WTB Beer

Post by jimboh » Sun Apr 15, 2018 2:03 pm

I am in the process of helping a buddy get started with a kegerator and I have gone for sanke fittings I have a single 20L sanke keg I can fill for him but he doesn't want to be dependent on me and he is not a homebrewer so was wondering if any of you brewers who have gone professional sell beer in 20L Sanke Kegs to the public?

Most of the locals sell their beer in 20L sankes on deposit.

Thanks Rob that is good to hear. Would be nice to get some contact info plus some idea of rough pricing that I can pass on.

Pricing varies from brewery to brewery & beer to beer..but I'd say anywhere from $80-160 for a 20L keg is what you should expect. An 8% DIPA will likely be more expensive than a 5% brown.

Pretty much all of the craft breweries in HRM will sell kegs - some list pricing on their websites. Best bet is to just reach out to the brewery to check availability and pricing.

The cheapest place I’ve found for commercial 20 liter kegs is Propeller...$95/keg+$150 keg deposit...great selection and...only $5 difference on their premium line...ie - organic blonde, RIS, XPA, DIPA ($100/keg) Garrison’s kegs are $99+$100/deposit...

I have had cornies filled at smaller out of town venues for $80-105 (BAB)

I know he regularly fills growlers at Propellor so that would be ideal. I wonder if they will refill cornies? With cornies he could get away with a 4.4 cu ft fridge which come up quite often on kij. But a couple of cornies is another $120-150.

They will NOT fill Cornies at Propeller... I posted awhile back on who will...Bad Apple, Unfiltered, tide house, Saltbox, firkenstein, Lunn’s mill...I may have missed some but can guarantee the bigger players definitely do not...eg Moosehead, Keith’s, Propeller, Garrison...
