    No. Due to the high-risk nature of 18th birthdays, Kegs Off Tap have decided not to service such events. Our apologies if this decision has inconvenienced you.

    How long does a keg last once it's been tapped?

    If the proper temperature and pressure is maintained using CO2 gas, a keg will stay fresh for about:
    45-60 days for non-pasteurised beer, and;
    90-120 days for pasteurised beer.
    However, if you choose to dispense your keg with a cheap hand pump, be sure you finish the keg within 8-12 hours - as we all know oxygen and beer don't get along.
