SPOILS COOL IDEA

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Travel -

KEEP­ING beer cool is a se­ri­ous sub­ject for blokes, es­pe­cially dur­ing scorch­ing Aus­tralian sum­mers, so we’ll drink to any­thing that comes to the res­cue. The Princess Beer Tap & Cooler ($249) is the first of a se­ries of elec­tri­cal gad­gets about to be re­leased by Dutch com­pany Princess House­hold Ap­pli­ances. It works with a five-litre Heineken draught keg and guar­an­tees chilled beer on tap ev­ery time. The cooler runs on 240-volt or 12-volt power and stays chilled for at least 10 hours af­ter it has been un­plugged. It’s por­ta­ble, easy to clean and can be con­nected to a car’s cig­a­rette lighter, so it can be taken into the wilds for fish­ing, camp­ing and boat­ing trips.

It will also chill bot­tles of wine or cans of soft drink. Avail­able from Har­vey Norman and Myer stores. www.princess.nl.
