    When I open a bomber especially a high ABV beer ( 22-25oz.) I usually use a Metrokane wine sealer to store the beer in the fridge for the next night. It works well, although the quality of DIPAS can be diminished. Other styles ( strong ales, stouts) it's fine. Sometimes, especially when the beer is very high ABV,(13+) I would like to drink it over 3 nights, or have a way of storing it over a longer period of time.

    Is there a small kegging system for the fridge, which I could store the beer for longer periods of time?
    I thought I read about this- perhaps in the Beer Advocate magazine.

    Yes there is quite a bit out there- @jpstodwftexas has your best option with the pressurized serving growlers, they use paintball co2 cartridges.

    Other than that- buy a homebrew bottle capper and recap the bottles, or you can recycle those Heineken mini kegs and get a co2 rig for those.

    Main thing is that you want to make sure there is co2 surrounding your beer to make sure it doesn't oxidize too much.
