Just bought some kegs from them. One had an old style lid & the relief valve was leaking ever so slowly. They send a replacement lid ASAP and the customer service was top notch!

Cool...they are selling kegs for $16 so before I ordered I wanted to make sure they are on the up and up.

Thanks for the information

I just got 10 of them in the mail. The kegs are dirty but serviceable. All had maintained the slight pressure they had sent them with.

I live about a mile from their shop. Good place, wide variety of brewing ingredients and good equipment setups as well. I do have one of their 'used' kegs (the cheapest ones) and despite needing a good cleaning it's worked so far.

Since I live so close I don't bother ordering online...so no comment for that.

Thanks for the feedback. I think I am going to go and order a couple. I don't care if they are dirty as long as they are holding pressure.

As always the forum rocks

Order 4. It's the most economical. Run the numbers w/shipping and you'll see.

I bought my kegging starter kit and more kegs from them later. Good customer service. They sent me a bad regulator, and immediately replaced it when I called. Kegs were dirty but worked just fine. Good place.

I also just jumped on their keg deal. Was pleased with the condition of the kegs compared to the price. Shipping was a bit slow, but I think that was UPS's fault and not theirs. The shipment left their facility in a day, was hovering around my house for a good 3-4 days.

I bought from them this summer and I have an order being shipped at this minute.
No problems with their service.
