Most Important Question. Period.

Beer.

So does anyone have experience bringing kegs on multidays? I think I've heard of it being done before but there were a few issues we did not resolve before the last trip.

1.Keep it cold? We decided this didn't matter as the best beer is water-temp beer.

2.Foaming in the Rapids? Another simple problem to solve. Drink it all before the rapids and bring traditional canned beers for the paddle out (this was a Cat trip).

3.The Tap. This is the one that got us. If something were to happen to the tap, we would be beerless for half the trip. We all agreed that this was not an option and it was not worth risking it.

So, anyone made it work before? Curious to see the issues that have arisen and the solutions developed.

Dave's system rocks. I'd take him up on that offer. He's pretty much got it down to a science. Have you thought about a keg of margs as well? Good fun!

Dave's setup is definitely sweet. I never tried it but I met some guys who kept a margarator (kegerator always filled with ice cold margs) in the garage. Damn good idea.

I want on a Cataract Canyon trip in September where we took along 3 half barrells and 3 1/6 barrells of Tommyknocker-Finished all with 10 guys. At that time of year as long as shielded from the sun was tasty and drinkable. In mid summer I would suggest only the 1/6 barrells which fit inside of a raft cooler, keep them warm until the night before you'll use them then throw them on ice...and of course, bring at minimum 3 taps.
