New Toy

Behold!



It is a Leland CO2 Picnic Tap. It injects CO2 into a beer keg as said beverage is being dispensed, eliminating the tedious pumping. The CO2 keeps the beer fresh, unlike the stale air that pumps introduce to the keg. (Remember your college days, when some drunk moron at the keg would pump the poor thing about a thousand times in a misguided attempt to make the tap run faster? All you could get was foam for the next three hours! No more.)

Retail: About $230. Like-new condition, second hand: $5.
It should come in handy the next time I brew beer (perhaps with Smallholder?) at Queen City Brewing Co. No more bottles! Well, perhaps a few...
