Rent A Keg
Rent a Keg
We’re excited to be able to offer our draft beer through our General Store, but because we are still a small brewery, we currently offer 1/6 barrel (5.16 gal) kegs & 1/4 barrel (7.75 gal) kegs. Contact brewmaster Jeff Hancock at least 72 hours in advance to reserve your keg, and we will send an email to confirm the reservation.
For keg pricing & ordering, please inquire with Jeff.
For our keg rentals, we require a cash, check, or credit card deposit of $100 for each keg, and a $10 rental fee for each party tap that is taken out. Kegs with taps must be returned within 10 days of the date of purchase. Kegs without taps (for people with kegerators) must be returned within 60 days of the date of purchase. After your deposit period is up, we will process your deposit (i.e. cash your check).
Commonly Asked Questions
How do I tap a keg?
We’ll show you, or you can find one of the many instructionals on the Internet.
How long will kegged beer keep and why does it go flat?
It will keep for a few days if you keep the beer cold, but it progressively changes in taste with each day it’s exposed to air. Tapping your keg with a party pump is like opening a 2-liter bottle of soda – it puts air into the container. Co2 then escapes the liquid and dissipates into the air, making the beer more flat. If the keg is constantly kept cool and under pressure in a kegerator, it will keep up to 8 weeks.
If I plan on drinking the keg over a period of a few days, what should I do?
Best thing to do is to untap the keg and keep the beer on ice! Cod beer will hang on to its Co2 longer. Do not pump more air into it – that’ll just oxidize the beer faster. Or… you could buy yourself a home Co2 draft beer system and be cool like we are.
What causes beer to foam?
Primarily, beer will foam when it is warm. Bouncing it down the stairs won’t help. Keep it on ice and keep it still and you will have a happy keg
