The best thing you could give Dad this Father's Day would be a vast supply of fine beer -- then again, the worst thing you could give him would be a giant, leaking trashcan in his kitchen. Don't let this mind-bending paradox rattle you: get him the Heineken BeerTender by Krups.
The BeerTender's a sleek, future-tastic accessory for the DraughtKeg, the 5-liter, industry-first wonder that, thanks to a patented internal CO2 system, keeps Heineken and Heineken Premium Light fresh for 30 days after tapping. How the 'Tender works: it's outfitted with a sneaky-quiet Peltier cooling element, so it can be kept on the counter instead of in the fridge, where Dad's friends couldn't properly admire it; it also sports an authentic barroom tap, allowing even imperfect men to master the perfect pour (there's also a removable spillage tray, for when the perfection gets to be too much). Upping the "damn, Irv, that's a pretty sweet machine your son gave you" factor: an LCD control panel for instant reads on temperature, freshness, and volume, so Dad'll never suffer the shame of hyping up made-in-2009 technology, only to find he's out of made-since-1873 beer.
The BeerTender's available at high-end retailers across the country, and high-end e-tailers across the Internet. Hit BeerTender.com for a rotating display that makes this slick product look like a beautiful supermodel -- another gift Dad would love, if only it wouldn't get him kicked out of the house and into a giant, leaking trashcan on the street.
This guy comes with four 8oz glasses, a foam skimmer, and a Guide to the Perfect Draught Pour. Get Dad all that good stuff at BeerTender.com
