Kegs or Cans

Updated: Jun 24, 2023

When it comes to serving beer at your wedding, one of the decisions you'll need to make is whether to go with kegs or bottles. Each option has its own set of advantages and disadvantages, so the "better" choice really depends on your individual preferences and needs.


Ultimately, the choice between kegs and bottles comes down to what you think will work best for your wedding. Consider factors like the size of your guest list, your budget, and your personal preferences when making your decision. And of course, don't forget to enjoy a cold one on your special day!


KEGS

eh.

  • Weighing in at roughly 55lbs (for a 5gal keg) they are heavy and hard to transport.

  • Kegs need proper storage and space to ensure they are ice cold or they will foam and not pour properly.

  • Require special equipment such as a draft line with carbon dioxide or hand pump.

oh YEAH!

  • Kegs can serve the masses:

    • One 5gal Keg ≈ fifty 12oz pours

  • Kegs are more cost effective per pour

  • The freshness and flavor of an ice cold beer out of the keg is delightful

  • Kegs create less trash, cups can be reused to keep the waste to a minimum.

CANS & Bottles


eh.

  • More wasteful: there is a good chance you will find plenty of half full beers laying around after the party is over.

  • Not instagram worthy, branded bright colored labels are not eye appealing for pictures.

  • Not always able to be recycled.

oh YEAH!

  • More flexibility in variety

  • More manageable to transport

  • Easier to properly store and ice down.

  • Cans & Bottles can be restored for later use.

Ultimately, the choice between kegs and bottles comes down to what you think will work best for your wedding. Consider factors like the size of your guest list, your budget, and your personal preferences when making your decision. And of course, don't forget to enjoy a cold one on your special day!
