Yep, you're right. I'll never brew without feeling a bit guilty. Guess I'm calling Switchback tomorrow.

Good luck up there M_C! I've got a My Antonia right here in my left "gulp" hand.

I don't know Switchback too well, but my guess is that they'll take care of you for your honesty. I know *I* would.

As someone else said, you may get rewarded in one way or another. Just tell them the story. They should at least fill a growler or tell you to keep the keg.

Here we go again...

I must say thank you for the laughs on this one. Return a keg that was found in a river? Bravo!

I've never read such chivalry, such awesome integrity, as I do whenever someone mentions keeping a microbrewer's keg. What a sight to see! Imagine if you guys applied your high level of morality to everything in life! Even with just 'ye few, world peace would be but a speed-bump on the road to Utopia!

Again, I wish I could say this with certainty (I don't know you guys obviously), but if the super-karma, super-moral, keg-returners-at-all-costs (except in the case of BMC)'ers applied such super-human righteousness to the rest of their lives as they do to micro-brewery kegs, the world would be a much better place.

(PS... somewhere on this forum I posted the legalese regarding keg transfers in NY State. Cliff notes? Whether craft, micro, or BMC, you can keep it in NY... extra points if you fish it out of a raging river).

Be sure to flame the bar that lost it.... Quite the boy scout to fish it and return it but as the others said the potential reward could be pretty awesome!

It all starts with the man in the mirror.

I'll have to go find a keg and test your theory out since I don't use keggles

Of course, I promise it will be from Sixpoint or Brooklyn Brewery, both highly respectable craft breweries worthy of having their kegs returned even after quests Indiana Jones would be jealous of!

Thinking about it today while brewing; I got my keg from work in September after noticing that it had been on the back dock for what I guessed was two years. Funny thing is it's a AB keg that was filled with Flat Tire??? Got it home and emptied it(still half full) and noticed a best by date printed on the side of February 2008(gross). Really don't feel bad since the back dock is where the empties go for pickup and this had been sitting for that long. Pretty sure it was written off quite some time before I got to it.
