Just to finish off the post. Nearly 2 years ago I purchased 25 used and in generally ****ty shape kegs in Boston and shipped them down along with a couple other pallets of used hard to find items.
It may be possible to buy corny kegs off of the Costa Rica Craft Beer Company in Cartago, however they may have sold them by now. Otherwise, shipping through puerto Limon is the way to go.
Also, for those wanting ingredients check out La Bodega de Chema in San Jose for homebrewing ingredients and beer sharing. www.bodegadechema.com
There is also going to be a store opening in santa ana near the Freshmarket. It's called Ticobirra and they have already started educational seminars and guest speakers from yeast and malt providers.
In April 2012 there will be the first Craft Beer Festival and Homebrewing Comp. hosted by Product C and Avenida Escazu. PM for more info and/or I'll post up a link to info.
Hey Rackerman...I know its kind late ( your post) , but I need your assistance here...I need to buy kegs and hoses..is there any place here in Costa Rica to get these??
How do you serve your craft beer ?
