One of the guys I work with gave me a Sanke keg in pristine condition today. It has never been dropped and not a single dent in the sides. Said it had been in his barn for years collecting dust and wanted it out of the way.
He wouldn't take a dime for it!!!

12 cases of never-used 12 oz brown glass plus one case of aluminum bottles for free.

(samples sent to local brewery by bottling companies... They need the stuff on pallets for the bottling line)

I either need to get better friends or visit Craigslist more often.

I got 2 growlers for free from my wife's uncle.

My "best equipment" finds have typically not been money related.

They usually fall into. "FINALLY!, I have been looking for that exact piece/part/etc forever!" More of a difficult find rather than a good deal on the cheap.

I finally found the right thermowell and quick connects that have made all the difference in my brew day. Great finds and highly valuable pieces of equipment.

As far as money related...I got started in homebrew primarily on a guy "loaning" me his stuff and when he moved away he said.."Ah..keep it, i never use it anyway." Carboys, immersion chiller, small kettle, hydrometers, thermometers, tubing, capper, etc. Pretty much all i needed for extract on the stove.
