Default How wide is a keg?

How wide is a standard half barrel keg, 1/4 barrel keg, and those 5 gallon soda kegs? I am trying to see if I can fit 2 soda kegs into a 1/2 barrel fridge. Suprisingly I can't find out the dimensions of any of these very easily on the internet.

Thanks for the help!

Soda kegs are about 8.5" wide...

in a 1/2 barrel fridge, you should be able to squeeze 3 cornies if you are inventive

Yep! Makes perfect sense if you think about it... 1/2bbl is about 15g of beer, just as 3 corny kegs is about 15g...

Probably need to arrange them in a triangle kind of, but it *should* work in most of those commercial kegerators that hold sankey 1/2bbl kegs.
