Three college buddies tired of leaky trash cans and warm beer at the bottom of the keg say they have the solution to better the beer-drinking experience.
It's a portable cooling wrap designed to make kegs more portable and to keep beer cold in pickup trucks, at the beach or in the back yard. Also, they say it would get rid of the annoyance and cost of ice replacement.
The idea was the brainchild of 22-year-old Adam Hunnell, a graduate student at Cleveland's Case Western Reserve University.
Hunnell compares the Keg Wrap to a heating blanket that chills instead of warms. The wrap would be powered by a electric socket or a car cigarette lighter.
Hunnell and his fraternity brothers Aaron Noland and Nathan Slavin got a $20,000 entrepreneur grant to develop the Keg Wrap.
Saw the picture in the SF Chronicle yesterday. I thought it might actually have something to do with Marla Streb but turns out she's just modelling the machine. Still, it seems like a nifty invention. I doubt I will be affording one any time soon though. I shall wallow in the stone ages with my ziplock bag-o-ice.
Of course I didn't get one from Marla for free but I've dreamt about it. My father has had multiple knee surgery. His medicare gave him a new machine after the second surgery, he even tried to send it back but they wouldn't accept it and didn't charge him for it.
They work great in that they can compress and cool at the same time. The ice last 2-3 hours in mine. Of course living in Phoenix it's pretty cool just to wrap the thing around my neck while watching TV it helps put a chill on the 114 degree heat we've had as of late.
