Hi

I have a Hambleton Bard BeerSphere keg for sale
-5 gallon capacity
-wide neck
-S30 valve system
-float

Nothing wrong with it - I upgraded to cornelius kegs a while back so it's been sitting in my cellar unused for a year

There's a picture of one here (one of the only sites i could find still selling them?)

£15 is all I ask.. what a bargain! :)
Pick up only from the Bristol area..

Cheers
Tim

I can't believe nobody has had this!

I had a Beersphere a long time ago, very well made.

I considered it but having just bought some cories it seemed a little redundant...

Not very well made in my opinion. I had one of these rupture because the safety valve failed. The sphere shape is obviously a perfect pressure vessel, but for the fact that the beer sphere has two recesses in the sphere for lifting, and they're redundant too because the later models have handles. These recesses create a weakness in the structure, which is where mine ruptured.

Hambleton Bard didn't even bother to respond when I contacted them about it.
