This year I decided to add some texture to my early season racing by creating a fully functional beerpak. My racing teammate and I have used these two years in a row at the 12 Hours of Temecula. We scored podium spots both times, once in the co-ed duo (1st) and once in the 4-person open (3rd). TeamBeer Pak has a dress code: cut off flannel shirts, beer paks, cargo shorts and a good attitude. Here's how you can join the club.
1. Drink the keg.
3. Collect your tools:
Flat screw driver
Dremel tool with sanding attatchment
Left-cut aviation snips
(FYI - For safety and end results, we recommend not starting after you've been drinking. See last step.)
1. Use the Lenyz multi tool and the screw driver to pop off the top plastic grey piece of the keg
2. Cut the plastic collar out of the Camelbak bladder along with it’s lid. Keep collar and lid as one piece.
7. Trace a circle where you want your hose to exit on the barrel. Cut that out using the same method as described above.
10. Take an old Camelbak, customize it to carry your barrel. You will need to have extra straps added.
