If a pint of Piney River Brewing beer is good and a growler of Piney River Brewing beer is better, how does a keg of Piney River Brewing beer sound?  If you’ve got a kegerator or an upcoming event, we can now provide kegs of our handcrafted ales for your drinking pleasure.

Here’s what you’ll soon see on our web site:

Kegs to go are now available at Piney River Brewing Company.  Please contact us via e-mail (brian@pineyriverbrewing.com) or via phone (417/967-6786) to reserve a keg of beer.  Not all of our beer styles are currently available in kegs.  Keg pricing varies, based on style.

Our kegs

5.16 Gallon or 1/6 Barrel Keg
Equivalent to 40 pints or 55 bottles

Dimensions:  23.5” x 9.5”

Lbs full:  58

Keg Rental Policy

Items must be returned within 30 days of the date of purchase.  After your initial 30 day time period is up, we will process your deposit (i.e. cash your check). Do not despair; if you bring back the keg and tap in good working order at a later date, we’ll gladly buy them back from you for the same dollar amount of your original deposit.

Deposits
Our keg and tap rentals are FREE; however, we do require a cash or check deposit of $100 for each keg (and tap, if needed).  Your deposit must be secured with cash or check and will be refunded upon return of all equipment in good condition. Repairs to damaged equipment will be deducted from the deposit.

 

Keg Dimensions
Dimensions may vary due to different keg manufacturers, so we’ve attempted to give the maximum dimensions. Dimensions are without taps.

Please remember that with our kegs, your first choice of beer style is not guaranteed.  Make sure to contact us for style availability.  Not everything in draft is available in kegs.

Commonly Asked Questions

Q: How do I tap a keg?

A:  We’ll show you.

Q: How long will kegged beer keep and why does it go flat?

A:  Tapping your keg with a party pump is like opening a 2-liter bottle of soda — it puts air into the container. CO2 then escapes the liquid and dissipates into the air, making the beer more flat. The will keep for a few days if you keep the beer cold, but it progressively changes in taste with each day it’s exposed to air.

Q: If I plan on drinking the keg over a period of a few days, what should I do?

A:  The best thing to do is to untap the keg and keep the beer on ice or in a refrigerator.  Cold beer will hang on to its CO2 longer. Do not pump more air into it; that will just oxidize the beer faster.

Q: What causes beer to foam?

A:  Primarily, beer will foam when it is warm. Bouncing it down the stairs won’t help. Keep it on ice and keep it still and you will have a happy keg.
