Need a good keg of beer

a

We are having a fundraiser at our house on Saturday and we want to buy a good keg of beer. We'd love to have Craftsman beer but we can't figure out where to get it. Does anyone know where we can get kegs of something other than Miller Light?
THANKS!

    Depends on Where you are. If you are on the west side you might try the Beverage Warehouse but you may be too late to order anything they might not have. But they normally have a good selection of things not Miller light and the price is reasonable

      Beverages and More (BevMo) carries all kinds of beer in kegs. This is the link to the main "beer" page of their website: http://www.bevmo.com/productlist.asp?... -- go take a look.

        For a fundraiser, Mark might be willing to sell you kegs right from the Craftsman brewery. I mean, as long as its not a baby seal clubbing fundraiser email him:
        mark@craftsmanbrewing.com

        or Call:
        626-296-ALES (2537)
        His name is Mark Jilg, and he's a really nice guy.

        Bevmo (beverages and more) often has a good selection of Kegs.

        Vendome, at least the Toluca Lake one, may help you.

          I get kegs from Craftsman pretty regularly, but Mark did say that he's trying to phase out direct sales...I think they are just too much trouble with the business growing and all.

          But the only way to get them is to call and pick them up from the brewery directly. It's usually one of the best errands to run, since he'll usually offer you a taste of his latest brew when he's in a good mood.

            Yeah, but he's such a nice guy if he hears it's for a fundraiser, he'd take whatever trouble he could to sell Abbyabby a keg

          So I did contact Mark and he is a very nice guy! Unfortunately, they are already supplying the beer for the Colorado Street Bridge fundraiser tomorrow and they don't have enough beer for me!! but he said if I was having another fundraiser another time for any other progressive candidate I should call back! Anyway--thanks all--BevMo it is! (great selection anyway.)

            Sorry you missed out, AbbyAbby...but not TOO sorry, since I'll be at the Bridge Party!
