http://www.millerdesigns.net/portkeg.html Has the Keg-O-Meter web site (www.kegometer.com) which doesn't appear to work anymore.  These guys weighed the keg.  This is a pretty straightforward idea for walk-in coolers and such.  I didn't do it this way because of the ice.  As the ice melts I would need to keep track of the water or the weight would be wrong.  So I decided to use a flowmeter.  I once got a call inquiring about the use of the kegmeter domain name, have wondered if it was them.  I actually came up with "Kegmeter" because Kegometer wouldn't fit on my 8 character display!  Also sounded a bit more electrical, like voltmeter and ammeter.  Of course Speedometer, Odometer and Pedometer have the 'O' thing going...

http://www.kegerator.net yep; a bit further down Google search clicked George Fairbank's Kegerator story which was a good read.

Speaking of Google, why doesn't my web site show up directly on a google search ?  I get a link to my brother's old college page and a suggestion I should try spelling it "Keg meter".  I've sent them my feedback weekly now for a couple months.  I have to wonder...

http://www.marvelindustries.com/outdoorseries.htm If you scroll down to the bottom of the page there's an outdoor half keg cooler.  I should get one of these.  There is (unfortunately) sometimes beer left over after the party.  After a few days it gets hard to justify continuously replenishing the ice for the keg, even with an ice saving Supercooler.  

http://www.azbaramerica.com/Products/BEERHEAD/beerhead.htm Highly evolved Automatic Beer Dispensing faucets for bars.  Not sure if you could get beer out of them if the power failed.  I think they could use an electric eye... 

http://www.bristolnf.com/draftbeer.htm Auper Draft Beer Control System - Interesting read on how much keeping track of your beer could save you if you were a bar owner.  A little depressing from the patron's point of view.  Could squelch buybacks.
