Kegs in Stardew Valley are a type of Artisan Equipment used to make a whole variety of Artisan Goods. You’ll need the keg to complete many in-game quests and progress the story. Read on to find out in detail how to get a keg in Stardew Valley!

Keg Recipe

The keg recipe is unlocked at Farming level 8 and requires the following ingredients:

The keg can also be acquired without crafting, as a reward for completing the Artisan Bundle. The Artisan Bundle is located in the Pantry, and requires six of the following items:

  • Truffle Oil
  • Cloth
  • Goat Cheese
  • Cheese
  • Honey
  • Jelly
  • Apple
  • Apricot
  • Orange
  • Peach
