I have always wondered why there were two types of soda kegs. It seemed to me as though through the years, the industry would have settled on the one that worked best and kegs would have been standardized.

That was before I learned that ball lock kegs held Pepsi products and pin lock kegs were for Coke products. HA! The cola wars eventually extended into homebrewing!

How about that?
