I’ve got a keg of hoegardden in at the moment. It definitely makes you drink a bit more,I’ve move mine to the garage on weekdays to stop the ease of pulling a pint when I walk past it

Definitely. Been making my breakfast a few times next to it and found myself thinking a pint would be good right about now before reminding myself it's 8am on a Tuesday :lol:

This is the exact reason I’m not getting one. Bad enough if I go to the fridge and there’s a rogue bottle sitting.

My beer hawk delivery has been held up. Are there any shops in West Lothian selling kegs? I’m headed that way for work tomorrow so I could stop off. The only other stockists I know are wallyford or drylaw and they’re a bit out the way

Don't think they have any in just now. Shop has been passed on to new owners and the old owners are looking to set up elsewhere.

I’ve not been in since December when I sent this snap to a mate who was getting stressed about his Yodel delivery

I ended up biting the bullet and going down to drylaw. Got 3 Stella to tide me over but now the delivery is about to arrive so I’ll end up with 6 to see me through. If going to drylaw I’d advise waiting for daylight, it’s a bit rough to say the least 😂

 

got a jupiler, hertog jan and a spaten arriving today

They had limited stock of Stella and Leffe Blonde in a week or so ago.

Leffe's always been hit-or-miss for me, seems like a "batching" thing. I imagine on draught it's divine, though.

It's not something I regularly drink from bottles so haven't noticed this.

Drank a lot of it when my brother lived in Bruxelles, though, and the PD draught variety is delicious. Strong mind.

The Leffe Blonde is one of my favourites for sure. I'm finishing off a keg of La Virgen that my father-in-law gave me cos he didn't like it and I'm keen to get that finished so that I can get on to the La Trappe.

It certainly is, drink it in a Brussels boozer when we go over to watch Molenbeek.

Was in there yesterday but didn't fancy lugging one on the bus. :lol: 

 

Only had Stella, Bud and Corona though. Stella is the only one I'd really buy out those 3 and that was £34 which I thought was a bit steep.

I've taken the plunge and just bought a PD machine.

 

I notice it says its height is 444mm.  Is that the height of the section that holds the keg or is it the tap?

 

Cheers

Got it on Beer Hawk this afternoon. Theyve been releasing limited number of machines this week. If you sign up to their alert message on there website, they send you an email when they are releasing machines for sale.

Thanks mate. I had signed up for the alerts but was only 2 or 3 weeks ago so I'm guessing I'm way down the list! Might just hold off as once the boozers open in England next month I should imagine availability is better and demand reduces. They've whacked the price up about £50 since last year too as it used to be £199.99. Can understand it, supply and demand etc!

They don't at the moment, just Subs and Torps. He's trying to get an account sorted atm, so should start selling them soon.

Just pulled the trigger on a PD machine. Such an impulse buy 😍

 

You won't regret it.  It pours a fantastic pint.

 

Will really get the benefit of it in the summer having a BBQ and a few cold ones in the sunshine.

Just had an offer accepted on a new house today. It has a garage which is primed for a bar. Might need to buy a 2nd machine.

I might buy a new house so that I can justify a 2nd machine. 😄

She usually has a lager on the Sub while I tank the Leffe on the PD.

I've just had to really think about how many hours it is.

I can't seem to find a PD or Sub anywhere. 

 

Anybody recommend where I could possibly get one?

Online beer hawk seem to have the market cornered in the UK. Go to their site and sign up to be notified of when they have stock. Couple of weeks ago I hot an email from them. Read it 2 hours after they sent it and it was still sold out again whrn I tried to purchase so its just your luck if you read the email straight away or not!

Google “ perfect draft tennents starter bundle” top hit is a broken link to the beer hawk site. If it’s not tennents someone’s winding everyone up

 

I’d post a screen shot if I was competent
