The pint. So much more than just a measurement. We all know what the word evokes. And although the iconic unit is loved and unanimously used by Brits and Irish alike, lots of people do not know how much it actually is. You may well be loyal to this age-old capacity, but outside of beer drinking and milk guzzling, it is almost meaningless!

How many pints in a keg?

So not only is the pint measurement unique, causing some confusion but then trying to marry that up with a keg measurement, it can wreak havoc. And of course, to add to this, kegs all come in different shapes and sizes. Below we simplify it, covering how many pints you can get from each of our Beerwulf kegs, 2 litres, 5 litres and 8 litres.

Converting imperial pints to litres is a simple calculation that you can apply to all volumes of keg. It might seem confusing but once you have the conversion formulae it’s very straightforward. Something to also bear in mind is, the British imperial pint is also not to be confused with the American pint, it’s about 20% larger!

So, the numbers…

1 UK Imperial pint = 0.56826125 litres or ≈ 568 ml

1 litre = 1 × 1.75975398639 = 1.75975398639 pints 

1 litre = 1.8 pints

How many pints in 2 litres?

If you’re a whizz at maths, this will not pose any problems but, like many of us, if this does not come naturally to you, we sympathise! We all know the importance of “the pint”, what it stands for and what It means for the us beer drinkers. We also know that when buying kegs, you want to know exactly how many pints that will be, of course, no shame here. Whether to work out cost per pint or to calculate how many you need to host a larger group, knowing the volume is paramount!

So, if 1 litre = 1.75975398639 pints that means that 2 litres = 3.519507972

2 litres will give you 3.5 pints or 7 half pints

How many pints in a 5-litre keg?

Based on the above, a 5-litre keg = 9 pints.

Or, 8.80 to be very precise. We have many 5 litre kegs at Beerwulf: Affligem, Desperados, Heineken and more. You might see them referred to as Draught Kegs, ‘mini’ kegs or sometimes even party kegs Due to their larger size, they are great for parties, picnics, and pizza nights. Unlike our other kegs they also don’t require a tap, you can draught straight from the vessel.

How many pints in a SUB Keg?

If you are familiar with The SUB and in turn, SUB Kegs you will know that they hold 2 litres of beer. As mentioned above, 2 litres will give you 3.5 pints or 7 half pints.

The great thing about this is, The SUB will keep your beer at optimum drinking temperature, so you always enjoy your beer at it’s best! And the low maintenance and easy changing of kegs means you can sip many styles and types over an evening, you aren’t limited to just 1 keg!

How many pints in a BLADE Keg?

 If you are familiar with BLADE and BLADE Kegs you will know that they hold 8 litres of beer. So, 8 litres will give you 14 pints or 24 half pints.
