It’s thirsty Thursday and here is a funtastic article…How to make a pumpkin keg

Pumpkin-Keg-66

Since this is a tutorial, this post is going to be light on words and laden with photos.  Besides, I figured I would give you guys a break from hearing me ramble on for once.

Have you guys seen a pumpkin keg before?  If not, super sweet!  I am stoked to be introducing you to a fabulous fall entertaining idea.  If you have, well, one can never see, drink, or provide enough beer!

Anyways, making a pumpkin keg is easy as pumpkin pie.  All you need is a sharp knife, a tap, beer, and about 15 minutes of your time.  Utilizing a pumpkin as a keg and filling it with beer adds a touch of pumpkin flavor to your favorite brew.  Plus, it’s a great conversation piece and it is festively fun!

These DIY kegs are a perfect addition to any fall gathering, shindig or holiday party – Halloween, tailgate, or even Christmas.  Simply stencil whatever floats your boat onto the front of the pumpkin or leave it plain.  Then tap the pumpkin, add your beer and viola – pour yourself a cold, pumpkin flavored, one.

Enough chit chat, let’s craft a pumpkin keg.
