We regularly get our kegs back at Troegs with "Lite" and a batch code printed on them, or "Banquet" and a batch code, etc etc. The big breweries don't give two hoots about whose keg it is, they just fill it anyway. All the big breweries do this. This poor guy paid the price.

I can see this policy changing, however.

Getting someone else's kegs is a pain. They take up space and the distributor often doesn't want to waste trailer space getting them back to their proper owners.
