    Beverages and More has a great selection of kegs, including Speakeasy. You can view online at www.bevmo.com

    You can also order and pick up your own kegs directly from Speakeasy - I believe they're on Evans down by the post office.

      Bevmo has a decent selection of 5 gallon kegs if you're looking for a variety. It didn't look like you save much money going for larger sizes, though I didn't price around.

      Friday before 4th of July weekend they had a few 5 gallon sierra nevada kegs in stock, but they don't get new stock over the weekend (at least according to the guy working at the bayshore one). They do let you reserve kegs, though they messed up and reserved a large one.

      Magnolia does normal kegs and 5 gallon kegs, too. Can't remember the prices (they're not on the website), I doubt if they deliver.

          Drake's in San Leandro has kegs. They have a "happy hour" in the parking lot on Friday evenings, so you could pick up at that time and have a pint while you are there. Call ahead and see what's available.

            I've heard about Drake's. I like the happy hour idea. I'm thinking of going with a Big Daddy, since it's close and in my eyes, an unparalelled beer. If only Moonlight Brews wre easier to come by. Thanks for the heads up.

            I was at a BBQ in the park a few weekends ago and they had a couple of kegs from Beach Chalet. The beer was pretty good, though drinking out of a plastic cup is never ideal, but the hostess acted like it was affordable for kegs of 'good' beer. Beach Chalet is on the west end of the park on Great Highway.

                I'd prefer to patronize The Jug Shop over BevMo...

                    Try Liquor Locker on el Camino in San Bruno.

                      Zip right over to Thirsty Bear Brewing @ 661 Howard, SF.


                      Ask for Brendan Dobel, the brewmaster, for info from the pro....

                      Fresh beer's >much< better than shipped beer waiting on a shelf or stored in the back room.
