Where's the best place to buy a keg (or 2) in Manhattan?If you are not lucky enough to have a kegerator, you might want to pick up a keg of beer for some celebrating. It seems like the largest places with the most selection are going to be outside Manhattan, but we did find out that Heartland Brewery sells kegs, and they have locations all throughout the city. (And we find their beer mighty tasty).
New York Beverage, one of the largest retail and wholesale beverage warehouses located in New York City delivers kegs throughout the city. They are located in the Bronx.
There's also American Beer Distributing (Thrify American) in Cobble Hill to consider. They don't have a web site, but you can reach them the old fashioned way at 718-875-0226.
Something to keep in mind, the New York State Liquor Authority has imposed it's own deposit law. They are charging a $75.00 deposit for "each" keg, 1/4 keg or any container that holds 4 or more gallons of beer. This is in addition to any deposit that the vendor itself will charge.
Anyone else have good or bad experiences with getting kegs in the city?
