If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. Also if anyone else wants to get in for a second palet, we can do that as long as it equates to 20 more... Thanks!

I have tried to call and email McEver (the distributor) and they have not returned either.
I am not sure why they are not responding?
I will continue to pursue them. I just didnt want anyone to think I was just sitting on my thumbs over here!!!

I just spoke with Fred @ McEver. He said that they are currently out of the kegs right now but he is getting a rather large shipment in on Monday/Tuesday next week.

I will keep in touch with them. Let me know if you guys have any questions or issues.

I would prefer PayPal payment (sent as a gift) but just hold off for a minute until McEver gets back to me. Until then, I think we can still add on and possibly get more people to jump on the group buy if they are still interested.

Thanks!

I am going to kill this buy... I have had no response back from McEwer since he said he would have a "new" shipment this week. If this is any indication of the customer service being provided, I would rather not make the deal. I apologize to those following the thread and I appreciate those who were looking at purchasing these.

I have been calling them and emailing them like crazy also with no luck. Poorly run company, every time I get a live person they canít believe that the guy who quoted me wonít call me back but they refuse to take the order and wonít help either! If anyone knows of another company please let me know. I am try to get 20-40 kegs myself.

Thanks for all the work you put in on this buy... shame it didn't work out this time. I'll keep my eyes open if anyone in the area tries something similar in the near future.

I don't know if it makes any difference to any of you, but I emailed McEwer back last week and they said they had a ton of kegs ready to go. I put an order in for 9 because the local guys I was buying with were getting impatient. Still $28 per keg, and shipping was $85 total (two boxes with four, one box with one keg).

They were very pleasant to deal with. The 800 number apparently goes to Fred's house and he answers it when he's having dinner with his family - and he won't do business during dinner. I kind of felt like a tool but they still took my money the next morning.

So, if you felt like you got the run-around, that wasn't my experience at all. Perhaps try again?
