@Cola262:Usually $100 of that is a deposit that you get back if you don’t damage it, so usually the keg is the cheaper option. Check with your vendor.

I’m definitely not an expert with the whole beer thing as my hubby handled this, but I do know he compared prices and kegs were way cheaper in our situation.

We had a bar service at our venue that we went through, so they didn’t charge us for the pump rental… are you sure you’ll be charged for that? All we paid for was the keg itself and delivery.

I went back & forth on this – and actually for us bottles where cheaper & also allowed us to offer more variety.

Also, I think bottles are fine for weddings, its cans that wouldn’t get my vote.

We were going to go with kegs, but I was discussing the option with some groomsmen who had been in a wedding with kegs.  They said it took a long time for the beer to be dispensed, and there were big lineups.  Also they said there was a ton of foam.  Might be the type of keg or how it was being poured, but i remembered being at a convention where the same thing was happening with the keg.  It worked fine for a bit, but then it was just all foam and took forever to get a decent glass full. 

It’s the only keg I ever remember being around, so I’m not sure if that’s common or what?  Maybe some other people have more experience with kegs at large functions, who could advise of their experiences?

@Cola262:Weird!

As a beer snob, I’d say well kept keg beer tastes better than well kept bottled beer. But you can’t really always be sure how it was stored.

And variety could be a good thing. I guess you’ll have to do a price breakdown of the bottles since some people found bottles cheaper in their situation.
