Alas, I believe that most water cooler designs cannot keep their
contents at anything over atmospheric pressure. Come to think of it,
the stuff in the bottle is probably at a little less than atmospheric
since ultimately it's air pressure holding it in there to begin with.
If you put beer in the bottle the release of CO2 would likely force
out the beer and quickly overflow the little reservoir under it.

It is an interesting idea, though. It would make those office parties
more enjoyable if you had a nice porter within easy reach! Maybe if
we could rig a couple o' gaskets....

Cheers!
