    Hi there. Was wondering if there are any fellow Irish users of the above beer dispensing unit by Phillips. If so I am keen to know where you source your 6 litre kegs from and if you have any issues with customs and excise charges?

    Thank you. Do you remember what brands off hand you saw? Might be worth a trip up north!

    Hey OP,

    I got one of these beauts as a Christmas present from herself and love it.

    Did you ever figure out the best way to get the kegs? Parcel Motel/Addresspal won't send alcohol as I'm sure you now know.

    Did you find a shop up north that does em? Like in Newry?

    Happy New Year!

    No. Its gathering dust at home
    Bought it brand new and only have put 4 kegs through it. Leffe blonde, kwak, leffe ruby and hoegaarden. Most sellers will only ship to UK address and as you mention parcel motel or equivalents will not carry alcohol. Such a shame. I expect even Brexit will severely restrict UK users in sourcing their 6litre kegs.

    You can get them from Beerhawk (dotcodotuk)
    And checked their delivery and they ship to ROI for £5 :-) also have a lot of variety (and some money off first order is its not already on offer). Don't know about customs duties though

    The likelyhood from experience here is that they're ignorant of customs and once a few get siezed and they need to refund they'll stop shipping. Tens of different sites have at this stage.

    Have you ordered any kegs for this yet? Any experience with it?

    I really want to get a home keg system like this but sourcing the kegs is easily the hardest part.

    They no longer ship to Ireland regardless what their website says. I say that as a former customer who's perfect draft machine is gathering dust.

    Please do update us when it arrives. I've been looking at buying a PD for a while but it's getting the kegs that has put me off. Thanks

    Will do. Just got email thats it has been shipped so we'll see how long it takes! OH cant wait for a real pint! :D

    Just to remind everyone that importing alcohol into Ireland, without a special license, is illegal.

    With my business hat on, there’s obviously an opportunity here for one of our micro brewers. Alternatively, one of the better off-licences, like Martins in Fairview, might be a good place to ask if they could stock them.

    I have a Guinness tap here at home and managed to get a keg just before the lockdown. It's running low now though!

    I am looking to buy a perfect draft myself. Have a friend up North that can take delivery from beerhawk but after that would like to order kegs to my door. I see bier-wein.de have an option of delivery to Ireland but anybody ever order from these and if so did it get delivered?

    Hey I'm wondering are people managing to get the kegs delivered or are customs taking them. Thanks

    Good to see Hope Brewery and Martins keep an eye on this forum. :)

    Fair play to you and wishing you the best of success. Though check the website, it isnt working for me at the moment, it just goes to Shopify and says it is not yet set up.

    Is Perfect Draft a locked in system like Nespresso pods or is there a way for microbrewers to open up the kegs and fill them with their own product?
