Just picked up a 1/4 of Founders Porter for $70.

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.
Ok, thank you.
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.
Ok great idea, thanks.
Tommyknocker butthead bock flowing right now.

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?
1/6 Harpoon IPA, just installed last Friday....Why did I wait so long?
My Hoptimum is on it's last leg. Next up, Victory Liberty Bell Ringer DIPA.
Just put in a 1/6th of Coronado Stingray Point IPA (fantastic stuff) and a 1/4 of Founder's Rübœus (expensive, but the wife loves it)
both home brewed
Just got a Sixtel of Sam Adams Lager and Sixtel Sierra Neveda Pale Ale.
Here's my set up in the back yard with my Coronado Brewing Stingray Point IPA keg and my Founders Rübœus keg...nice and fresh!
Fiddlehead IPA and a homebrewed RYE PA with lots simcoe and Citra!
Allagash interlude and goose island paradisi. Loving summer.
Troegs Sunshine Pils just tapped this weekend. Looking for some wit/hefe/wife-friendly summer beer for the other tap.
Harpoon IPA 1/6 GONE!....Now: 1/6 Wachusett Light IPA (Westminster, MA) and 1/6 Peak Organic IPA (Portland, ME)
Just tapped Ballast Point Sculpin 1/6 keg in my home bar.
I have a lil bit left of a pale ale I made. I have an amber ale I brewed up a couple weeks ago still in the fermenter waiting to be kegged.
Just tapped a log of Ithaca Flower Power and plan on putting a log of Flying Jenny on, on Friday.

Tap 1- not your fathers root beer 19.5%
Tap 2- delirium tremens
Can I ask where you ordered this from and how long it took to get?
I ordered it at wine world in east Brunswick. Ordered it on a Tuesday and got it on Friday.
Should be able to be ordered by almost any store selling kegs in NJ. Since they all buying it from hunterdon brewing
Thanks man, heading over to my local TW today to order.
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.
i got a sixtel of Sam Adams Oktoberfest in mine
Have a 1/2 bbl Sam in mine. Family came over and helped me lighten it a bit this weekend. Great Lakes OFest next in 1/6 or 1/2 , depends on what I can get.
Has anyone ever had a 1/6 barrel of BCBS. I wonder how long that would last before it went bad.
