Williams-Sonoma has a nice little contraption for you beer lovers out there. More specifically, you Heineken drinkers out there. If you like Heineken and you love their newish five liter draught kegs, then you might want to check out the Krups BeerTender.
If you do invest the $300 for this little kegerator, you better hope Heineken doesn’t abandon the five liter kegs. If they do, you will be left with a useless BeerTender that does nothing more than keep a six pack cold. Or what if your tastebuds change and you start craving Pabst Blue Ribbon? You may be scouring the internet for BeerTender hacks on how to make it serve other similarly sized kegs.
The product development team at Heineken better have the BeerTender owner in mind if they ever consider pulling the plug on those cute and tiny kegs. But then again, isn’t the whole idea behind those Heineken kegs the ease of use and no need for anything other than the keg to pour a beer?
