Scrap yards do not accept "recycled" kegs or are not supposed to. Breweries have been on a campaign to inform scrap yards that these are not to be recycled. That they were probably stolen from the back of a bar.

I think the beer industry should do more to protect themselves if they are worth $130 dollars they should charge that as a deposit. The distributors should also pay that for anyone that is returned.

Bars would not store their kegs "out back" anymore.

Homebrewers might consider other ways to brew 13 gallon batches.

My kegs came from a guy that used to own a bar but no longer did. The distributor would not return his deposit for the kegs and asked him to deliver the kegs to them. I was much more accommodating, apparently the kegs were worth more to me than they were to the distributor.

If AB wanted to keep their kegs in circulation they would make efforts to insure their return or at least be willing to retrieve them.
