Synergy

Two of my favorite things brought together in fine style. Blast some good blues through the pannier sound system and you have the trifecta.

I wonder how that would ride when the kegs got to half full and sloshed side-to-side. Maybe Stap will know. That's obviously the UK version because the kegs aren't refrigerated.

Never tried moving a 1/2 full keg of beer. I wait till its empty and then Call for another

One thing I hate is COLD beer- Just below Blood temp is fine.

Not so. Actually, the pan below the kegs contains refrigeration coils.
"The cargo container is a metal keg bucket which holds two full sized kegs and 25 pounds of ice. Beer from the kegs run through a 50 foot cooling coil and then to your glass via two taps (made by Shimano and Chris King)"

BD, is there any reason you can't buy that rig, fill the kegs and pedal it up to Ann Arbor this coming summer?

The poorer-quality the beer, the more it needs refrigeration. That's why a self-respecting beer drinker can't drink Budweiser or Molson's Canadian unless it's nearly frozen. (Besides the fact that they're not beer...) I'll take a micro-brewed ale (IPA or porter) at any temperature!

Do the cranks operate the pump that runs the beer thru the refrigeration coils? Now that's green beer!

With respect to stapfam, that's cooler (pun intended) than I thought. You still haven't covered what happens when the rider, and the beer in the kegs, gets sloshed. I'll bet taking that thing anywhere in the US would be a permitting nightmere too.

I bet downhills with full kegs is a treat.
