Want to make a memorable drink dispenser? Check out this pumpkin keg.
Autumn is here and not only does that mean hunting, football, and cooler weather, it also means imbibing at holiday parties.
And what better way to imbibe than straight out of a pumpkin?
Here is how to carve a keg out of a pumpkin for your Halloween party or fall festival.
Start out how you would carve any jack-o-lantern by cutting off the top of the pumpkin and scooping out the innards. You can leave some pulp in to flavor the beer if you want.
Then cut out the hole for the keg spigot. Make sure you cut the hole just as big as the spigot by tracing the hole beforehand. You can thin the pumpkin wall to make it easier to carve by scooping out some of the inside where the spigot will go. Using an apple corer really helps.
Fit the spigot in and make sure it fits snugly. You don't want beer gushing out over your hands.
Finally, fill the pumpkin with your choice of beer. Our editor likes any Oktoberfest brew because of the autumn notes and fulfilling taste.
I think this DIY pumpkin keg is just about the coolest thing you could find at a fall get together.
