Perfect Draft Machine

Hello,

Does anyone know a store that sells the Perfect Draft beer machine in CH or close to the border?
There seems to be many places that sell the kegs but none that sell the machine itself
TIA

The only ones I found are online shops in Euroland, I'm sure some will post to CH.

Re: Perfect Draft Machine

What are the best places to the kegs in CH (anywhere in ZH?)
Can we also return the empty kegs there?
Many thanks
Kind regards

What type of kegs and what type of beer?

I have loads of 20 and 30L kegs of craft beer, some KeyKegs, some normal Swiss fitting aluminium kegs that I can't serve right now (obviously). Let me know what you want and I might be able to help you.

Re: Perfect Draft Machine

I'd like to understand where can I buy and return the empty kegs (to get the deposit) afterwards. I used to live in Luxembourg and almost all supermarkets sell kegs and Philips machine.
Kind regards

Orval is one of my favorite beers. Good name! If I had a keg of that, I would need a new liver in just a few days...

If I remember correctly, Orval doesn't offer draft outside of the monastery. I'd love to be proven wrong! But yes, absolutely and definitely among my top beers too. I love also how the brettanomyces changes the beer as it ages.

I'd love to visit. When we were last in London, we had an aged Orval and it was simply, just fantastic.

Nice profile pic! Next time you are in Bern, make sure you visit the best beer pub in CH: http://www.autrappiste.ch/au-trappiste/ueber-uns/

Re: Perfect Draft Machine

Hi guys, indeed...Im a beer lover. I visited all trappistes monasteries in Belgium and Holland...
Now that I've moved to ZH Im struggling a lit bit to find old school beers.

Back to my question: does anyone know where can I buy and return kegs in CH? As the weather is getting warm it would be nice to have a perfect draft machine...but I haven't found kegs in CH with a reasonable price...

Cheers!

.
There seems to be some confusion in this thread: „perfectdraft“ is a system. A smallish refrigerated keg holder that keeps the beer good for longer than a normal draft machine. But you need to buy the matching kegs, a bit like nespresso... and yes, the per liter price is high. However, it’s international so you can get anything from a German Altbier to a Belgian Trappist. Wasn’t aware that Orval has them, the standard seems to be Leffe (if we ignore the Stella...)

Hi Orval, I used to live in Southern Holland and I know how poor the beer scene in Switzerland is, comparing to where we came from. I own a Perfect Draft, as well, so I know the struggle.

Answer to your question: Rio Getränke in Wallisellen has a limited offer of PErfect Draft, but they have. You can find Hoegaarden, Leffe, Stella Artois, Beck's, Löwenbräu and Franziskaner, around CHF26-28 per keg + CHF 5 pfand.

I've asked in another Rio Getränke shop in Dietikon, they didn't have it in the store, but one could order.

And that's it, even in German shops across the border it's quite hard to find them.
