    Great Product For Beer Lovers

    Posted
    jimmyjam000

    I've had this Beertender for a little while now and love it! I have always had a preference for draft (tap) beer. The Beertender B100 model works great, it's easy to use, and the beer from it tastes better than a bottle or a can in my opinion. The Newcastle Brown Ale is delicious. Where I live I have no problem finding the "draughtkeg" mini kegs to use in the Beertender. Not all mini kegs will work. Only the "draughtkeg" style will work in the Beertender. As of now, the only beers available in this keg style are Heineken, Heineken Lite, and Newcastle Brown Ale. This new model also comes with a 2 year warranty, I think the others only had 1 year.

    paying more for the beer and limited options

    I RECENTLY bought one cause it looks cool and I figured since its coming in a keg it would save a dollar or two... wrong 5liter equals 14-12 ounce beers the keg Cost $20 heineken to $23 newcastle (12pack $13.99-$16.99) plus tax then you will end up having to buy more tap tubes cause there one time uses plus the the kegs take 10 hours to cool down if you use your fridge,18 hours if you rely on the beertender to do the the job the nozzle Drips after every use and pours out rather slow. pluses 1)it looks really cool 2) keeps beer cold once it gets down to temp 3) saves room in fridge. You end up paying extra for these luxuries For the time you own. Im returning

    The beertender is overall really good mine has not broken at all. I have the original one, Ive been to the bestbuy stores now and seen the new ones I dont know if those are defective or not. Anyways I like it. It doesnt really cool the beer you have to buy the keg cold or cool it for ten hours before putting it in the beertender. The beertender just maintains it cold. The only thing I dont like is that you have to buy the beertender tubes online they are 9.99 plus 6.98 shipping only six of them come in a bag so if you can go through kegs quick, well it gonna get expensive.

    This has been a nice addition to our entertaining and I would recommend it to everyone. The types of mini-kegs that work with this unit are Heineken/Heineken light and Newcastle. I buy mine from my local store and they come in two packs. If you ask them to keep them chilled for you, and even though the temperature light on the unit is not lit, the beer is nice and cold. From the cooler at the store, it takes about 6 hours for the light to go on, but don't worry about that. The tubes are cheap so nobody should be complaining about a new one each keg. I actually like that sanitation aspect of it, fresh tube with fresh keg.

    Great tasting Beer

    The BeerTender provides great tasting beer until the last pour and is conviently located in your kitchen! This was a gift for my husband, but I must say that I've enjoyed having it as much as he has. It seems to be much more expensive than buying bottled beer when you concider that you have to replace the BeerTender Tube each time you have to replace the mini keg. It would be great if Best Buy started carrying the tubes in store. As of right now, we are having to purchase these online only. Overall, great purchase!

    I purchased this for a Christmas gift for my husband. We love having cold draft beer available whenever want it. The beer tender does a good job keeping the beer cold and it pours with little foam. The only downside is that there are only 2 kinds of beer that can be used with this which really is a major downfall, but I still think this is fun and worth the money. It looks really modern which is ok, I wish there were some additional choices for the style. We have only been using ours for a month, but so far it's been great with no problems. I gave it four stars because of the limited choices in beer, but overall this was a good purchase.

    Very useful item for your household. Keep it by the couch and enjoy your Sunday sports. Only 3 kegs available in my CT-NJ liquor stores: Heineken, Heineken light, Newcastle (about $25 each) Pros: - Beer always available - Makes room in the refrigerator - Dudes love it when they visit you Cons: - You can't control temperature - My 1st one lasted for 3 years. This is my second. When 1st one broke down, manufacturer said it was cheaper to buy a new one than to fix the old one - regardless of diagnosis. - first couple glasses are always VERY foamy

    I really love this BeerTender. It is easy to use and great to keep beer on hand. Buy a second mini keg and store it in your refrigerator to ensure you always have beer on hand. I have found that you can re-use the beer tubes by simply removing them from the empty kegs. Search youtube for "how to's", and it is quite easy to remove them by popping the tabs out with a screwdriver. Make sure you follow the instructions for pouring the beer and you'll always get a great pint!

    Disappointed with product, thrilled with service

    Your website did not say that the beer tender ONLY could use Heinekin or it's products. My husband loves beer, but does not like Heinekin. I was so thrilled with the product when I found it, but after he unwrapped it for Christmas, the brochure said it could only use Heinekin beers. So he had to take it back. I was very pleased with your service and your easy return, as well as the free shipping and fast delivery. I just wish I had known that the Krups Beertender was so limited. Thank you.

    I did not know you needed to buy beer tender tap tubes to re-tap every new keg. Although with a little finesse you can reuse the old ones for many kegs as it gets expensive and a burden to order them. Best Buy should sell them. I really like having a cold beer on tap at all times and the beer tender works great. They only sell Heineken and Heineken light and New Castle Brown ale which is my favorite. Wish there was more to choose from......

    Poor quality, I took it back

    Cheap plastic and broke so I took it back. Only can be used with two types of beer and the minikeg is $20 or so each, tastes good the first day and they say it can last 30days but mine broke before that and beer on day 14 was not as good as day 1 (or day 5, 7, 10....). Really cool idea if it was better quality materials and better beer selection I would definitely want one.

    Great kegerator but limited

    It is very user friendly and gets the job done. The only major downfall of this great product is that it is trying to monopolize on their auto-pressurized kegs. You can only have Heineken, Heineken light, and New Castle with this kegerator. They are all great beers but if you are looking to drink other brews its a no go. So do your research before you buy.

    This mini kegerator is awesome. I only gave it 4 starts because it is not compatible with numerous beer types. If you like Heineken, Heineken Light, or Newcastle Brown Ale this is a wonderful purchase. It fits the mini kegs they sell at most supermarkets. I bought it as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend, and he LOVES it. A perfect pour every time without taking up room in the fridge- win-win.

    Great occasionally, not for a heavy drinker

    The convenience of the BeerTender is hard to beat. The table top size lets you put it anywhere but the keg size is Achilles heel. At only 5L you'll get about 11 beers out of it for around $20. Would I still buy it if I caught myself in the past, yes. Stick it in a man cave or game room and cut down on the need to pause and walk to the kitchen...

    Beer tender does not last

    Jetsfan67

    this product did not last and Krups customer service is a nightmare. I sent it back waited six weeks for them to fix it and they returned it broken and is worse condition. Beware unless you want to throw away you money on a product that lasts less than six months.

    I really love this product for I love to drink Hienenken. Even better that it's draft. This product adds nicely to your kitchen as far as looks. Have an ice cold beer on demand. Just got to get to hang of pouring. At first it's a lot of foam but I notice if you take out the little black piece where the beer comes out then it works really great.

    This was a great addition to my home bar. It is easy to set up and easy to use and provides a great "cold" beer. I would like to have more options for kegs, but love this product and it adds to the look of my bar in my man cave!

    Received this as a gift for Christmas and it has been better than I expected. The beer stays cold and is always ready when you would like to set down and take a break. The quantity of the containers seem to last longer than first expected. I have mine setting on my bar and it is small enough that it does not take up much room.

    I love this gadget for cold pub style draft beer. You can pour the amount that you want and the rest stays fresh. Also love that it takes the beer from my fridge space and keeps it at a perfect temp on the counter. Also great for parties anywhere you have power!

    In order to use frequently, you have to go online and buy the connection hoses. Additionally, only supports Heineken and Newcastle kegs which can limit your beer options. Other than that, it is very practical for casual entertaining and works as expected. I would recommend this product.
