Default 60 Min IPA Commercial Keg temp

Hey, I'm from Massachusetts and can't get Dogfish kegs. I went to a liquor store in DE and a guy is trying to get rid of his last one for $80 (1/2 keg). Problem is I'm at training for work and stuck in a hotel room at room temp for the next 13 days. Will this keg be fresh when I drive it home and throw it in my fridge??

Appreciate the help, I'd like to get the keg, but only if it will be fresh.

Talk to the liquor store guy. Maybe you buy it now and he can store it for you until you're ready to head home.

Thanks, he's trying to severely discount it to free up some space for his fridge. College season is approaching and I think he's going to make a lot of money on Keystone and Natural light kegs in the next week or two.

yeah, I need to shower once a day for two weeks... AC with a towel or blanket over half of it would be the best bet. I highly doubt it will get under 65. I guess my question is, if this keg is stored at 65-70 deg for two weeks will it have an effect on it??
