Default Best Craigslist Find Ever!

While perusing Craigslist the other day looking for a kegerator or a Sanyo 4912, I happened upon a guy looking to sell 'beer taps' as he called it along with some tables, chairs, etc.. from an old restaurant. I sent him a harmless email wondering if he had a picture of the 'beer taps' and how much he wanted for him......

Long story short, after one morning of cutting beer line and getting $100 lighter, I came home with this...


this...



these...



these...




... continued on next post

these...



and these




Since I'm obviously not starting a full scaled bar (I'm only on my 5th batch of homebrew), I need to sell this stuff. Can you guys help me by cluing me in on how much this stuff is worth? I want to get rid of the kegs right away and will sell the other stuff more slowly.

Here's the list:

2 - 10 Tap Towers, Stainless Steel with Glycol Lines
6 - 1/2 Barrel Kegs, some with beer!
4 - 1/6 Barrel Kegs
21 - Regulators with low pressure gauges and shutoff
1 - Regulator with high and low pressure gauges
12 - Sanke Keg Couplers with Fittings

Thanks and if anyone wants anything, let me know.

Shoot, I'll give you $100 for one of the towers minus all of the taps, shanks and hoses.

Nice, try! Here it is new for $1,500 so I think I can do a little better than that.

Seriously, I'm not looking for offers so much as how much you think the stuff is worth used in decent condition. I will put everything up for sale here in the classifieds to give everyone a crack at it for a reasonable price before I just dump it.

I am willing to let go of the kegs cheap though, I need to get them out of the garage.

I'd keep a few of those 1/2 kegs if I were you, they'll be very useful when you decide to go all-grain

Not to burst your bubble .. Ive bought a nice 6 faucet brass mushroom for like 150 and a 10 faucet stainless one for like 100 ...... If you keep an eye on eBay .. they dont bring a ton of money.

Where do you live? .... I might buy a keg or two.

Just outside of Raleigh, NC in Holly Springs. I found a guy willing to buy kegs for $20 a piece. Seems to cheap to me though. What do you think?

Well, I was initially thinking $200 each for those but then I saw it online and figured more. I believe you but I still think I can get $200.
