Rental Policy

Items must be returned within 30 days of the date of purchase. After your initial 30-day time period is up, we’ll process your deposit (i.e. cash your check). Do not despair! If you bring back the keg and tap in good working order at a later date, we’ll gladly buy them back from you for the same dollar amount as your original deposit.


We require a cash or check deposit of $100 for each keg (and tap, if needed). Your deposit must be secured with cash or check and will be refunded upon return of all equipment in good condition. Repairs to damaged equipment will be deducted from the deposit.


Please remember, with kegs your first choice of beer style is not guaranteed. Make sure to contact us for style availability. Not everything in draft is available in kegs.

Commonly Asked Questions

How do I tap a keg?

We’ll show you.

How long will kegged beer keep and why does it go flat?

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 from the liquid and dissipates into the air, making the beer more flat. The beer will keep for a few days if you keep it cold, but it progressively changes in taste with each day it’s exposed to air.

If I plan on drinking the keg over a period of a few days, what should I do?

The best thing to do is to untap the keg and keep the beer on ice or in a refrigerator. Cold beer will hang on to its CO2 longer. Don’t pump more air into it; that will just oxidize the beer faster.

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.
