Default Looking for wood cask alternative

Having a big party this summer and want to wow the crowd. I make a hell of a helles, if I say so myself, and would like to serve it poolside from the cask. Is there a product out there that mimics a traditional wood cask? I want to use it for lagering, carbing (with sugar) and serving. I DO NOT want to use a corny or standard keg and/or my CO2. Any ideas?

like these!

Northern Brewer sells metal casks and all the stuff to dispense from them. Its under kegging, then choose casks.

You could always go big and order a real wooden keg from Germany. http://www.fass-schmid.de/holzfaesser.html
Here is a place that sells new and used wooden beer kegs and accessories. The prices include VAT which you wouldn't have to pay if they were shipped to the US. Shipping might be pretty steep. http://www.weinfassversand.de/Shop/p...ichenfass.html

Will an oak barrel stand the pressure of carbonating in it?

If you're talking 2vol of CO2 then I'm sure it would, thats how they used to do them all in the old days. You'll have to secure the bung tightly as it carbs (pound it in with a mallet). The metal casks are a sure bet of course. I've done British bitters as a cask conditioned ale (dry hopped and fined) and the stuff is fantastic. Sure to impress.

That's exactly what I'm talking about.

There is the video for the Pullman Handpump Northern brewer sells, its a beer engine that you can just connect to a regular corny. It looks fantastic, I think its going to be the Xmas gift I end up giving myself.
