MillerCoors used to sell Coors Light Home Draft and Miller Light Home Draft "kegs" at my local grocery store, but I have not seem them in a long time.

The reason I ask is because these units are very similar to the Tap-A-Draft, which is designed for local brewery take-home as well as for home brewers.

If you can find a way to get rid of the Miller or Coors beer, it's a much better deal to just buy the full one at the grocery store for $18, since a tap and empty bottle at the home brew store is $43 plus shipping. But alas, they have disappeared from stores in Charlotte, NC.

I think that in at least selected areas, distributors report the MillerCoors product has been discontinued. But the product still shows on the Wal-Mart site, and shows on the MillerCoors "Innovation" page.

Does anyone live near a store that still carries these?

Dale - it's very well presented but I'm not sure it's a good question. You want to find where this item is available. I can tell you that it's not available in Norway. Even in the US if someone tells you it's available 1000 miles away, will that really help? –  mdma Mar 3 '13 at 3:21
    
I travel, so anywhere in the US would be helpful to me. Also, the question may help inform a home brewer that wanted an alternative to bottling; it may not have been obvious walking past this item in the grocery store that it could be re-used for home brew. –  Dale Mar 5 '13 at 2:24
    
Travelling, ok, that's fair enough. :) –  mdma Mar 5 '13 at 2:28

Dallas, Texas; San Diego, California; Jacksonville, Florida; Phoenix, Arizona; Denver, Colorado and Columbus, Ohio.

Here is their website on it: http://www.coorslight.com/innovations/homedraft.aspx

They are currently only in test markets. You can find out more info on their Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Coors-Light-Home-Draft/120696661275064

I actually found a Facebook app to locate them. http://apps.facebook.com/homedraftlocator/

impressive find! –  mdma Mar 8 '13 at 22:05
    
but the facebook link seems to be unavailable now. –  mdma Mar 9 '13 at 2:37
    
Awesome. The second link tells me that they have them at some grocery stores around here! I can't believe it. I've been into 4 or 5 grocery stores and haven't seen them. –  Dale Mar 10 '13 at 5:26
    
This worked for the first link:facebook.com/pages/Coors-Light-Home-Draft/… –  Dale Mar 10 '13 at 5:29
    
The finder app is wrong (says they are in Charlotte, NC), but I know on my next trip though Jacksonville, I will be stopping to get some. –  Dale Mar 14 '13 at 0:52
