Hey guys.

I have been on the lookout for some corny kegs and through a few other posts on here, decided to start my own group buy for kegs here in Wisconsin to see if there is any interest.

These kegs are coming from a main supplier in Forida.

Prices start at $28 per keg plus shipping and could drop even more as we add more quantity. Let me know if you have any ideas and here is what he had quoted me.

"I went ahead and got some pricing details and shipping rates on 4,8, and 20 kegs(which is what fits on a pallet.)

4 kegs @ $28 each + $38 shipping = $150 ($37.50 per keg)
8 kegs @ $28 each + $72 shipping = $296 ($37.00 per keg)
20 kegs @ $27.50 each + $125 shipping = $675 ($33.75 per keg)


I might be able to ship but I would rather have you pick them up from the Fondy area.

I will keep this open for a little while if there is enough interest.

I will start a google docs spreadsheet for anyone to look at as well.

I will put myself down for 5 kegs to get things started...

I can afford 3 if we get past the 20 keg mark.

I'm in Green Bay and was actually going to order from this dude as well. I've got a couple other guys interested and was going to grab 9 of them...I would drive down as far as Oshkosh to pick them up if it was enough to get over the pallet-load quantity. To and from FDL is 2+ hours, and not enough of those kegs are for me to make it worthwhile...I don't have enough drinking time as-is.

Otherwise if there are people in the Appleton and northern area, I could be persuaded to up *my* order to a 20-pack. (sorry to threadjack)

I think we should be able to find someone to head up to Oshkosh to meet you. If worse comes to worse, I may be able to as well.

I got a message Friday from McEwer and they are starting to get low on the $28 kegs. If you have a pallet quantity (20) with my 9, I'm in. Otherwise I will plan to put an order in Monday or Tuesday.

I'm in Madison but make my way up to Green Bay quite often. I'll be in for up to 3 if it rounds out the order to a pallet. I can also facilitate delivery to Green Bay for others as well.

I work in Kaukauna so getting to the Oshkosh area after work isn't a huge challenge. And if nothing else, the guy who organizes the keg buy deserves a beer on me...and possibly everyone else.

Assuming everyone who's posted is still in, it looks like this could be a go if JonGrafto is still willing.

I just emailed the distributor this morning to get exact charges. I will update an post the spreadsheet. I will pm the totals over when he responds and we can do PayPal. Please send as a gift so neither of us are charged any fees.
