  • Heineken & Newcastle Brew Lock System

    Is or has anyone used or installed any of these yet? I searched the whole forum and did not
    see it mentioned anywhere



    Home - Brewlock System


    The beer is really much better tasting (only did Heineken, dont like Newcastle lol)

    None of my accounts have had it put in yet in my territory,but I am hoping one will soon.
    Other techs at my distributor have so far

    Seen it, installed it, tried it. Simply a modified bag in the box system. I don't see this a viable system in Virginia because of the cost of the compressor and proprietary keg coupler. Who's going to pay for the compressor and coupler and installation fee? Had they simply modified the coupler to use existing gas source, it would be a much more restaurant friendly system.

    Do agree that the beer is better because no outside gases are introduced.

      I dont see the over all savings as being enough if only doing 1 or 2 lines ... until a lot more breweries start
      doing this, I really dont see many (of my accounts any way) forking over the something like $350 per line

        Welp, had to install a couple at buffalo wild wings, pretty straight forward, and got lucky on not having to drill any holes into a brand new cooler to run the air/gas lines, trunk line wasn't full and they sprayed some ex-panda foam to seal it up, just chiseled some away and viola lol the one officially opens tomorrow on Richmond Hwy in Alexandria VA

              Hello

              I am also looking for the Brewlock compressor for my Heineken David unit, We have a Home Bar, bought the Unit over 3 years ago, Heineken are no help with conversion. I have a garden full of old steel 20L David Kegs, they do not even help me to dispose of these.

              Anyone know how i can retorfit the the David unit my self?

              Thanks

                Hi there everyone, just signed up here to try and get some help. I have recently got my hands on a David Unit and looking to convert to the Brewlock set up instead of the standard external CO2 bottle set up. Doesn’t look like any of you guys have had any replies. Was wondering if anyone has had any luck since posting here. Hope you can offer some info guys. All the best and merry Xmas ...

                    Hi guys

                    Like you I have struggled to get a response from Heineken on compressor kit or even a part number to convert my David unit.

                    My plan now is just to convert it to regular Kegorator using a new standard keg coupler, that way I can choose any beer that my local drink distributer can supply in 1/4 Kegs

                    My david unit came with a broken dispenser hose (snapped off at the nozzle).

                    Has anyone got one they can cut off an old Keg and send to me so i can mock this all up, I will cover postage obviously

                    My plan is to put a parts list together and how to guide so others can do the same if they want.
