There are a number of bars in Hattiesburg, but the Keg is certainly on its own level. The establishment was formed through the refabrication of an old home. So, whether you're sitting inside or outside on the porch/patio, you're in a very quaint and homey atmosphere. Indeed for some of us it's much like being home again.

The selection is outstanding in regard both to quantity and quality. My favorite time to visit was always in the Fall so that I could get the pumpkin seasonals that they would offer.

There are often small-ensemble performances set up at the Keg, usually formed from the local USM Music School faculty and/or students.

If you love beer and are passing close to Hattiesburg you MUST stop and try the Keg and Barrel. It is the best beer place in Mississippi by far I have found.

The folks know beer and are always willing to let you sample a couple before you make a choice.

The food is always very good here, can't recall anything I have tried that disappointed.

Not much to complain about. If anything they are victims of their own success and the house (yes the house) fills quickly on weekend nights and is very busy.

If I want to hit them on a weekend I don't try after say 8 p.m. But for lunch or early dinner you will are missing out if you skip the K&B crew.

They use to brew beer at the location until it got so popular they moved that part of the operation which became Southern Prohibition Brewing. SPB offers tours on Fridays from 4-6, free to military. Everyone else pays $4 which includes tastings from your take home glass (about 4 ounce size).

These folks are CRAFT BEER in the area and support home brew contests etc. The local brew club holds meetings there.

Stop by, have a couple, buy a shirt, really enjoy yourself.

Easily the best beer bar in the state. All other beer bars aspire to be like this one.

Beautiful tap wall with over 60 taps. They constantly get new beers and rotate in seasonal beers. Dart room, Huge Deck with outside bar, Outdoor Heaters, Porch seating, Terrace for live music out back.

Things I have experienced at the Keg and Barrel at random times...
Homebrew Contest with over 70+ entries...
Chili Contest...
Live Music...(from Cedric Burnside, Richard Johnson.. to a legit Irish Band on St Pats)
Rowdy crowd during some soccer matches...
Stone Brewing/NOLA brewing conglam release party...
Outside bar on a huge 100 foot+ long deck...
Beer Club which shares beers/home brews amongs a group of people...
Bingo to win free beers...
Women who know beer....
Men who don't know beer...

But seriously...I have alot of great memories and can't wait to make more at one of the top 100 bars in the US (Beer Magazine)

Cheers! Salut! Prost !Будем здоровы! Sláinte
