Dallas is the 4th largest metropolitan area in the United States. It’s a city that most people either love or hate. Stereotypically, it is known for big hair and a focus on materialism. While this might describe some segments accurately, it certainly isn’t fair for the majority. After all, the folks in Big D need plenty of beer too.
Best Places To Fill A Keg In Dallas
Parkit Market – this is one of the better places to fill a keg in the SMU area. They have a wide variety of kegs in stock. My only complaint is that the prices are on the high side. A half barrel of Shiner is currently $145. For reference, a half barrel of Shiner from Specs is $125. If money is more important than convenience, you might look elsewhere. Otherwise, this little convenience store has a solid four store rating on Yelp. In addition to a variety of kegs, they also offer a deli in case you get the munchies while collecting your beer.

Kegs & Barrels – technically they are located in Plano. Let’s consider this an article about where to find a keg in the metroplex now. they advertise the fact that they keep 150 kegs in stock at all time. At the very least, you will leave this place with some kind of beer. If you have time to plan your party, they do their keg ordering on Wednesdays at noon, so if you can all before then, you will be guaranteed your prefer keg of beer. The keg deposit is a little on the high side at $100.
Kegs & Barrels offers a couple neat services for the kegerator crowd. They offer 5 pound CO2 exchanges for $17. Your best bet for the cheapest CO2 is usually a welding shop. In comparison to Parkit Market, K & B charges $130 for a half barrel of Shiner Bock. You can download a spreadsheet from their site with over 600 keg beers that are available upon request. The only neat thing they do is rent jockey boxes. I like to think of a jockey box as being like a mobile kegerator. It’s basically a Coleman cooler with some immersion chillers in it to quickly cool the beer out of the keg.

Lone Star Beverages – they are located in Carrollton. The Yelp ratings are impressive with a 4.5 star average with 39 reviews. The website is pretty dreadful. If you have any design experience, you should pitch them a quote to redo their website. On the cool side, they have free craft beer tastings between 5-8 on Fridays.
