Heineken Mini Keg
I’ve been testing out the Heineken mini keg this week. Cost? about $20. Availability? Select larger liquor stores. Your corner store probably won’t carry it. Other blogs and reviewers say it pours about 20 full glasses, which would be about $1 a glass. Not bad.
Pros? Pour your own custom size beer anytime. Can have a small glass with dinner, or a large glass in front of the game. If you’re like me and enjoy using beer for cooking (steaks and making your own beer battered onion rings,) its perfect for small amounts without using an entire bottle. Ok I’m not kidding anyone – who can’t just finish half of a beer?
Other pros: Looks great at a party. Large kegs are synonymous with drunk frat boys setting furniture on fire. This keg fits right in next to the wine or in the fridge. And it doesn’t take up any more space than one six pack of bottles or cans.
Cons: Lots of foam until it chills down and settles. If its rolling around in your car you’d better wait a few hours before imbibing. Con #2: you can’t hide it inside your jacket and sneak it into a club.
