with me working my second job at a brewery i think its only appropriate that i figure out how to build a beer tap system into my camper. has anyone done a beer or wine tap in the camper? i have seen it done on trailers but of course the camper has less room for a system. i could always do a jockey box but i was thinking something more involved that is part of the camper. think of the resale value! lol.

 

 as i get things figured out ill be posting updates to this topic.until then, if you know of ideas or you have such a thing already, please share.

 

cheers!


love everyday like you won the lotto.

The tap is easy. It's where you will locate the nitrogen bottle and keg that is difficult. With your flatbed, a pony keg and the bottle will fit under your camper wing.

lol

 

ill have to do some sort of "jockey box" so the beer is cold. im thinking a custom made one. pretty simple really.  id ideally like two taps but not sure i have room for it.

 

i was too busy sanitizing kegs tonight at the brewery to bounce ideas off of the brewmaster.  the system has to be accessible so i can sanitize the lines but still be tucked away in a small space. under the "wing" of the camper is a location that i think will work best. this thinking about what to do is probably best with a cold beer.

You don't now. Why would opening a mini brewery tasting room at your site change things! Just sayin....

Like tying a pork chop around your kids neck so the dog will hang out and play with him. Instead you choose spirits. :-)

since i work part time at a brewery, filling a smaller keg is not an issue with filling it at the brewery i work at. now trying to get something from another brewery could be difficult. ive done my measurements the other day but just been too busy to do anything. id like to get something set up soon.

at the brewery we work at we have a beer trailer with taps on the sides. a cooler inside up front to keep the kegs cold and then space in the back inside for pop up tent and so on.

George and I were just talking last night that we might sell our cargo trailer. Maybe it would make a nice beer trailer. Perhaps we can team up and you can tow it to our get-togethers.  :1056:

I have always liked the type 2 Kombi p/u , there are a couple still running around our area . When I ran the local VW dealership back in the 70's , we had 2 units used as service vehicles .

The units in the attachments would make neat camping units . Thanks for sending them .

Rich,

 

The 3 gallon keg sounds like a good size but how are you going to carry 10 or more of them and keep them all cold. You know three gallons won't last but about 10 to 20 minutes. :mellow: I think Sally has the answer, the big cargo trailer then you could do 16 gallon kegs, they would last longer. At least a little longer.
