    Anybody know if a keg will fit in a MINI? I have an R53 and an E36, not sure which one to drive to the liquor store, or whether I should call a friend. I'm thinking the well between the rear bumper and the back of the rear seats is too small for the keg, and I don't want to destroy the interior. It'll be a full half-barrel keg. Any ideas?

    Just take the seats out again. Should fit nicely in the depression under the rear seat. :lol:

    Fold the back seats down, you could turn it into a beer wagon then, stack 2-3 in there.

    I don't know for sure but I'd bet it fits.

    At worst you'd have to fold down a seat.

    What kind of beer?

    By the by, an empty 1/2 keg takes up as much room as a full one:beer

    Man, that keg has to be heavy when full. Could be awkward putting in and getting it out. You don't need to mess up either car or your back.
    You have any neighbors that drive pickup trucks? Beer payment works best with guys.
    Short of that, call a cab at the beer stop and follow the taxi driver very closely all the way home. :beer

    Not sure what kind of beer yet. Gotta nail down the budget with the roommates and see what's available. Just some advance planning.
