If you're wondering what, exactly, you should use to fill up, Rock Bottom introduced a kitschy vessel: With your subscription, you also receive a to-go beer barrel mini-keg. The double-walled steel keg holds 128 ounces, or eight pints' worth, of beer and comes with a tap handle, faucet and knob, CO2 cartridge, and a how-to guide. They've also thrown in free beer barrel cleanings at any Rock Bottom location.

If you're a little more keen on dining out these days, Rock Bottom's got a beer barrel for you, too. As pandemic dine-in restrictions fluctuate, the brew chain has also launched an in-restaurant, chilled Table-Tap Barrel full of house-brewed beer for your party to enjoy for $27.50. (Note: Rock Bottom says that depending on the state, you may be able to take home the Table-Tap Barrel filled with your choice of beer for $170. You can then bring it back and have it cleaned and refilled for another $27.50.)

You might know any of Rock Bottom brewery's locations in California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin. Their craft beers are made onsite and protected from light, heat, and oxygen for maximum freshness.

The brand also notes they've won more than 200 beer medals from competitions such as the World Cup of Beer and the Great American Beer Festival.
