Sixtels, Quarter Barrels, More – For the Newbies Like Me

Found a solid link ( describing the sizes and exactly how much fluid we’re talking about when saying "sixtel". Truthfully, it’s just a 6th of a standard keg (30 gallon or so), so you’re talking around 5 gallons.

I had to look into this because I was hearing that the Canadian Breakfast Stout keg was only a sixtel and it would go quickly.

What I didn’t realize is that when there’s only 10 people drinking 5 gallons, there’s no real urgency to get 2nd and 3rd pours quickly. Oh… Well.

Future note: sixtel = ~40-45 pints.
