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.

Draftmark Tap System Keeps Your Bud Cold

Draftmark Tap System

Following in the footsteps of the Heineken BeerTender and the Miller Home Draft, Anheuser-Busch recently announced the Draftmark Tap System, a new device that allows you to keep a gallon of Budweiser, Shock Top or Bass Pale Ale in your refrigerator, cold and ready to pour.

Sure, noting beats having your own kegerator at home that’s filled with your own home brew, but at least the big guys are doing something to bridge the gap between the average beer drinker and the future craft beer connoisseur.

Aliens Stole My Beer!

Big Beer Companies might not make the best brews, but they sure do know how to spend some marketing dollars!

Aliens Stole My Beer!

For their ‘Freshtival’, Miller teamed up with NERDWORKING, SigmaRD and Code Island to create Aliens Stole My Beer!, a contemporized version of the classic “shoot ’em up” game where players move their character with their own body movement via an infrared depth camera, similar to the way Microsoft’s Kinect works. To shoot at the aliens, players actually shout at the screen, which combines into a hilarious sight to see:
