Default acquired kegs on craigslist and 2 are full! could they be drinkable?

i acquired three kegs from a lady on craigslist that bought them at a restaurant auction. two of them seem to be full and the kegs look brand new. they have been stored outside for several months and no other info is known. one is a sierra nevada and the other miller.

what are the odds they are any good?

Pretty low. On the other hands the odds that they still belong to Sierra Nevada and Miller respectively is about 100%.

You could pour a glass and find out. You never really know what is in it though, and would definitely be safer just to dump.

You'll never know until you try. What's the worst that could happen, you have a sip of nasty beer? It won't kill you.

Unless the kegs are filled with poison. Then it could kill you.

Google it. Magic 8 ball. Perhaps a soothsayer, such as a tarot card reader, or a fortune teller can look at the lines on your hand and just "know".

Or you could just taste it. For god's sake.

so you are a property law expert? kegs were at a restaurant, restaurant went out of business and auction was posted publicly, said companies had a state mandated period of time to claim goods before auction. kegs not claimed, kegs sold!

I guess i should have asked "if its beer in there, could it kill me or make me wish i was dead?"
