Where do you find Newcastle in a 1/4 Barrel?

General Beer Discussion by KISSMYBASS

I'm looking for Newcastle in something less than 1/2 Barrel that I can use for my Kegerator. Is there such an animal being imported over here? And if not, what would be a close comparison/substitute that is found (lets say in the MidWest) All the party stores in my area say no they come only in 1/2 barrels(full keg) thats alot of wasted beer sense it probably only stays good for a month or so... Maybe I should take up drinking a pitcher or so a day. Why not? kissmybass (aka. The Newkie Browns)

My local place only has it in 1/2 barrels, so most likely it's not available in 1/4's.

In Reply To #3 I had done some research on kegerators a little while back. In fact, I think you responded to my post. I have read that kegged beer with CO2 can last up to 4 months. You should be able to drink a keg within that time frame. Its only 124 pints!

124 pints is a lot for one night.

In Reply To #5 124 pints is only about a pint a day over the course of 4 months. I feel like i'm a few drinks behind in this conversation.

I can do it... That is drink 124 pints in a 4 month period. Lets see lets break it down. The 1/2 barrels here cost about 130.00 and my local store sells a 6 for 7.99. whats the score? Kissmybass

In Reply To #4 I actually had a kegerator (well, it was my housemate's) 2 years back. We always kept a 1/2 barrel of lager. Usually it took 3-5 months to kick it and it really wasn't that bad, but there was a noticable metallic taste towards the end. More specifically, we noticed it with Yuengling Lager.

Samuel Smith makes a decent Nut Brown ale. I prefer it over newcastle and I bet it's even better on tap (those damn clear bottles they normally use). Unfortunately, my local place doesn't have any sammy smith's in kegs, so I'm not sure if it's available in the US.
