    Keg Shop closed

    Has anyone else noticed this? I tried to go in there at about 8 last night and it was locked up with a sign on the door "Keg Shop closed until further notice"

    Does anyone have any idea what happened here? I loved that place!

    Re: Keg Shop closed

    I don't know what happened. I was in Ames last weekend however, and got to use my favorite parking spot again, right behind the keg-shop. (never been towed in 6+ years) There was a Chevy Cavalier parked there that hasn't moved since I was a freshman at ISU. I graduated in 06.

    Re: Keg Shop closed

    This cannot be!! Boy, I guess the economy must be really bad!

    They used to sell a case of Dubuque Star longnecks for $5.99 back in the 80s...the good old days!



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    I'm guessing it's not a matter of sales, but other problems.

    I went in there over the summer and they barely had anything stocked.

    Re: Keg Shop closed

    I know they had no problem putting about 5 kegs of Little Kings in the back of a 1979 whale station wagon for a 19 year old back in the 1980's. Evil....but a good evil.
    Keg Shop....RIP.

    I heard rumors about a tax problem but i was trying to see if anyone else had heard anything...if this is a repercussion from the economy, it has gotten bad if a keg shop on Welch Avenue cant stay open

    Re: Keg Shop closed

    The Keg Shop is actually going through a new ownership change. The process is just taking a bit longer than expected. From what I hear, it should be open in a couple weeks, if not sooner.

    Re: Keg Shop closed

    I went there with a couple buddies Saturday night and it was closed then too. There was a sign on the door that said closed until further notice. Hope it's back in operation soon.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    Quite possibly the best beer ever.

    Re: Keg Shop closed

    Every time I went in there this year it seemed like their stock was incredible low... they attributed it to high sales the previous few days but it seemed that way no matter what day I went in (Tues-Sun)

    Re: Keg Shop closed

    $8.00 cases of Coors Light back in the late 80's. I'm not sure how many of those I got from that place.

    Man, I bet it sucked for the IBS driver who had to pick up all that beer, especially any kegs.

    Re: Keg Shop closed

    My record for most beer bought underage was at the keg shop. Granted this was 16 years ago.

    25 kegs, two trips with my truck. Veishea, I wish I remembered it.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Ahhh, good ol' Keg Shop Friday afternoon fire sales. Where else could you get a case of Natty Lite for $5?
