A keg holds eight litres of beer.
Depending on the country, Blade kegs can be ordered from our website or from the local Heineken beer distributor.
The full range of available beers is listed in the BEERS section of our website. The selection of beers we offer may vary depending on the country, and we’ll be introducing new beer brands over time.
Each keg is delivered in a box. The box dimensions are: 209 x 215 x 381,5 mm.
Store the keg on a cool place and pre-cool the kegs at least 16 - 20 hr prior to use. The beer should be pre-chilled down to 4 ⁰C.
No. The keg should not go below zero degrees as this may damage the packaging and cause beer leakage. You will no longer be able to use the keg once frozen.
Cooling down a beer keg directly in the BLADE appliance will take more than 24 hours. If you did not pre-cool your keg, you will be able to pour your first chilled beers after 3 or 4 hours. After that, you can pour every hour around 1 litre of beer.
Once a keg is open, you have to keep it in your Blade appliance. You can store the open keg for up to 30 days. This will keep the beer at the right pressure and freshness. You can take the keg out before it is empty, but once removed it should not be consumed.
No, the keg is specifically designed to be used with Blade. The beer inside the keg needs to be kept under controlled pressure, otherwise the beer will not be the quality you would expect. Piercing a keg is only allowed when the keg is fully empty and disconnected from the appliance.
No, the 8 litre beer keg is designed specifically for the Blade appliance.
The kegs are sturdy, but they could leak if they freeze or they are punctured. If you have a keg that was leaking when you received it, please contact your local Customer Service.
Blade is an 8-litre countertop draught dispenser that provides a freshly tapped beer.
Depending on the country, Blade can be ordered directly from the Heineken Local Draught beer organisation or online on www.blade.shop.
Dimensions including drip tray are the following: 590 x 290 x 471 mm (h x w x d).
17,6 kg (26 kg including a keg).
Blade is not battery powered. Blade must be plugged into the wall mains with a 2 meter power cable.
When a beer keg is loaded in Blade, it should stay plugged in. We recommend unplugging the appliance when it does not have a keg installed.
The energy consumption will be approximate 0,8 kWh per day. This is comparable to a 35 Watt lamp in your outlet.

The temperature gauge uses a sensor to indicate the temperature on the exterior of the keg. The optimum drinking temperature is when the pointer of the temperature gauge is at the bottom of the scale. Note: use only pre-cooled kegs at a temperature of 3-4 ⁰C.
The Blade appliance chills to 2 °C and cannot be set to any other temperature.
No. You will hear the fan at the back of the cooling system when the appliance is cooling the keg.
No. You will hear the air pump inside the appliance during pouring. After closing the tap, the pump will be in operation till the controlled pressure is reached. This can take a few seconds.
Unplug Blade before cleaning the inside and outside with a soft cloth. Use a damp cloth to clean the cover and a dry cloth to clean the cooling chamber. Blade should never be immerged in water. Harsh cleaning agents may damage the appliance.
Clean the drip tray with warm, soapy water after every use.
We recommend cleaning the tap every time you load a new beer keg to avoid contamination and mixing different beers.
The Blade user manual is delivered with the appliance. You can also download it in the HOW IT WORKS section.
