Beacon lights a path to beer

Lighted dispenser could help avoid injury

BarFly

It's St. Patrick's Day, of course, and we must pay homage accordingly. So even though this doesn't exactly qualify as a traditional gadget, we're guessing that it will be of some interest on this hallowed occasion.

The lighted beer dispenser is arguably a safety device as well as a practical home appliance, for its illumination can help prevent injurious mishaps. "A beacon for the thirsty," as Ubergizmo calls it, standing more than 21 inches tall.

The dispenser comes in a choice of black or chrome to avoid clashing with the rest of your decor. (We can picture it fitting quite naturally in some of our acquaintances' living rooms.) It even includes a plastic receptacle for ice or cold water to keep its precious contents chilled. Brilliant!
