Cool, so it basically a party big in a box filled with **** beer. What kind of CO2 cartridges does it take?

I like how it has an On and Off.

Like someone would just stand there waiting for beer to just drop out of the spout.

Leland Limited: Small High Pressure Cylinders makes small co2 cartridges in a variety of sizes and form factors, they also make the mini-regulator that Williams Brewing sells. A 6L tap-a-draft uses 2 16g co2 cartridges so I'm betting it would take a 30g cart for this 5.7L version. Someone needs to buy one and feed the swill to someone else and take one apart for measurements of the co2 cart.

This draft system is doomed to failure if they're really charging $20 for 5.7L of domestic beer. The equivalent of a 16-pack of 12oz beers for $20? You can get those mini 5L kegs for $18 filled with imports like Warsteiner and Paulaner. Let's see... $1.30 per 12oz of Paulaner or $1.25 per 12oz of Coors Light "draft?" This thing would have to be $12 to per on par with the cost of 12-pack bottles or $10 to be on par with the cost of those 30-pack cube o' cans.

Yeah, I still am a fan of the 5L german mini-kegs for refilling. Works great for dispensing real ale and bringing it to parties. And thoes are only $15-17, making the coors way overpriced, IMHO.

But it's DRAFT BMC-lite, so you have to compare it to BMC-lite at the local dive purchased by the 13 ounce pint.

Widmer has their hefeweizen in 5Ls for $20.

It looked very similar to the party pigs I've seen online, and I was wondering if anyone's tried converting these into a usable device. I believe it only costs 20$ and might be worth a try! Thanks for the feedback guys!
This is not a Party Pig. . . this is another model of Tap-A-Draft, made as a disposable unit. You won't be able to reuse it. . . you would be better off buying a reusable Tap-A-Draft.

Tap-A-Draft uses 2 8-gram CO2 cartridges. This Draft-Beer box uses 1 16-gram CO2 cartridge.
