We have a huge selection of kegs here at Zipp's
In fact, we sell more kegs than anyone in the STATE!

Call us anytime to make reservations! You can also stop by and browse our current in-stock list. We also offer a special keg-exchange program for those of you with Kegerators/Beer Fridges.

Call us if you have any questions!

ZIPP'S Keg Ordering FAQ

  • Can I email reservations for same-day pickup?

To ensure that your reservation is processed and filled correctly, please call with any same-day requests.

  • When do I need to have my reservation in for the weekend?

If you wish to reserve a keg for either Friday or Saturday, you have two options. You can call the store at any time, and we will take your reservation. If you reserve your keg online, however, your reservation MUST be in by 6 PM Thursday of the week you wish to get your keg. If your reservation is received after the cutoff, unfortunately we will not be able to process it!

  • Do you rent taps/tap heads?

We absolutely do! Pretty any size, shape and style you might need, we can procure on your behalf! We charge a small fee, as well as a deposit on any equipment that you might need.

  • What deposits will I need to put down?

Deposits are uniform in amount for each piece of equipment you rent. Whether it's a 16 gallon keg or a 5, it's all the same (except for Indeed)! The deposits are:

  • $30 for each keg
  • $55 for each tap
  • $25 for each tub
  • Do you rent CO2 systems?

Unfortunately, we do not! We do swap CO2 canisters, but we do not sell or rent them out, nor the equipment to attach them to your keg. We do sell kegerators, if you ever get the itch!         

  • Help! How do you tap a keg?


  • How long will kegged beer keep?

It will keep for a few days if kept cold, but it progressively changes in taste with each day it's exposed to air. Tapping your keg with a party pump is like opening a 2-liter bottle of soda -- it puts air into the container. CO2 then escapes the liquid and dissipates into the air, making the beer flat.


  • If I plan on drinking the keg over a period of a few days, what should I do?

Best thing to do is to untap the keg and keep the beer on ice! Cold beer will hang on to its CO2 longer. Do not pump more air into it -- that'll just oxidize the beer faster.


  • How much does a keg weigh?

A full keg weighs about 170 pounds, so be careful moving it!  We are happy to help you load it into your car, but once you get it home you are on your own.


  • How much beer is in a keg?
