Default Quick Jockey Box

I fished some frozen steak boxes out of the trash, cut a hole in the lid, and made some keg coolers. I added a piece of foam pad to insulate the top of the keg.

Set up a keg of Amber Lager and a keg of Pils for the family reunion Saturday. It worked great, but the 10' of beer line coiled on top would get warm between pours.

I needed a JOCKEY BOX. Hmmm....

A gallon ziplock, with the coiled beer line inside, filled with ice. Foam free, ice cold pours!

Those foam steak boxes work great, too. I filled them with ice Saturday morning. Sunday afternoon, when I went to dump them, they still were 3/4 full of ice and the kegs were still nice and cold. That was after a day in 90*F heat.
