Warm beer out of a keg. That’s why in order to have a fun keg party you had to not only get the keg but figure out a way to keep it ice cold just like the moment the guy at the liquor store wheeled it out from the back cooler and loaded it into your tailgating vehicle.
Keeping a keg ice cold involved a plastic tub or a (hopefully clean) trash can and copious amounts of ice to keep it cold. Of course the added expense of the tub and ice was factored into the price of getting a keg but the mess was not. The ice normally melts and has to be disposed of somewhere and the condensation on the outside of the tub or trashcan leaks all over. This is not that big of a deal when you are out tailgating but house parties or backyard parties where the keg is parked on a wooden deck, that water can leave some nasty stains and rings.
