Default Buying used

I have an opportunity to by some equiptment from a restaurant. It has changed hands and the new owners (leasors?) are not going to serve draft beer. The equiptment consists of a stainless counter, a two tap tower, a drip tray, Three kegs (small ?7.5 gal?) a large co2 cylinder with regulator and associated manifold tubes and hoses. The kegs and co2 set up are in a cold room. There is also a fan to cool the lines going to the taps. The kegs are from a local microbrewery. I'm thinking The kegs belong to the micro breweries and the co2 tank could be leased from a distributor. thereby what I could be buying legaly might be only the table, tower, taps and lines. any thoughts? Also I live in Utah and you cant buy keg beer here. Legally.

I wouldn't pay more than $200 for the setup. A double draft tower, complete, is about $140 new. The connectors on the lines won't fit cornies and you would need to set up a cooler of some sort.

That's what he's asking $200.I offer $150. I'm building a chest kegerator and have 4 cornies four taps and shanks a regulator and tank a new freezer and a thermostat. About all I need is some ball locks and some plumbing. I was thinking my son wants to do a setup but I dont think the value is in this deal.

The deal, especially the stainless table is probably more valuable to another restaurant though due to the NSF rating and local health codes.

Might have to take the table off the table to get what you need to get the deal done.

You can't legally buy/carry alchol in volumes larger than 2L IIRC, hah, I beleive it is even illegal to be drunk. I also read a whole lot of other wack laws related to alcohol and its purchase, you poor poor souls. It's quite funny how down here in New Zealand there is nothing in the law that prohibits me from buying brewing supplies and brewing myself, even though I am under the legal drinking age of 18.

- back on topic - It really doesn't seem like ur getting that much for your money really, especially if it seems that you don't really need anything other than ball lock and plumbing.

Sad! But true! You can get draft beer in a tavern or micro brewery but you cant buy a keg for home use. You can drink in Utah but the laws are in place it seems to make sure when you do you know the mighty mormons are in power!A constant nagging reminder if you will.
