What is PerfectDraft? PerfectDraft is a counter-top machine that serves bar quality beer. A 6-litre (10.5-pint) is inserted into the unit and cooled to a constant 3ºC. Then simply pour the perfect draught beer.
How long does beer keep? Beer keeps fresh for 30 days. A counter on the machine automatically counts down every day from 30.
What temperature does it keep the beer? PerfectDraft maintains the temperature at a steady 3ºC. From room temperature, a keg will take around 12 hours to cool to 3ºC. Kegs can be cooled in the fridge first. Fridge temperature is usually 6ºC. An LED indicator tells you the temperature of the beer.
How much does it hold? Each keg holds six litres, that’s around ten and a half pints. The machine has an LED indicator showing how much beer is left, so you can get the next keg ready.
Is it easy to change the kegs? Very! Simply remove the cap from the keg and click in the tap unit. A new hygienic comes with each keg. Feed the tube into the tap unit and click it into the machine. Wait till it cools and pour beer!
Does it need much cleaning? Every part that touches beer – the tube – is renewed with every keg. We recommend rinsing the tap unit every time you change the keg. Everything else just needs surface cleaning. The drip tray can be put in the dishwasher.

Is it noisy? The machine is very quiet, but there is a noise just after pouring beer. That’s the machine maintaining pressure. This also happens briefly when not pouring beer to maintain pressure.
Can I customise my machine? Yes! The tap handle has a removable magnetic medallion, that can be swapped for others. Medallions are available at beerhawk.co.uk and other places on the internet. We’ve also seen skins that cover the chrome parts of the machine.
Are there different models of machine? There is just one machine. The model number changes every year, but that’s just a technicality.
Do the kegs fit any other machine? No, you need the Phillips PerfectDraft machine to use the kegs.
Can I swap kegs before I finish them? Yes, it’s easy to swap kegs. They’ll stay fresh for 30 days. We recommend, however, keeping the same keg in the machine until it is finished.
How much space do you need? Including the drip tray and the tap handle, the machine measures: Width 28.6cm Height: 44.4cm Depth: 49.3cm Phillips recommends leaving a 10cm space around the machine.
“Each keg holds six litres, that’s around ten and a half pints. The machine has an LED indicator showing how much beer is left, so you can get the next keg ready.”
Which beers can I get? There are more than 35 beers to choose, from breweries around the world. New beers are added all the time. The range includes Belgian classics, crisp lagers, craft beers, hoppy IPAs and German wheat beers. Breweries include Leffe, Budweiser, Becks, Tiny Rebel, Spaten, Hoegaarden, Kwak and Stella Artois.
Where can I get the kegs from? In the UK, the kegs can be ordered from beerhawk.co.uk. It offers next day delivery. They usually cost between £27.50 and £35.
What do I do with the kegs? We want them back! Beer Hawk offers a free posting service – just box them up and take them to one of the many CollectPlus drop off points. They’ll even give you £5 of Beer Tokens towards your next beer as an incentive. Find out more here.
