    Default Saint Louis keg pricing

    I have been trying to get keg prices in St. Louis with out having to call around to every store. I have only found one store that had a list they sent to me. It was for Vincent's 12th street market downtown. They seemed reasonable at least compared to Dirt Cheap. I have been looking at Natural Light just because it is my everyday beer but I would like a list of offerings and prices. Dirt Cheap was $97 and I believe Vincent's was $83. Does anyone have feedback on where to buy kegs for the best price?

    It depends on what you're buying. In general, AB products are over priced across the entire area, compared to what it costs around the rest of the country, but that's because we're in AB town. As far as the best place to buy kegs, there really isn't one catch-all around here that I've found. Some places have better prices on XXX beer vs other places having better prices on YYY beer. Even Dirt Cheap varies in prices on the same beer depending on which Dirt Cheap you call. I've paid $15 less for a keg of Boulevard at one Dirt Cheap vs another one. I've never priced Natty, so I can't help you out there. Your best bet is really to call a few places and get the best price. Then, if you have a favorite liquor store, but their price isn't the lowest, you can always go to them and say "look, I can get this over there for cheaper, but I'd rather get it here if you can match the price" They might price match or at least knock a few bucks off to get your business. The liquor store by my house knocked $15 off their price of Boulevard, so I started buying it there.

    Default Boulevard

    Where are you getting Boulevard for $100? I would much rather get Boulevard than Natural Light especially if $3 is the only difference.

    I don't get it for $100.

    Cheapest I got it was for $110 at Dirt Cheap in Oakville. Dirt Cheap in Affton charged $125. Bob's Liquor in Affton charges me $120 for Boulevard. You can get kegs of Schlafly AT the Tap Room for $100, but they also want $100 deposit on the keg. The deposit amount never bothered me. I just put it on a credit card, and they refund the credit card when I return it.

    Default cheapest keg prices

    I had to do some searching to find the cheapest but dierbergs is cheaper than dirt cheap by almost $20.00. plus you only have to rent what you need not the whole package. This was for bud light though. The prices should still be good I just put my order in last week.
