In NC you can get them for $15 a piece...I had offered to get some for members here before and never got any replies. I will be getting 10 more next week for $150. Those "Deals" are not great deals as the guys selling them pay less then $5. The guy I get them from gets them for free from bottling plants but it costs about $5 each to ship them here (trailer full). He then sends most of them overseas. He always had a lot full of them but not so much any more. Last time I talked to him he said there were less then 150,000 left in North America and most are in Canada.

I also get them for free from the local pepsi distributor. I haven't tried to get more than I have needed because they say they will be continuing to use them here for the next few months. My sales rep told me when they are done I can get what I want. So hopefully I will have a whole bunch to sell really cheap this summer

Yeah, it's $183 for four kegs. About $45 each.

I did not see that. I'm just buying again from the same reseller because I think the quality is good. I guess I probably paid about $8 too much for a keg, but they are still cheaper and better quality than the ones at my LHBS.

* Sure wish they were as plentiful here in the midwest... Obviously, $15 is much better than $45.

* it's the classic love story - supply meets demand. The price, including your deals, will only get more expensive.

* Can't be mad at those guys, they are just putting food on their table. I do the same thing with different products.

My local home brew store sells pony kegs for $40 a piece ... I'm not impressed with this price at all.
