We’re hitting the pumpkin-everything time of year, so we’re here with more pumpkin stuff for you. But this one’s different. This one’s special. We’re talking about a DIY Pumpkin Keg here, people. The true king of “pumpkin stuff.” Follow our instructions on how to make your own pumpkin keg, and see for yourself. 

How To Make A DIY Pumpkin Keg Tap 

Step 1: Prepare Pumpkin 

With a sharp knife, cut a lid from the top of your pumpkin, and with a spoon scoop out all of the pumpkin pulp and seeds. Keep the top and set aside.


Step 2: Attach Faucet

Near the base of the pumpkin, cut a hole slightly smaller than the shank that comes with the pumpkin tap kit, and attach your faucet.


Step 3: Serve & Enjoy

Fill the pumpkin with your  drink of choice, put the lid back on top, pull on the faucet to serve and enjoy!
