KEG FAQs

This is the space where we shed some light on the questions we get asked regularly about what we do.

How much notice do you need?

We hold a great range of the popular beers and ciders in stock however some kegs do need to be ordered in. 7 days notice is recommended.

How do I get the beer or cider out of the keg?

All of our keg packs include a single-tap beer dispensing unit to tap your keg and chill your beer/cider as it pours. If you're looking to pour multiple kegs, or prefer a full bar set up, our bars for hire can be viewed here. 

How many beers do I get out of a keg?

Heaps!  A 50 litre keg gives you about 175 pots  or 118 schooners (175 x 285ml or 118 x 425ml glasses).

Can I keep the keg?

The keg itself always remains property of the brewery that it came from, so essentially you're just buying the beer or cider inside it. 

How long do I keep the keg?

Kegs with our bars or beer dispensing units:
Our drivers will pick your keg up along with the equipment the day after your event.  If your event is on a Saturday we'll see you Monday!

Kegs for your own kegerator:

You can keep the keg until its empty, when you place a new order, we'll drop off the new keg and pick up the empty one. 

Do I need something to put my beer dispensing unit on?

Yep, you'll need a table.  If you don't have one don't forget to add one of our trestles to your order.  We'll deliver it with your unit, set it up, put a fancy cover on it so it looks schmick and then you're good to go.

What do I get with my beer system package?
  • a beer dispensing unit and ice to keep your keg flowing cold
  • all lines, fittings, and a tap
  • your chosen keg
  • a gas bottle to keep your keg flowing until its empty
  • a bag of ice to get you started
  • red American frat cups
Do I need experience to pour the beer?

No experience necessary, it's easy peezy.  When we deliver your equipment, we'll set it up and then give you a quick lesson, you'll be pouring perfect beers in no time.

What about wastage?

Unlike most old school systems in the market our top secret design minimises wastage and keeps your beer flowing cold.

Do I need to pay a bond?

No, we don't take a bond we just ask you to complete a credit card authority on deliver of your equipment.  We'll only use this authority if equipment is lost, not returned, or damage - but we'll talk to you about this when and if it occurs.

How much notice do we need?

We have a huge range of kegs always in stock, but some kegs are ordered in especially for you. 7 days is a great amount of notice where we will be able to help you with which ever keg you are after. Keep in mind we do have limited equipment so this can book out.

How many kegs do I need?

Good question! How long is a piece of string? No seriously, we can help you work out how much alcohol you'll need using our nifty formula.  Just talk to our staff and we will calculate exactly what you need.

How much is delivery?

Delivery rates vary based on your order, your location, and the timing of your event. You can find more information here. 

Can I pick up the gear myself?

You're more than welcome to come and visit to pick up! Our friendly team will demonstrate the setup, how to use the equipment and answer any questions you may have. Our Victorian warehouse is in West Footscray & our New South Wales warehouse is in Taren Point.

Can I just hire equipment?
