I believe there are more than a few German brewers who export the 5l kegs to the US. Paulaner and Warsteiner are the easiest to find but locally I've also seen a schwarzbier and I seem to think a pilsner or two. I bet you could host a party over the summer and clear out a few of them with the help of friends/neighbors.

The schawrzbier I've seen is Kostriker (or something like that).  It's actually quite good.

That would be the one.

I seem to think the other pilsner that shows up in our area is Bitburger but I might be wrong.

I've seen Bitburger and DAB.  Also, I think a Maibock or a keller bier.  Regardless, it's a decent selection of pretty good German beers.

Bell's also issues a few beers in these, too.  I've got a mini of Oberon at home.

Ha, I know what he meant, I just couldn't get past why you'd need to choke down Warsteiner. It's one of the best German pilsners on the planet.
I knew what you meant too, I just don't like it. ;)
