The story around the office wasn’t so much our new gift, but that something had “cleared the war room”. The “war room” is where our dev team holes up in a small space with charts, graphs, computers and the concentration of Mr. Miyagi. They stay there all day troubleshooting and brainstorming. It’s a big deal, and we’re told that those of us on the outside will never understand.
But then the the inventor of the Keg Cap Tap sent us “the perfect tap handle for every keg.” It was if the war room guys had just found out about sunshine. They wandered out into the open and gathered around the kegerator. With quiet admiration they celebrated the latest innovation in beer liberation.
Some of you may know that every keg comes with a little cap. It’s an identifier of what the keg is, and provides a modicum of protection to the valve that guards the nectar below. Until now it’s been popped off and stuck to someone’s head or flicked about in an impromptu game of table football. But now it has a new home.
