I bought damaged kegs from a brewery. That's the best way if you have any near you. $30/each.

I've had luck getting decommissioned kegs from the local distributors in the past.

I got mine on Ebay. They were between $30 and $40 with shipping.

$30-40 with shipping? That's amazing. They cost that much to ship practically.

I've not had ANY luck with distributors, breweries, etc. And scrapyards are forbidden by state law to possess kegs due to the glut of people selling them for more than their deposit a few years back.

I actually got mine from guys on here. CL is also a viable option, though there are usually a few guys trolling for them already.

That's not to say you won't have different luck, but they can be difficult to scare up.

They charge about $1/lb of stainless. They always have them. Or check recycling centers.
