Father's Day is Sunday 3rd of Sept 2017 in Australia

Dads Cop A Raw Deal On Birthdays, Father's Day and Christmas

When you compare the gifts they generally receive for their special day compared to what Mum gets you see it's true. Is it because we love our fathers less? Of course not! We simply don't make as big a fuss and part of the reason (for me and the friends I asked anyway) is that I simply can never think what to get him. 

My Dad is a lot like me in many respects, he isn't one to covet expensive material possessions, he has just retired and he has had an entire working life to fill the garage and shed  with all the power tools, outdoor activity equipment, fishing gear etc he could ever need. 

What do you give the dad who has everything? iKegger

So I usually aim to give my Dad an experience, he has been hang-gliding, had nice meals, cruises, and for his 60th birthday this year, we got him a sky dive.

But those are done and dusted in an hour (or a minute if you're falling out of a plane) and sometimes you just want to give him something he can physically unwrap, something he can proudly show his friends and something he will actually use in his day to day life...

Well my Dad, most of his mates and my family, love beer. They meet at the pub, they have beers around a bbq, they go fishing and take a few beers with them. That's why the iKegger range is the ultimate father's day gift.

  Family BBQ

Whether the father you are buying for likes a quiet beer or two at home or is a passionate home brewer with a full kegging system in the basement, there are not many guys out there who wouldn't love to be able to pull a mini keg out of the fridge or esky and pour a fresh tapped beer wherever they are.

Plus:

  • Free up fridge space at home. The same volume of beer takes up half the space and weight of bottles when it's in our mini kegs.
  • Take beers to the beach / boat / park etc but leave the bottles / cans and other rubbish at home so you don't have to clean up afterwards. (these can just be poured into the keg and will stay fresh and frothy till finished thanks to the CO2 tap systems).
  • Don't need to get up during the footy. Our growlers (or kegs with insulation sleeves) stay cold for hours meaning fresh tapped beer couch-side for the whole game. 
  • Let him take his homebrew anywhere and still serve it tapped from a keg.
  • Be able to fill them with special beers only available on tap from hundreds of breweries and bars around Australia and the world.
  • If he's a homebrewer and uses 19L kegs our 4L kegs are perfect for the leftover from a standard 23L brew.
  • Help the environment by saving on disposable packaging.
  •  Have beers by the pool with no danger of broken bottles.

I have a full bar set up with superchiller and tap beer, can I fill these units up directly from the tap?

What an excellent idea. Love the Johnson’s, makes taking beer to a party easy and provides an awesome talking point.
Ice cold beer for 12hrs without carrying ice, sheer brilliance.

The Tap King System Failed, Here's Why... Plus The Solution!
The Tap King System Failed, Here's Why... Plus The Solution!

by David Thackray 2 Comments

Launched in 2013  Tap King looked like being a decent option for people wanting to have beer on tap at home. After buying the plastic dispenser and a 3.2L disposable plastic bottles of a select range of beers you simply took them home, chilled them and then attached them to the dispenser to have beer on tap in the fridge.

On paper I'm sure their marketing team thought it sounded like a good idea. I don't know of a single beer drinker who wouldn't want "frosty cold, perfectly poured beer" on tap in their kitchen, bbq area or home bar.
