What breweries are using these kegs, wondering if they are available in my area as well?

The only thing I've seen in them so far is 21st Amendment.

$59 plus shipping, I am not that curious One note, these are 11 1/4" wide, so they will take a bit more room in the keezer.

Just picked one up from www.home-brew.com, my LHBS, to give it a try. I have a new SS corny, but I always have trouble getting it to seal well. I'm looking to try a Sanke style keg to cut down on the areas where it can leak. Figured this was worth a try and no snap ring to have to worry about. Only question I have is how well I can get the valve cleaned. LHBS said they can get the replacement internals for me if need be. I spend more on ingredient kits than this keg cost me, so no big deal to me if it doesn't work out. I can also get the ball lock conversion kit for the Sanke valve I have to reuse the corny equipment investment.

By internals do you mean the whole inner, or the valve/diptube? I can't figure out how to take the valve out or apart on mine: I had come to the conclusion that it doesn't come apart.
