What do you think?

Rather expensive for what it is. But could be great for people in small spaces and if you really like heinken (or figure out how to fill the kegs yourself).

I registered for the sweepstakes. I'll see if I can refil it if I win one.

I see stuff like these all the time at BevMo and stuff. Pretty big ripoff if you ask me.

I saw a few commercials for it and immediately thought, "Waste of money"

279 bones - yikes. Built my kegorator for half that.

Rip off. But I guess if you really like Heineken and have spare cash around...

Plus you gotta get a new tube with each keg.

10 tubes per bag
Price: $11.99 + shipping and handling
Availability: In stock

BeerTender tubes connect the Heineken® or Heineken Premium Light® DraughtKeg™ to the BeerTender tap. A new tube must be used with each new DraughtKeg.

Yeah, waste.

Hey, has anyone had Heiny from those kegs? Is it any less skunked than when you have it in bottles? I can't drink the stuff normally because it tastes like I'm licking a skunk's gland.

Very wasteful...you can get a similar dispenser for the other minikegs for under $100.

New tubes means no beer lines to skunk or clean.

Actually, if you are not a homebrewer but like beer and live in an apartment and have 300 bucks to blow, this is a pretty cool device. Very high tech indeed. It is very popular in Holland.
