Default Help me identify this keg!

I managed to get a bunch of equipment from a restaurant that went out of business a year or two ago. Included are two kegs full of (presumably very stale) beer. What type of keg is this and how do I get it open so I can reuse it?



Full View:



Also, this coupler. It does not appear to fit on the keg:

Looks kinda like an "A" tap to me

Ok, the coupler definitely looks like an "A" type from the site you posted. I think the keg itself is a "G" though. I have to see if I have one of those couplers in my equipment closet.

Based on the images you posted (they are tough to see as they are side views), I think you are correct in that it is a 'G' type coupling.
