Default Newcastle Draught Keg Found! At least in Pennsylvania...

I was on vacation in PA and ran into a beer distributor to get Bell's beer because we can't get it in NJ. I was on my way out when I saw the display of Heineken Draught Kegs that are available for the Beetender. The entire display was a sea of green and then on the bottom was a tiny smidge of brown..Could this be?? No...A second glance revealed 1 New Castle Draught keg!! I waited nearly 7 months since I received the Beertender this past christmas for this moment. I ran down the basement and dusted off the Beertender for its first use. I am not sure if these are available all over but just wanted to give everyone a head up that hopefully these are making it to other areas. This makes a nice guest tap next to my homebrew.

Yeah, I saw one on Friday when I was looking for a six pack to get my GEORDIE SCHOONER*. I hadn't had Newcastle in a while, and so far I've been pleasantly surprised.

* This must always be pronounced in a loud Scottish accent, as per CBW Bylaws Article 8 Section 15.

I have seen the Newcastle kegs in my local grocery stores in So.Cal for several months now.

In Michigan those New Castle mini kegs are not to hard to find. I just finished one about 2 weeks ago.

I am fairly sure that I have seen the Bell's beer that do fit in the Beertender, but they had to be looked for. It was in Minneapolis last summer, and of all the bigger beer stores that I went into, they were only carried in one of them.
