Consumer Keg Information

If you wish to purchase a keg, here are the steps involved:

  • You will need to go to a retailer that has an off-premises keg permit privilege (for example, a grocery store).
  • You will need to present a valid ID to show that you're age 21 years or older.
  • Then you will need to provide the required information to the retailer so that the retailer may complete the keg registration declaration and receipt.
  • The retailer will have you read and sign the declaration. The retailer is responsible for showing you how to use the keg booklet.

Have a question? Please contact your regional ABC office or email enforcement@abc.virginia.gov.
