    just cracked open one of those 5 litre heino kegs and after the initial highness of the gas i got a pint, i can safely say that i have yet to taste nicer, cleaner, purer heino. its absolutely beautiful.
    i would encourage all brothers to get some. dont mind the 'chill for 10 hours' thats written on it, just feck it in the deep freeze for 2 hours and enjoy.

    Seen these in tescos last week, how much are they?


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,971 ✭✭✭Holsten


    €20 I think.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,234 ✭✭✭Fresh Pots


    €21.99 in spar, can probably get them cheaper though.

    sorry lads i should have said that they are 20.99 in tesco, but someone mentioned over on bargain alerts that they are cheaper in centra stores

    I got one or two of them a while back and damn were they nice. I always left them in the fridge overnight. Much nicer than the 500ml cans.

    I totally agree. I chill mine for 24 hours (where possible). If they aren't cold enough the head is way too big.

    I agree with brother admiral - it is top notch Heineken. IIRC, I got one a while back in Superquinn for €18.99. I saw them in my local SuperValue yesterday - I must check the price as the shop is quite reasonable with beer prices.

    yep gotta agree that these are the job!
    i lash mine into the deep freeze for 2 hrs as well and they are perfect..... actually i better pick one up for tonight on the way home!


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,863 ✭✭✭✭crosstownk


    I got one on the way home from work - €20.99 and it was already chilled in a special Heineken fridge. Gonna crack it open once the Chinese arrives.........:D

    It is beautiful - I'm in the process of emptying one.

    Thank you for this thread, brother admiral.

    Just pouring myself and the oul lad a nice fresh pint from these little beauties, top notch.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,034 ✭✭✭✭It wasn't me!


    I have not borne witness to this sight, pray direct me to an appropriate vendor?

    Not being a heineken fan myself, do any brothers know if the stella artois kegs are still around? Also dunnes have kegs of something called bitteburg or something for €20. Anyone tried these out? Think I might get one for tomorrow night.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,212 ✭✭✭✭Tom Dunne


    bitteburg

    That's enough to put me off.

    Suppin' a few Lidl Perlenbacher right now, they are the job. €7 for 6x500ml bottles.

    agree with you there brother tom, i love that stuff, its sends me a little haywire though, i was seeing the little rabbits in tuxedos the last time i drank a skinfull of that

    You mean that rabbit isn't really there? :eek:

    yeah he is, your mind is just trying you tell he isnt. is he doing the charleston dance?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 16,793 ✭✭✭✭Hagar


    They sell coolers complete with taps for them over here. Sorta like this version here. Just slot the keg in like a cartridge in a fountain pen and away you go. About €120 I think but that includes your first keg. I'm sorely tempted brothers.

    No, the Macarena.

    OMG, it's worse than I thought.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 15,515 ✭✭✭✭admiralofthefleet


    sorely tempted? i be all over that like a rash on a hoors arse. do they ship to Ireland or can they be bought in france?

    edit: brother tom: you are fcuked, once the macerena kicks in its time for the men in white coats

    Just making my way through 2 of the Hino Kegs, and really like the look of the coolers - wonder do they do a bulk discount????...
    For the brotherhood - who's with me?

    I haven't seen them but if it's Bitburger, it's good German bier.

    Greetings brothers, First post on BG&RH. Hopefully my growing beer storage unit will allow me to fit in here.:D
    I was a great fan of the 5lt Heino kegs the last time they surfaced in Superquinn a few months back. Damn shop ran out of them too fast for my liking. At least I got my mits on 6 of those puppies and it's great to see them back. Heineken is my poison of choice so I'm a happy camper right now.
    With a bit of luck they might stay around. If so I'd be on for one of those coolers too.

    Cheers.:D


  • Hosted Moderators Posts: 9,945 ✭✭✭mik_da_man


    Just checked and shipping is about $120 for 2 coolers - which is NOT cheap :(
    hopefully we can get a better bulk discount


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 15,515 ✭✭✭✭admiralofthefleet


    keep us updated in this, i'm with you man. seriously. i want one of those
