Default Nitrogen tanks and altitude

I live at sea level and will be traveling to 8000 ft. I would like to take my nitrogen tank to dispense my stout. Is there a problem with taking my tank to this altitude? Is it safe? I suspect that it is, but just asking. Thanks!

ascending 8000 feet is a difference of 4.7 PSI of atmospheric pressure.

so instead of a tank pressure of 3000 PSI, it will now be 3005 PSI inside. that difference wont matter at all to your tank.
