Is a keg cheaper than cans? Whether a keg is cheaper than cans depends on what brand of beer you purchase. The keg itself may be less expensive than buying individual cans–but you have to factor in the cost for cups.
Buying a keg is simple, as long as you have the proper identification and money to pay deposits and beer costs. Planning for a party will require ordering the beer in advance, picking up the keg, and returning it in a timely manner after the party.

The supermarket favourite has 8 beer kegs with 8 pints included- perfect for Christmas get togethers. Tesco are also in on the action- with the cheapest keg we could find at just £13. Again, like other supermarkets they have some ales stocked including Old Speckled Hen, Adnams Ghost Ship and Sharp's Doom Bar.
