The AiN new kegs are made in China. They worked with the manufacturer to get them to a high quality point , and I must say the kegs look fantastic in the store. The top and bottom rubber parts look superb. The welds are as good as in the Old US made ones. The SS meets 304 specs from a test sheet they had a local lab do (saw the results somewhere).
If I decide to buy some more kegs, I will go new. Must. Resist. Urge. To Buy.
