I know you can use growlers to take kegged beer with you where ever you go. I was wondering if there is anything bigger than a growler that y'all use?

Portable igloo cooler for 2-2.5 gallon kegs.

Corney keg, kitchen trash barrel, one of my CO2 tanks & regs with one QD attached, and a picnic tap. Put keg in barrel with a few bags of ice and you're ready to rock.

I did this over the holidays to bring a keg down to my oldest son's place. Worked great!

Cheers!

Depending on how many people will be drinking, a 1 gallon corny keg (or Taylor keg) does the job. It fits in a wide range of coolers too.

I use this, it's a 5 gallon rolling beverage cooler that I bought at Walmart last summer. What's inside is a 3 gallon corny keg with a paintball co2 tank and regulator on the back. I've detailed it in another thread under DIY.
