Draft Kegs

    Who has had one of the little draft kegs that are all the rage now? Everybody seems to have out their version. They proclaim to last for up to 30 days in the fridge. I have put off getting one because it's roughly 14 beers. That's three days tops at my place, so I figured what's the point.

    That is until I was in the store and came across a little keg of fresh Newcastle. Oh my dear goodness I am in heaven.

    They are pretty cool. I've got one in the mini-fridge in my workshop. Takes up less space than a 12-pack and there are no empties for the wife to count to dispose of when you're done.

    At some point in my life, I will have a full size kegorator in my house...

    I haven't tried the new mini drafts because I'm not too crazy about the price point. I can get a 24 pack of Miller Lite cans for $14.99 plus tax. The home draft systems seem to be selling for $20+ around here. That's 8 more beers for $5 less.

    I prefer the taste of draft beer, but not for that much of a surcharge. Kinda funny, considering draft beer is almost universally cheaper in bars (I realize the packaging in these home draft kits is likely the reason for the high price).

    Has Sam Adams started doing this yet?

    OK, I'll wait then...

    not just the packaging but the bars have the taps and the co2 pumps and reuse them numerous times. plus those are full kegs, more quantity, cheaper price. i thought these little draft kegs were like 20 beers, they are a bit overpriced. i remember first seeing the heineken kegs about 4 years ago.

    "Miller Lite" and "taste" should not be used in the same post.

    Actually for the Newcastle keg, it's the same price as a 12-pack but you get two-three more beers. I don't know if that was a special price or regular.

    you shut your gawd-dam mouth!

  10. I seem to recall mini-kegs when I was at UConn in the mid-to-late 90s. Dinklelacker (sp?) and Dab were the two that come to mind, and half of it ended on the floor during poker games because they would invariably tip over and the tap would fall out.

    I drink my beer out of a boot. I don't care where it comes from before that.
