You can fill them up with water at different levels and play drums on them.

are they stainless? coated mild steel? Aluminum?
If they are stainless I could think of a lot of uses!

Stainless of course! Nothing but food use. 40 gallon barrells

Make a 1bbl 3 vessel brewing system
Use them for rain water/wort-chilling water harvesting
Sell them for a bunch of money each (over 150 a piece easy)

I would turn them into either fermentors or boil kettles/MLT/HLT. If you don't want to do that I would sell them and buy something useful for your brewery
