How to Make a Pumpkin Keg

Now I think we saw Dogfish Head's Sam Calagione do this at the last Punkin Ale release party but I just don't remember. This is however a very cool trick that I'm hoping to do at my Halloween party. This might also be a good way to prepare a pumpkin for a future Pumpkin Beer Pie recipe forth coming.

Pouring "nice" beer in here might not be the best of ideas, however if you're not interested in pouring your beer into this pumpkin due to the possibility of it going flat here's another idea: make it into a "jockybox." Pack it full of ice and run your hoses from your keg through your pumpkin- if you have a big enough pumpkin you can add a keg handle or two!

Thanks to Melissa Klein for sharing this fun craft! Please check out Celebrations for full instructions!
Happy Halloween!


I'd bet if you were just putting ice in it you could still carve a design in it and throw a glow stick or 2 in it. Allthough I suppose it would still leak as the ice melted...
