Default 110 degrees, 120 gallons of homebrew

Just got back last week from Burning Man, where we set up a free bar in the middle of the desert. My contribution was 120 gallons of homebrew: 60 Sterling Gold, and 60 of assorted whatever else I felt like.



Lots of dusty, thirsty folks came by for a cold one, and it was a pleasure to see the look on their faces when they got a beer that wasn't just cold, but tasty too.

Yay for real beer!

The red thing on the right (between the cornies and the bar itself) is a jockey box that ate huge quantities of ice, but did a fine job keeping the beer cold.

An "arts festival" that happens every year in the middle of Nevada.

The Burning Man Project :: Welcome Home

Sufficiently unique that I'd say everyone should go at least once in their lives - doesn't work for everybody, but if it clicks for you you'll have an awesome time.

120 gallons! That's awesome! Well done!

I think you captured the true spirit of burning man.
