Default One Keg Kegerator

Anyone build a kegerator that holds only one keg? Like for taking to parties and what not. I'd be really interested in seeing some pics. Thanks!

Do you want it to be electric? If you're just using it for parties, I'd consider simply using ice packs. Build a nice cabinet, insulate the hell out of it, chuck in a paintball tank and a few pounds of cold pack, and you should be ready to take that thing anywhere. Roller wheels and handles for bonus points.

Here's Mine.
Uses a 2.5G keg and a 20 oz paintball tank.
A little ice and water takes care of the cooling.

Cheers!

A few details:

1. 2" shank from Ritebrew.
2. Rubbermaid cooler from HD. $21
3. Used a water bottle holder to secure the CO2 bottle.
4. 2.5G Keg from Bvrgelements.

Only downside. The shank was still a little too long where I placed it. Could try drilling it up higher.
I ended up using 2 neoprene washers from Ace hardware to gain more interior clearance.
The shank has to be loosened to get the keg in and out. No big deal IMO, because the line has to be cleaned anyhow.

With 6' of serving line at 12 psi, it poured an Oktoberfast very nicely.
