Default My trashcan refreshment dispenser

Well,

I am going to the beach for a week and didn't want to haul the keezer along so after seeing quite a few of these on here I figured what the heck. The taps aren't in yet, crossing my fingers for tomorrow. I will update with more pics as I progress.

built one of these the other week, for my buddies wedding (i know classy right? but it was the after reception party)

we can get 3 kegs in it, put two taps on it and a picnic tap inside.

Yeah, I added a drain. I have lined it with 3/4" styrofoam so hopefully the ice will keep it nice and cold for a good while. I'm planning on keeping it inside if I can.

I'm headed to Outer Banks, NC - Hatteras Island.

The styrofoam will help...but if it's full of meltwater...the trash can will still sweat like crazy (I'm assuming you're throwing ice in it)

Just something to keep in mind when locating it.
