Default Beer2Go - Backwoods Version

My little 3 Gallon corny is turning out to be pretty versatile. I found my neoprene insulating sleeve in storage after 7 years. Whoo Hoo. Now it can go Off Road!

Here we have the keg.


Here it is with the neoprene insulating sleeve.


Here it is in the back pack. Note, there's even more room on the sides to put more foam rubber for more insulation during the hike.


Finally, here it is all closed up and ready to roll. The side pockets will contain the mini CO2 charging system and cartridges as well as the beer line with a picnic faucet.


This will come in very handy where the Beer2Go portable kegerator can't go. Plus it is a bit more inconspicuous.

YOU need to find someone who has that packing foam material (that makes form fitting foam packaging for shipping) and have them make you up a form fitting package that will hold your gel ice packs and corney keg in that pack.

It's closer to 9 years old. I bought it and the keg new from Williams Brewing.

Interesting. Hmm... Perhaps the foam packing peanuts would work as well.

it wouldnt be too hard to use the foam. then you could take it out as one piece. Line the inside of hte backpack with one plastic bag, the put the corny in the middle with another bag around it. pour the foam in and let it expand to one piece thats easily removed.

we do this alot with parts we ship out. im just bringing this up because foam peanuts have a tendency to go everywhere but where you want them
