Convert a Big Beer Draft System Into A Home Brew Mini Keg

Coors Light Home Draft

One good thing about the Heineken BeerTender, the Miller Home Draft and the Anheuser-Busch Draftmark Tap System is that with a little elbow grease, home brewers can turn them into mini travel kegs.

By removing the label, filling with beer and then recharging the CO2, you can have a gallon of your favorite brew at your disposal, ready for picnics, BBQs, parties and more.

The Danville Beer Club put together a great step-by-step instruction guide to help you through the process of converting a Miller Home Brew, and it’s surprisingly easy once you’re familiar with the pieces and parts that make up the system.

The Bräuler Reinvents The Growler

It’s always interesting to see a company rethink a product that has been the same for as long as anyone can remember, which is why I was intrigued by The Bräuler from The Zythos Project.

The Brauler

According to them, the Bräuler is the world’s first tough-as-nails, customizable, lifetime-guaranteed, stainless steel modular growler system for breweries, brewpubs, beer bars, home brewers, home consumers, and grocery retailers.

Brauler Caps

Compared to standard glass growlers, The Bräuler is:

Superior to glass

  • Durable and safe: Food grade steel won’t shatter, chip, or crack
  • Lighter weight for shipping and owner transport

Better for Your Beer

  • Wide (1.75”) mouth easy to fill and clean
  • 100% light-proof; deep-thread cap holds carbonation and freshness longer
  • Unique machined exterior collar receives multiple accessories, including basic cap, handle, bail top, and a CO2-chargeable draft cap system

More Sustainable

  • 100% recyclable as a desirable metal
  • No loss due to breakage. Life cycle is longer than glass

  • Perfect for car camping and backpacking. Carabiner ready!

More Affordable

  • If you manage to break The Bräuler, they’ll replace it at no charge
