It's going to be a long summer. If your plan is to hunker down and get a bunch of work done in hopes that it'll make the heat pass more quickly, we understand, but you're going to need some help. Now you can enjoy all of the smooth, caffeinated goodness of Cartel Coffee Lab's cold brew from the comfort of your home with a full keg of coffee.

The popular Phoenix-area coffee roastery is offering kegs of cold brew for retail and personal use. Although you'll need to sacrifice the use of your nitro-equipped kegerator to pour at home, if you have access to one, switching from beer to coffee for a bit might be a really good idea.
Full-sized kegs (13.2 gallons) are available for $174 and torpedo kegs (5.17 gallons) are $83. The full-sized keg would yield about 105 16-ounce cups of cold brew, which would surely get you through the summer. If you're interested, make sure to order 24 to 48 hours in advance to allow for optimum brewing time.
If you don't want to get a full keg, you can always just get cold brew on tap at the Cartel locations in Tempe, Phoenix, Scottsdale, and the airport. Sip Coffee in Scottsdale and Chestnut in Arcadia also carry the kegged cold brew.
