Drawing a brewski is going high-tech. The BeerTender keeps a mini-keg of Heineken at just the right temperature. The appliance from Krups is glossy black keg with an LCD display, which warns if the brew supply is running low. The beer fridge is already available in Europe and was introduced to the U.S. market at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. A Heineken official says the BeerTender will keep a five-liter keg, a little more than a gallon, fresh tasting for 30 days. It goes on sale March 1st and will cost $400.
