The long-anticipated Specialbuys home beer tap will be available to purchase from Sunday 16th May, after being pushed back by two weeks. The £200 option is part of Aldi's sellout garden range and comes £350 cheaper than Amazon's Phillips Draft Beer Dispenser.
But with pubs allowing punters indoors from Monday 17th May, surely we're all fed up with drinking at home?
Apparently not - the online exclusive product has been "delayed" and it has a limit of one unit per customer due to its popularity. There's no option to pre-order it either, so if you want it, you'll need to be poised on the website ready for it's release on Sunday. And if pubs experience another shortage of draft beer due to a surge in demand, having your own supply of cold ones on tap might not be a bad idea.
I guess a well-chilled, frothy-topped beer is the perfect accompaniment to your BBQ food. And this year, BBQs have also been flying off the shelves due to the coronavirus guidelines allowing us to mingle outside.
Describing the product, Aldi says: "There is nothing better than a refreshing cold glass of beer and what better way to have it than in the comfort of your own home with the Philips Perfect Draft Machine.
"This draft machine provides up to 30 days of fresh beer and chilled to 3°C. Its robust design has a solid insulation and features an LCD display so you can keep track of the temperature, volume and freshness of your beer, whatever the weather. Please note: Kegs not included."
Amazon is selling their Phillips Beer Dispenser as a bundle with a 6 litre Corona draft keg and a 6 litre Leffe Blonde keg for £614.39. Granted, you can't get the kegs to go with the machine at Aldi currently, but you can buy just the kegs from Amazon separately and it would still be way cheaper than buying the bundle.
