Sick of overpriced pints from your local? Well, we’ve got the solution for you.
Aldi is now selling an at-home draft beer dispenser, and it’s almost half the price of the ones you can buy elsewhere.
The Philips Perfect Draft machine is compact and can sit alongside your coffee machine and toaster on the kitchen counter, meaning you can pour yourself a pub-quality beer whenever you fancy one.
It comes with a drip tray to combat any spillages, and connects to a keg just like your standard beer tap, in order to provide 30 days of fresh beer, which is chilled at three degrees celsius.
Plus, the machine has a chrome finish and a built-in LED display so that you can check your keg temperature and the volume of beer remaining.
What more could you want?!
Oh, wait, we know. There’s the small matter of the savings, too. You can grab a six litre keg to use in your machine for under £30 (£28.90). Can’t argue with that, can you?
The price of the Perfect Draft Machine is £189.99, which we’ll admit is still a splurge, but think of all the garden parties you can throw with real draft beer? And the cold ones you can pour yourself in the sun after a hard day of work?
Once you pay off the initial fee you’ll be laughing at all your mates spending a fortune down the pub.
It’s worth noting price still offers a whopping 42 percent off what the very same machine is being sold for elsewhere, too, so if you’ve been thinking about buying your own beer machine then now is very much your time.
You’ll have to buy your kegs separately from the machine itself, but there are loads of places you can get them from, and doing so actually ensures you can grab the best bargains possible every time.
Don’t know where to start? There’s a whole bunch of beers to browse through, here.
You’ll need to be quick if you want to bag the draft beer machine, as last year it sold out in minutes and Aldi is certain it won’t be around for long again this year.
You can bag it online now. Go, go, go!
Oh, and whilst we’re talking about beers, make sure you grab yourself a pack of Twisted’s Brewgooder IPAs too.
Stocked in Co-ops up and down the UK, the new brew has been made to support national food redistribution charity, FareShare, with the aim to help provide vital support to the growing number of people on the breadline, and also save some of the 1.3 billion tonnes of food we waste globally, year on year.
The beers cost £6.00 for a 330ml pack of four, and for each purchase, Twisted and Brewgooder will pay it forward, donating an item to a food bank, helping FareShare to continue its incredible work.
