How do I use a keg? I've never purchased one before.
Keg is nothing but a container that holds large volume of beer. Beer can be dispensed using a kegerator, picnic pump or jockey box.

I am planning a party and want to order kegs. How many should I buy?
Each full keg holds approximately 155 12oz servings, pony keg holds 80 12oz servings, sixtel keg holds 55 12oz servings. Depending on other beverage such as wine, spirits or non-alcoholic drinks being served at the event, one should plan accordingly.

How many days in advance should I place my order?
Advance planning is key for a successful party or event. It is highly recommended to contact stores no less than 3 days in advance. In our experience, 1 week is ideal for having access to wider choice.

Keg Delivery in NYC. Is it a thing?
Yes! This city runs on delivery. Almost anything, including kegs can be delivered from certain stores & distributors. If you buy for offices, especially in Manhattan, you should contact your building management to check the insurance requirements for delivery to your office. Most importantly, order in advance!
