Your watermelon keg is fun and all, but you have to admit: it’s a lot of hard work to hollow that thing out to turn it into a proper drink dispenser. Save yourself the hard work without giving up the awesome with the Stone Drink Dispenser instead.
Designed by Jeff Henderson, it’s a big lump of stone that’s been handcrafted to serve as a tap system for bottled beverages. Kind of like the kegs we imagine they used in the Bedrock joint Fred Flinstone frequented during happy hour. Outfitted with tubes and a spigot, simply put a bottle of your favorite spirits or a growler of craft beer on the top hole, then draw it out from the tap. Convenient and pretty as heck, too.
The Stone Drink Dispenser comes in two general styles: found stones that were turned into a proper dispenser with a flat base and rectangular dispensers made from granite blocks. The found stones are limited in numbers, so best try to get your hands on them while you can; if they run out, the granite version supposedly comes in more generous supply. Dimensions are roughly 7 inches wide and 7 inches tall for the found stones (varies slightly depending on the original stone used), while the square granites measure 4 x 4.5 x 7 inches (d x w x h). Both feature handcrafted bodies, a stainless steel spigot, and a stone lever for that genuine caveman feel.
