How Much Beer Is In A Keg?
If you are planning a party or an event that involves serving beer, you might be wondering how much beer is in a keg and how many kegs you need to order. The answer depends on the size of the keg and the type of beer you want to serve. In this article, we will explain the different keg sizes and how many beers they can hold.
In U.S.A, the most common keg size in the US is the half barrel keg, also known as the full size keg or the standard keg.
It can hold 15.5 US gallons or 58.66 liters of beer. That's equivalent to 165.3 standard-size (12 oz) cans or 124 pints (16 oz) of beer . This keg size is popular for parties, weddings, and other large events.
Another common keg size in the US is the quarter barrel keg, also known as the pony keg or the stubby quarter. It can hold 7.75 US gallons or 29.3 liters of beer. That's equivalent to 82 standard-size (12 oz) cans or 62 pints (16 oz) of beer. This keg size is suitable for smaller events or for serving multiple types of beer.
A less common keg size in the US is the sixth barrel keg, also known as the sixtel or the torpedo. It can hold 5.16 US gallons or 19.8 liters of beer. That's equivalent to 55 standard-size (12 oz) cans or 41 pints (16 oz) of beer. This keg size is ideal for home brewers, craft beer enthusiasts, or for serving specialty beers.
In addition to these commercial keg sizes, there are also homebrew or corny kegs that are used by home brewers and soda makers.
These kegs can hold 5 US gallons or 18.9 liters of beer. That's equivalent to 53 standard-size (12 oz) cans or 40 pints (16 oz) of beer. These kegs are easy to use and transport, and come in two styles: ball lock and pin lock.
In Europe, the standard keg size is 11 imperial gallons or 50 liters of beer.
That's equivalent to 88 imperial pints (20 oz) of beer. This keg size is common in UK and European breweries and pubs. There are also smaller keg sizes available, such as the half barrel (6.6 imperial gallons or 30 liters) and the pin (9 imperial gallons or 40.9 liters).
As you can see, there are many different keg sizes and capacities to choose from depending on your needs and preferences. To calculate how many beers are in a keg, you can use this formula:
(number of gallons in a keg x 128) / number of ounces in a beer = number of beers in a keg
For example, if you have a half barrel keg with 12 oz beers, you can use this formula:
(15.5 x 128) / 12 = 165.3
Therefore, a half barrel keg with 12 oz beers can hold 165.3 beers.
