Gawker Media ‘Kegerator’ Has Its Own Website

JoyrideKegeratorThere’s an interesting factoid in the latest bit of press for Queens-based and now bi-coastal company Joyride Coffee Distributors. According to freelance Post contributor Maridel Reyes, employees at one NYC media company have the option of making sure – before they get out of their chair – that a trip to the iced cofee “kegerator” will be worth the walk:

Joyride’s first kegerator was installed at Gawker last May — and the media company’s kept it ever since. It even maintains a website where workers can check if the keg is empty or not.

The list of media companies running on Joyride coffee is long and impressive. Besides Gawker, their product adorns the offices of Twitter, BuzzFeed and Mashable.

A Joyride kegerator must pour through at least two kegs’ worth per month to maintain free install/equipment contract terms. Not a problem for any 24/7 digital media company.
