Kegs to go are available at the brewery. We also fill growlers -- bring your own or purchase a spiffy Georgetown Brewing Growler for $12/$13 ($7/$8 for refill). See below for our keg rental policy, keg sizes/pricing, and answers to commonly asked questions. Call 206-766-8055 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or use our Web App 48 hours in advance to reserve your keg and we will send a confirmation email of the reservation. Directions to the brewery and business hours for keg pick-up and return are here.
Our keg and tap rentals are FREE; however, we do require a cash, check, or credit card deposit of $50 for each tap and $100 for each keg that is taken out. Kegs with taps must be returned within 10 days of the date of purchase. Kegs without taps (for people with kegerators) must be returned within 60 days of the date of purchase. After your deposit period is up, we will process your deposit (i.e. cash your check). Do not despair, if you bring back the keg and tap in good working order at a later date, we'll gladly refund your original deposit. We do NOT guarantee to have all our beers in all keg sizes, so please call ahead to reserve your keg.
Because some of our beers cost more to make, we have two prices. The good news is, most of our beer is the lower price (Manny's, Roger's, Chopper's, and Porter). Only Lucille, eddie, and our specialty beers have a premium cost.

- How long will an unopened growler last if kept cold?
- Two weeks.
- How do I tap a keg?
- We'll show you.
- How long will kegged beer keep and why does it go flat?
- It will keep for a few days if you keep the beer cold, but it progressively changes in taste with each day it's exposed to air. Tapping your keg with a party pump is like opening a 2-liter bottle of soda -- it puts air into the container. CO2 then escapes the liquid and dissipates into the air, making the beer more flat. If the keg is constantly kept cool and under pressure in a kegerator, it will keep up to 8 weeks.
- How much CO2 do I need?
- It depends on the number and size of keg(s). Check out this chart.
- If I plan on drinking the keg over a period of a few days, what should I do?
- Best thing to do is to untap the keg and keep the beer on ice! Cold beer will hang on to its CO2 longer. Do not pump more air into it -- that'll just oxidize the beer faster. Or... you could buy yourself a home CO2 draft beer system and be cool like we are.
- What causes beer to foam?
- Primarily, beer will foam when it is warm. Bouncing it down the stairs won't help. Keep it on ice and keep it still and you will have a happy keg.
- How much does a keg weigh?
- A full keg weighs between 155-165 lbs, so be careful moving it, macho man. No need to give yourself a hernia. We'll help you load it but you're on your own to unload.
- How big is a keg?
- 1/2 barrel - About 16" across by 24" high
- 1/4 barrel - About 16" across by 14" high
- 1/6 barrel - About 9.5" across by 24" high
- Mini - About 9.5" across by 14" high
