Watermelons have many important uses: Soaking up vodka, keeping Gallagher relevant, bringing together Baby and Johnny, and, now, serving as fully operational kegs. HouseholdHacks put together this vital tutorial on crafting a watermelon keg in your backyard. All it takes is some strategic slicing, scooping, and an old water jug valve to get going. Once you've made your own, you should obviously fill it to the rind with this watermelon beer. And maybe don't invite Gallagher to the BBQ.
