It seems like Coors has come up with yet another great idea -- a mini, mini keg. That's right: Five Liters of Fun. What's nice about this invention is it is just as delicious as beer on tap, but in a portable self contained device. The side of the keg says to chill it for 5 hours before drinking. "It's well worth the wait!" Damn right it's worth the wait... well especially because Tom Thumb did the chilling for us. It's small enough to fit in a fridge or cooler, but big enough to get a couple people toasted.
Travis and I took it to a friends house for game two of the NBA finals -- then took it to the lake the next day. Five Liters of beer is roughly 170 ounces which works out to over 14 twelve ounce beers. The keg cost about $12 with tax. It's more of a novelty than anything. It has a spout that pulls out on the side to serve the beer and a cap at the top to open to get the beer flowing. As I hinted at earlier, the beer can be resealed and finished the next day.
