Default re-bottling from mini keg

I had a 5L mini keg of Bell's Oberon given to me yesterday. I'm the only beer drinker in the house, and most of my friends drink cheap beer. I don't want to drink this all in one night, but I don't want it to go to flat.
I had the idea of puting some of it in sanitized bottles & capping it for later. Can this be done without loosing the carbonation? (I know if you reseal a soda bottle, it will loose most of the carbonation in a short amount of time.)

You can do it,

All you need is a racking cane and a #2 stopper...if it is well carbonated

I've seen those mini-kegs before, and I'm not sure that you can jam a racking cane into its spigot.

But never fear! Mike "Tasty" McDole bottles right from the spigot, no fancy beer-gun required. The trick is to freeze the bottles for an hour or so before bottling, to minimize foaming.

Make your friends see the light and make them drink it with you. Friends don't let friends drink BMC.
