Keg Facts

New Logo


I researched how much beer I would need for about 30-50 guests because  I do not want to be the host that has a bar in his house and runs out of beer while the party is in full swing.

In performing my “research” I stumbled upon a few interesting facts about keg:

  • A Keg weighs 136 pounds
  • A keg holds 15 gallons of beer.
  • A keg has 25,810 calories.
  • A keg can serve 141 red cups of beer.

141 red cups of beer  is enough for 41 men to be over the legal limit in New York.

A similar quantity of beer in cans requires 6½ cases, or 165 cans of beer:

Kegs can serve about 141 red cups of beer at a cost of 62¢ each.

Do you accept WIC?

      It was kinda cool to run out at midnight and everyone was like oh no….but I had a keg hidden in the garage in a tub in ice with a blanket over it. No one saw it so when I emerged from the garage with it, I kind felt like a super hero for a split second.
