    Don't even know if this is the right thread for my post? I wanted to know if there is a list Internet or where ever I can find whAt beers are in 1/6 barrels that are distributed in the upstate of South Carolina? I googled I just see what total wine, Greens etc carry in stock but say they take request. I would just like a list and just use it as a check list. Thanks!

    You need to see if the stores have a keg list and go from there, just because a brewery offers a particular size doesn't mean it will make it into your market or to your store. The keg list doesn't always tell the whole story either - it usually lists the ones the do volume in. They can order more beyond what they show. Once I narrow down my choices from a list, sampling bottles or on tap at a bar, I ask what sizes are available. You can also browse the cooler at your local store, and chances are if they have it in bottles then can get it in some form of keg. Not always 1/6ths though, in my experience. For example Harpoon's Rye IPA is sold in 1/6ths, but in my market I can only get it in halves.

    I usually go on seekabrew and then go through things distributed to RI and make a list and then ask the store if they can get those and they call me back and tell me what sizes and what prices.

    Sixtel of Morgantown Brewing Co. Two Weeks Lager. It's SUMMER & wanted an easy drinking lager different from Yuengling Lager & availability it so easy when you can text brewers in the AM & pickup the 1/6 during happy hour. What's not to love?

    I'm just curious for you people with taps (especially more than one) ... do you have friends and family help you drink it up, or do you just leave it on tap awhile until you finish it? How long would that usually take? I'd want to get a tap or two in the future, but I imagine the beer going south before I were to finish the 1/6 kegs. How long is beer "good" in kegs?

    You can get 2-3 months out of a keg in my experience. I run a pair of sixths all the time, never had an issue with one going bad. I've gotten bored with some, but never had off taste. It also depends on the style.

    Has anyone ever had a 1/6 barrel of BCBS. I wonder how long that would last before it went bad.
