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.

Freaker Bottle Koozies Have Style


The Freaker is a one-size-fits-all knit koozie that’s designed to keep your liquids insulated in style.

[The Freaker team isn’t] selling a product, they’re giving you an invitation to their party; a starter kit for a new lifestyle. The Freaker isn’t a strike-at-the-wind attempt to get rich, it’s the background music to a never-ending journey. Infusing life into a drink sweater, the FreakerTeam of madcap facilitators want to make sure you know that you’re invited to join in the fun.

From humble beginnings on Kickstarter (a trend that seems to be increasing in the world of beer accessories) Freaker now includes guest designs from the likes of MailChimp, design contest winners like Liberty Freak, and a total of 38 different designs that include The Dude, Purple Rain, The McFly, and the holiday themed Oprah. (Not sure about the connection between the holidays and Oprah, but I’m sure there’s a good story behind that one.)

If you frequently find yourself with a bottle in hand, but nothing between you and that brew, then check out Freaker and find one to suit your style.


Funston Backyard Party In A Box

Funston Fire Pit

The Funston from Shift Space Design is a combination fire-pit/ice-chest (with a built-in bottle-opener) that acts as a backyard party in a box.

Funston Ice Chest

When it’s cold outside, you can load it up with wood and keep the party going late into the night. Then, when it warms up again, just flip it over, load it with ice and a few brews, and invite your friends over.

What else could you ask for?

Alpina Mobile Beer Bar

Mobile Beer Bar

With a barbecue cook top on one side, room for glasses on the other, and a professional tap complete with glass washer in the center, the Mobile Beer Bar also includes a refrigeration system that will keep your beer cold for hours after its been unplugged, so you can party in places that electricity can’t go.
