DrinkTanks: Take your micro brew To-Go

If stereotypes have any truth to them, then I know fly fishermen and beer go together like peas and carrots. This is why I want to tell you about one of my new favorite pieces of gear I use to tote my favorite craft brew to the river. DrinkTanks makes one bad a** piece of gear. Currently I have the 64oz growler version but plan on expanding that to their 128oz version very soon. Each tank is insulated ensuring that your beer stays frosty cold for over 24 hours. So when your favorite micro brew doesn’t distribute, then fill ‘er up on the way to camp. The way the lid locks on to the top with the dual clamp system prevents any leaks and I mean ANY leaks.   Which brings me to my next point. If you spend the extra few pennies, you can get their Keg Cap kit. I mean sure you could just take the lid off of your Drink Tank, but why not get the complete experience. What makes the Keg Cap so cool, is you get a little CO2 injector that allows you to add CO2 to the empty space in your tank. Not only does this keep your beer from going flat, but it also pressurizes the tank allowing you to utilize the pour spout. Not to mention it adds a level of panache that you just can’t get with other drink management systems. One point that I would like to make, is MAKE SURE YOU POUR YOURSELF AT LEAST 1 BEER BEFORE YOU USE THE CO2 INJECTOR. I never thought I would ever have to write this but failure to do so will result in explaining to your family why you have to clean beer off the ceiling. Now...
