bottles.
Not to mention InBev's Perfect Draft system was out first (http://www.perfectdraft.com) and "a district court in the Hague rejected Heineken's claim that its patents had been encroached by a portable beer-on-tap system developed by InBev and technology group Philips." So Heineken can't even sell it in its home country. Also the perfect draft will accept mini kegs of any InBev product. If they expand on the number of products in Mini's and launch here in the states that would be something to talk about.
