    I've gone all Bear Republic this time around ... 1/2 of Racer 5 (always good) and 1/6 of Red Rocket (also solid). I've been using BevMo for the past couple of years to get kegs. Decent prices, and once you get to know the people that order and work with distributors, they'll often get most any beers requested, as long as distributor can get them. I've been able to get a few great Belgians over the years that way (though they are pricey). Lower keg costs can be had by working directly with Breweries too ... I know Drakes, and Lagunitas for sure sell kegs direct here in Bay Area.

    Tap 1: Fat Heads Head Hunter
    Tap 2: Bare Hands 7c's IPA #2

    To be honest, I am disappointed in the Head Hunter. Keg was 3 weeks old when I bought it and it tastes nothing like the bottles I have consumed over the past 6 months. Not terrible by any means, but had I known the tap version was that different I would have chosen something different.

    Bare Hands 7c's is excellent.

    I was able to get a 1/2 barrel of Rogue Double Chocolate Stout for $64, so I'll be drinking that for a while.

    Can't wait to experiment with a French Press.

    I have currently Victory Storm King Stout and I just tapped Sam Adams Ofest.

    Update here...I returned the Head Hunter. The rep for the distributor did taste it and confirmed that there is definitely something wrong with it. First time I have ever had to return a keg (or had a quality issue). Good news is that a new keg is on the way. Glad the distributor stood being their product. Also kudo's to City Wide in South Bend for being an awesome beer store....they were determined to make the situation right regardless. They'll always get my business.

    Great! I was sooooo disappointed in your story of the Head Hunter keg. I have a case of it at home (trying it for the first time) I just got that was dated mid September. It's not normally available here, but I got a lucky score from a guy who got it from Pittsburgh. It is so damn delicious! I was salivating thinking of having a keg of it until I read your post, but now I feel better. If this beer was available all the time here in Eastern PA, I'd be having a keg of it on tap all year long. Fantastic, fantastic beer!

    My latest update. Just tapped a Sierra Nevada Celebration and I'm picking up tonight a Port Brewing High Tide fresh hop IPA. That one's going to be dangerous.
