Happy International Beer Day. Yep, today, Friday 5 August is, according to the official International Beer Day website, "a global celebration of beer, taking place in pubs, breweries, and backyards all over the world. It’s a day for beer lovers everywhere to raise a toast to our brewers and bartenders and rejoice in the greatness of beer."
So could there be a more perfect time to buy this Philips Perfect Draft Machine from Aldi? We think not.
It'll make a fantastic gift-to-self, or the beer-lover in your life. At £189.99, it's not cheap, but it'll provide hours – no years – of fun.
Why we rate it
On hot days, there's nothing more satisfying than relaxing in your garden, a pint of perfectly chilled draft beer in your hand.
And the Philips Perfect Draft Machine not only provides up to 30 days of fresh beer, but it'll chill it to a crisp 3°C.
With a robust design and solid insulation, it has an LCD display, meaning you can check on the temperature, volume and freshness of your beer. We're loving the real tap handle too, giving an authentic pub vibe.
There's also a removable drip tray which is dishwasher-friendly and the machine opens at the front so you can change your kegs (NB: kegs are not included). Plus, it comes with a two-year guarantee/warranty.
What the reviews say
Many shoppers reference the fact that this gadget offers the perfect pint – and at a much lower price point than a lot of other retailers, it's a great deal, too.
"Excellent product, everywhere else it was a £100 more, pity Aldi don’t sell the kegs too."
"Perfect Draft. The system and the service are both first class. Machine came in good time and works perfectly."
"Bought this for my husband's birthday, really pleased with it! Chills to a perfect temperature and the beer tastes just as good as the pub!"
"We recently went to friends birthday party and they had a similar machine, however, theirs was three times more expensive. This beauty does exactly the same, and honestly, I don’t know why we hadn’t bought one sooner. The kegs are easy to install, there’s a choice of beer to suit all tastes available from Beerhawk (other vendors available) and pours a chilled beer effortlessly. Delivery was a couple of days, with updates regularly; totally recommend 100%."
"So good l ordered another one."
