A: Draft beer is definitely better than bottled, but canned can be better than draft . Light and oxygen are the enemies of beer . Draft beers usually move faster, and if you’re replacing kegs more often, that usually means fresher beer . So, in terms of quality and turnover, it’s draft , then cans, then bottles.
A quarter barrel, more commonly known as pony keg , is a beer vessel containing approximately 7.75 U.S. gallons (29.33 liters) of fluid. It is half the size of the standard beer keg and equivalent to a quarter of a barrel.
Large liquor retailers like “Liquor Barn” are going to be the most inexpensive places to buy kegs , aside from the actual brewery ( if they even sell on-site). If you can get a keg at a smaller retailer closer to you , you should consider it, though, because it will save you gas money.
However, I’ve found the kegs are invariably more expensive per beer than buying bottles or cans. For example, to rent a keg of Lagunitas from TotalWine is $220. That’s 164 12oz beers at $1.34 per serving, not including cups, ice, tap rental, etc. Totalwine sells the same beer in 12 packs for $14.
