A recent acquisition

The 5L Heineken Mini-KegMany of you may know that I spent a year in Germany between finishing my undergraduate degree and beginning my graduate studies. While I was there, I developed a taste for German beers, particularly double bocks and other heavy beers. However, in the summer, I can’t drink beers like that; I need something lighter and more refreshing. The last summer or two, my beer of choice has been Heineken. Over the weekend, I was in a local liquor store and found a 5L Heineken mini-keg. They also had mini-kegs from Warsteiner and Becks, but those had a spigot at the bottom – sort of like wine from a box. The Heineken has a tap at the top and the beer is pressurized. The first pint or two were a little foamy but after that, the tap worked very nicely. So, if you’d like beer from a keg without having to buy a kegerator and a huge keg, see if your local liquor store has any Heineken mini-kegs on hand. They’re great for parties, or, since they stay good for up to 30 days after tapping, they’re fine for personal consumption as well.

    I like that you have a “beer” category.
