How do you get beer ready for transporting and the serving via a beer engine. Read some people take full corny kegs to festival.

What will you be bringing your beer in?

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.

Simple answer is just keg it in a corny like you would normally. If it's to be dispensed via a beer engine rather than a tap, you need a check valve. There is usually a check valve at the festival, but may be worth bringing your own. The check valve essentially stops the low pressure from the co2 driving the beer out of the engine when the engine is not in use. That and make sure it's not overly pressurised from being shaken up in the car.
