Are you a beer lover? Can you be found at your local bar downing a pint or two of your favorite draft so often that the bartender is actually one of your best friends? Do you make it a point to always have a six-pack in your fridge?

Well, you can forget about all that, for we found something on Kickstarter that can easily transform you into the beer-drinking homebody you’ve always been meant to be. It’s a nifty little machine called Hank the Beer Tank, and you totally need to own it.

Hank the Beer Tank is a portable kegerator that allows you to serve and drink beer just about anywhere, may it be in your living room, your garage, in the wilderness, or a parking lot. It’s a tool that’ll make you king of the tailgaters, for sure.

You can plug Hank the Beer Tank into any 12-24V DC or 110-240V AC outlet in your car or house to charge it for future use. Using an efficient inverter-controlled compressor, the tank keeps your beer cold without the need for ice. Its efficient use of power allows you to access your desired booze nourishment anywhere you take it, without the fear of running out of battery.

Creators and bro heroes Sebastian Ehreiser and Adam Koeppel have started a Kickstarter campaign for Hank the Tank, in the hopes of bringing it to market quicker. Already it has received over 23 percent of its $75,000 goal, with less than a month left for more supporters.

For $699, you can pre-order your own Hank the Tank and start having awesome on-the-go keg parties by February 2016.
