Cool...... Something similar happening over here:

This is in my neck of the woods. I was going to take a weekend trip last fall to see it with a girlfriend, but the girlfriend fell thru, so I didn't go. I will have to make a trip over this spring.

I was trying to figure out how to make something that would fold-up/disassemble easily, still look period and hide the "modern" kegs, thus the box. The jockey box in a barrel (I like that description!) would give it a nice period touch.

Maybe I could dress as a Monk instead of a Scot, and make it even more period.  ;D I have a start on a tonsure. LOL!

I got on crigslist and asked about corny kegs and a guy in Roswell called me with 6 for $150.  They had belonged to his inlaws and had been in his barn for about 12 years.  They looked nasty but they all still had pressure, and when i got them home they were absolutely immaculate on the inside.  But as  I was loading them in my truck he asked if I had any use for a jockey box(he called it a cooler with taps) so for another $20 I brought it home.  The cooler isn't in good shape and the faucet are plastic soda faucets, but it has a 4 way cold plate, a manifold and lots of ball lock fittings. 
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico
