Im not paying him anything. There is a $35 deposit on them and he told me I can buy as many as I want. Dont see the big deal.

Because the Brewery still owns them. the deposit is just that, a deposit so that you bring it back. The guy at the liqour store has no authority to sell them to you unless he actually purchased them from the brewery or the manufacturer.

I'm not saying people don't do this, but theoretically, it is stealing.

I have read the debates on this, I get what your saying. I dont know the law, I am just a consumer, if he wants to sell me great kegs like new, im buying them. Not my problem.

I look at it like its just a bigger bottle with a bigger deposit on it. Does harpoon still own my bottles? Maybe ill bring back my 16 cases of empties to them..... lol

It is stealing. And because you know what is going on, you are legally responsible. That being said no one will ever prosecute you for this. BUT, that does not make it the right thing to do.

It is different from bottles because those are priced into the purchase price of the six pack. The cost of the keg is not included in the purchase price of the keg.

I deposit 5 cents per bottle here in Massachusetts, I hope they're not charging me double by padding the sixer

That goes to the state, I think. More importantly, good luck with the 3 feet of snow!

Found this great deal on a car the other day, $20k for a brand new Ferrari. The guy looked a little shady, but hey, I'm just the consumer.

I'll add my $.02...
I bought two kegs off craigslist. It was dark and rainy (in Seattle?), so when I got home and checked more closely, the kegs were date stamped 2012, and they were in perfect condition. Crap, I think I just bought stolen kegs.
Tried calling the guy to ask WTF, but after the deal, he never picked up again.
So, I email the brewery and tell them the story. I let them know that I paid good money for these, and if there is a deposit out on them, maybe I could return them and re-coup my money (at least partially).
Nope.
They inform me that they own those kegs, and regardless if somebody left a deposit or not, my beef is with the guy that sold them to me.
They suggested that I give them my name and address, and they will send me a shipping label, and then I can send them back (next state over).
To me, doesn't it make more sense that they fork out a small fee for returning as opposed to having to buy new ones? They did (I assume) just make $45 off somebody.
I guess the question is, when you pay a deposit on a keg, who gets the deposit? The store? The brewery?
Like Lespaul said, if they just treated it like a pop bottle, maybe people would be more inclined to actually return kegs.

If someone stole a car and sold it to you, would you expect the car dealership to pay you to return the car? Clearly not, so why do you expect something different from a brewery?
