Bringing a full-size keg isn't always possible: when you're camping, for instance, it can take up valuable space in your vehicle. Even at home, a full-size keg may be a tight fit. But the Avanti Mini Pub offers an elegant solution for tapping 5-liter mini beer kegs. The mini kegs fit inside the smaller-size beer tapper, letting you cool them down and pour beer anywhere. The beer tapper is a lightweight thermoelectric model that autodefrosts. It runs silently and can use any standard 5-liter mini keg. The exterior is stainless steel.

The Avanti Mini Pub stands 16 inches tall and weighs 23 pounds; though it may not work too well if you're planning to pack in your gear for a camping trip, it's easy to use just about anywhere else that you may need a cold beer. The beer tapper come with both AC and DC power adapters. It even has a digital display for both Celsius and Fahrenheit temperatures so you know just how chilly your beer is. The Avanti Mini Pub costs around $230; it uses CO2 cartridges and comes with three--enough to dispense at least three kegs--and you can buy more as needed.
