Kegs are available for purchase through the Wiley Roots taproom. Some brands may have limited availability from time to time. Kegs are filled on demand and are not stocked for taproom patrons. Any keg orders should be placed at least one week in advance.
Wiley Roots does not lease or loan out tapping equipment at this time. Many of our local liquor store partners are happy to assist and have a supply of tapping equipment. Please note that certain tapping equipment compresses air to supply beer from the keg, thus introducing oxygen levels to the keg which will deteriorate the beer quality in a short amount of time. So, be sure to order the appropriate size keg for your party or event to ensure you’re getting the most bang for your buck!
Wiley Roots fills the following keg sizes:
- ½ Barrel Kegs: 15.5 gallons or approximately 120-16oz pours
- ¼ Barrel Kegs: 7.75 gallons or approximately 60-16oz pours
- ⅙ Barrel Kegs: 5.17 gallons or approximately 40-16oz pours
Keg shells and deposits:
We will only fill a Wiley Roots branded keg — PERIOD. Kegs are generally the property of the brewery that is branded on the side of the keg. Most deposits collected on keg shells are limited to the scrap value of the keg, and do not reflect the purchase price or secondary market value for a keg shell. Wiley Roots charges $30 as a deposit and requires the keg to be returned to the brewery with 90 days. At 90 days, two efforts will be made to contact the holder of the keg. After two efforts, the credit card maintained on file will be charged the full replacement value of the keg ($80-$120 depending upon the size).
