I told you yesterday about the self cooling beer barrels in Franconia. I just discovered that there are other options, too.
Morten at the Schouskjelleren brewpub here in Oslo showed me a new gadget that they have bought to lend out to people who buy their key kegs. This machine is a beer pump and cooler in one.
In Norway, of course, you have to get a temporary liquor licence from the local authorities to buy directly from a brewer. I don´t know if this is cumbersome or expensive to get. But if you want to have real good draught beer at your garden party, you are not limited to what´s already been put into an aluminium keg.
Ask you local brewpub or wholesaler. I suppose I can get details about where this stuff can be bought, too.
