seems like requiring a credit card with a signature that ok's the cost of the keg should it not be returned. If you included enough time in this for the guys that are using them in kegorators it wouldn't be a problem. Return the keg before 6 months is up, or whatever, and no extra charge. Then there wouldn;t be a need for a deposit. Just a CC like incase you go rockstar on a hotel room. I for one wouldn't mind that at all.

In the modern age of credit I doubt that any merchant would rely on the credit card still being active in the future... I think they'd take the wise approach and charge the card and then apply the refund back onto it once the keg was returned... The distributors who are already doing that will only apply the refund back onto the card used originally and will not do cash refunds on card-based deposits...

I actually just bought a used keg from a liquor store.. That 'sells' (rents) the kegs.


As far as i'm concerned, they owned it.. They sold it to me. It's mine.

Just a thought, but if breweries allowed people to buy their decommissioned kegs then it may help. From my experience, when I have asked I always get a negative response.

I was asking about decommissioned kegs today at the local beer outlet. They said they always gave them back to the distributer. She then turned around and asked a guy who turned out to be their distributer about kegs. He looked at me funny and said, "Why don't you just buy a keg of beer and not turn it in!!"

Guess it's who you ask.

That guy just collects a paycheck and doesn't own the keg... :think: He could get fired for verbalizing advice like that... :problem: It kinda adds perspective to the depth of the problem... :roll:

Been noticing more and more of the blue plastic kegs at the brew shop......Reckon the writing will be on the wall soon enough.

I predict job specific boiler sales will rise (as they have) as more of these blue kegs get put into service.

After I realized who he was, I was hoping he would say, "Oh, we have a few of those available now", decommissioned kegs that is.

I kinda looked at him funny as I left.

Hell, I couldn't drink that much beer anyway. lol

It would take me a long time to finish a keg of beer....


At least a weekend.

$143 for a 1/2 barrel for a new keg (qty 1), certainly is about as cheap as you are EVERY going to find one. I wonder what their shipping cost are, but the sales price is really not bad for a new keg.

Yes, this is a HELL of a lot more than most ppl spend on them. However, this does provide options to actually obtain 100% legal (and provable legal) kegs.
