My wife got me a cooler that holds 5 liter mini kegs as well as a mini keg of Warsteiner for Christmas. I am curious who all offers their beer in 5L mini kegs and if their are any websites I could order from. I love that she supports my beer drinking but I’m afraid it may be of limited use due to availability of 5L minikegs. I would love to here from any other 5L mini keggers out there. If anyone is in Vegas come by and help me finish this thing, a minikeg is like thirteen 12oz beers and you need to finish it in a day or two before it goes flat.

Kapuziner Hefe Weizen, Monkschoff Schwarzbier, DAB, Coors Light, as well as the one’s listed above are the one’s I’ve seen.

Ask your local retailer/beer store what he can get for you.

On a side note, a friend of mine’s wife asked me about the same thing your wife got you! I steered her away from it for one of the same reasons you stated. Lots of beer, not a lot of time to be able to drink it without going stale.

I’ve seen some small breweries/brewpubs use these like Old Hickory in NC and Gritty’s in ME.

Time to setup some trades!

I have a gallon cask of Fyne Ales Porter in my garage not a clue where you would get one online though

You can buy Shlenkerla Rauchbier ’Party Kegs’ from the brewery website haha, I can’t even imagine how smelly a rauchbier party would be, and how few women would attend, would be nice to have a keg to oneself though

Reisdorf and Stiegl are doing 5 liter cans, too.

I’ve seen Schlenkerla in 5 liter kegs as well. Not sure on the urbock, but pretty sure about the marzen and weizen. I would get that first if possible since you have rated the urbock highly.

For our Christmas party we had a 2 year old 5L of Church Brew Works Millenium Trippel, and it was delicious! They also do their Pious Monk in the 5L kegs.

Thanks to all for their input. I was glad to see Schlenkerla as an available 5L, if I can only find some.

Happy New Year everyone,
