So we were chatting about a decent low tech way of keeping the lines cold and I think we are just going to add another 6' or so to the lines and coil them in the bottom of the canoe and cover with ice. As far as emptying the weight at the end of the day we could either cut holes in the bottom and cover for dumps or just tip her over like we did last weekend. But honestly the beer was flowing so fast and we had enough length on the lines that serving temp and foaming were not a problem.

The only other improvement we are thinking for next year is to build a monolithic gas manifold on the back of the canoe. This should help with hose routing and gas management. One tank/reg feeding all the taps.

Thanks for all the comments.....it was a great day!

Jason

debuted it this past weekend and it was a hit!
32 taps but we had 40 beers, 200 gallons of beer.

What do you think of our new tap wall?



1) you have a minor typo in the red and white sign: the accent on the "a" is in the wrong direction. it should be "Brasseurs à la Maison" (not á). yes, i realize that i might be the only person to notice this...
2) how the hell did you folks expect anyone to choose from that selection?!? i ran down the list and counted at least 10 beer i needed to try. even with small pours, i would have crawled out of there.

looks like an awesome time. congrats!

I was there and it was definitely awesome.
I wanted to taste them all, but didn't get to, but I still had a great time and got a little too tipsy!
