Looking for a mobile keg system for tailgating
 
I'm an avid sports fan and do a lot of tailgating with my buddys. I was looking for some type of mobile kegerator system that would be more convenient to bring with me to games. We used to use the ol bucket of ice trick but that gets a bit old and if you leave your site, you're beer stays behind. I've found jockeyboxes which seem cool but it's still not completely portable. I just found something on ebay that looks interesting. It's a completey mobile cart with 4 tires and steering, c02 operated, has a keg coat to keep the beer cold. Looks a bit expensive but it's the only device I've found that really fits the bill! Is there anything else like this people have found? Oh, here's the link of what i've found.

Portable Kegerator Cart w/ 10" Tires - eBay (item 250312709921 end time Oct-31-08 12:50:38 PDT)

You could probably build something like that for cheaper.

Yea I probably could buy some parts and make one. The addon truck hitch would be cool though too as i'd never have to remove it from the back of the truck and still dispense beer. Hmmm, decisions!

My friend Pat made this:

The Northern Brewer Homebrew Forum :: View topic - Portable Kegerator

Holds two three gallon kegs. It is pretty damn awesome.

That's pretty damn cool. From the threads, it looks like the 3 gallon kegs are expensive and hard to come by. But the concept is much like the jockeybox but with the C02 tank and all other parts included.

Look at this month's BYO magazine. Beermuncher has a very nice article about his rolling keggerator he made to hold 3 kegs. It would probably be perfect for what you want.

It is also probably here on the site but I am too tired to effectively use the search function....

I have two KegLoves which are mentioned in this thread:

EdWort has some cute taps mounted on QDs, I have seen an ad for them in BYO. You can also get a paintball tank adapter to use a standard regulator if you don't want to haul around a 5# tank.

It's not as cool as EdWort's trailer mounted coolerator, but I don't have that many friends. :D

i've been planning on incorporating a 4 tap jockey box with a dolly. i'll take a piece of plywood and place that at the bottom to hold the four kegs with the co2 tank in the middle. i'll use a ratchet strap to cinch those together and hold them to the dolly. then i'll find a way to clamp the cooler to the dolly above that. i was thinking u-bolts through the cooler, but we'll see. i'm hoping to have it done by this weekend, so i'll post some pictures.

Nice, I'd like to see your creation! Post some pictures when you got it done. I'm gathering all the ideas i've seen thus far. When my Patriots make the playoffs I want to have something ready to rock at Gillette Stadium :)

I've been monitoring that portable kegerator with 10" tires ebay listing. I know i can't build something that nice so i may just pull the trigger. I've got 5 people we'll prob split the cost. Price i see dropped by a couple hundred so it's getting more plausable.

It's Biermuncher, not beermuncher. Here's his rolling kegorator thread.
