Mini kegs

If a six pack just isn't enough to satisfy your beer thirst, you could always bring your very own mini keg along. We recommend you find an aluminum one to save a little weight — or you could try covertly swapping out your buddy's sleeping bag for the keg. When you reach your campsite, reward your exhausted friend with a nice, cold brew and reassure him that his pack will be much lighter on the return trip.
