This year, it’s time to up your beer game for Halloween. Impress even the most coldhearted adult trick or treater with this incredible DIY pumpkin beer keg.

Pumpkin-Keg-66

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.
