Consider that the average cost for a standard half barrel keg of Budweiser is approximately $100. A standard keg contains 15.5 gallons, or 1,984 ounces. A case of Budweiser contains twenty-four 12oz. cans (288 total ounces) and costs about $23.
Basic, domestic draft beers like Budweiser, Coors, and Miller are much cheaper than microbrews and craft beers — a keg of Budweiser is around $100, while something like Dogfish Head is twice that. But even if that keg costs you a couple hundred bucks, it’s still pretty cheap when you think about the cost per drink.

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.

“If you plan on about one drink per hour per guest for a 150-person reception that lasts 5 hours, you’d need around 750 drinks.” So that would mean, if you’re only serving beer, you could use up to six kegs or nearly 30 24 -packs of bottles or cans.
Buying cases of Costco beer are less expensive on its own. However, once you take into account the other expenses and inconveniences of getting a keg (such as cups, ice, keg , and tap deposit), Costco beer may be a clear cut better choice.
This is what most people know as “a keg,” but the half barrel name throws them off. One of these has 15.5 gallons of beer in it. That means you can get 165 12 oz. beers from it, or 124 16 oz.

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.
on the brewery, beers are kegged in various size containers, as follows: 1/2 barrel = 15.5 gallons = 124 pints = 165 12oz bottles – (Full Size Keg) 1/4 barrel = 7.75 gallons = 62 pints = 83 12oz bottles (Pony Keg) 1/6 barrel (20 Ltr) = 5.2 gallons = 41 pints = 55 12oz bottles (Sixtel)
You may think buying is cheaper , but if you have some of the supplies at home or available at a lower cost, you can build an amazing kegerator for cheaper than most store-bought brands. Kegerators are relatively simple machines that do not require too much of the expensive equipment, unless you want that of course.
Depending on the kegerator you buy , you may need to pick up a few important parts and accessories before you can tap that keg. Make sure you have the following: Keg coupler. CO2 tank. Beer and air lines. Double gauge CO2 regulator. Air tank wrench. Spanner wrench. Economy beer line cleaning kit.
This costs €150, which works out at around €2.90 per pint. You should store the keg in a cool space with no sunlight, ideally under 10 degrees, but storing usually is not needed for the home as you just order the keg and immediately tap it after letting it sit for a day to calm it down after transport.”
