Renting and buying FAQ:

How much do I need?

1/2 bbl kegs will yield about 150 - 12oz pours
1/6 bbl kegs will yield about  50 - 12oz pours

For a gathering or special event:  

Place your order, indicate if you need a Party-Pump to dispense the liquid.  You will be charged a refundable $80 deposit for both the keg and the party-pump.  Upon return, you will get that deposit refunded.

For your personal use: 

If you have your own keg, you can avoid the deposit by bringing it to us at Canal Place where we will clean it and fill it with what you purchased and you will just be charged for the beer. If you don't have your own keg, pay for the refundable deposit and we will fill our keg for you.  Once you are done, you can EITHER return it and receive your deposit OR purchase another keg.  That previous deposit will transfer to the next order and you will only have to pay for the beer.

If you are bringing in your own personal keg to be cleaned and filled, drop it off at Canal Place the week before you want to pick it up. (Wednesday-Sunday for next Friday pickup)

Keg FAQs

If this is for a party, how do I keep it cold?

You can put the keg in a bucket or any container, fill it with ice and add cold water.

How long is the beer good for?

If you are using a party-pump, this will only be good for a few days as oxygen gets pumped-in to dispense which is not good for the beer after a few days, depending on style.  If you are using a kegerator, then you will be using CO2 and the beer will be good for several months depending on style

Will this work with my kegerator?

If your draft system accepts a Sanke connection (see picture), then it will work.  Your local homebrew shop can get you the correct fitting.

When do I receive the deposit refund?

Refunds will process 1-7 days after you return your keg and will come via Paypal.
