Here are some specs according to the folks at Newcastle:
- Holds 10 pints of beer
- Recyclable steel packaging (yay, earth!)
- Patented CO2 system keeps beer fresh up to 30 days after opening
And so we resorted to tapping off what beer we could, and whatever collected at the top we poured off into another glass. Unfortunately, the simple instructions didn't provide much guidance into how to manage this type of situation. Maybe it was because we were all minikeg tapping virgins, but despite following the instructions, it took a bit of creative finagling to finally get the minikeg to pour properly.
The taste was still the Newcastle I knew and loved. We were expecting restaurant quality draft beer, but felt the flavor was more similar to the cans and bottles you buy at your local store. Nonetheless, this product definitely scores points in coolness, portability (weighs around 15lbs I think - easy enough for my skinny arms to carry) and really, can there ever be too much beer in your life??
Available for $22.99 at BevMo, Albertsons, and select retailers
