Not sure if you would get caught (not sure what the River Rangers can or will do at the sight of kegs) but it is something worth consideration.
I watched a group pull into the boat ramp at Moab with a keg and the Rangers were waiting for them. I don't know if they were intiially being contacted for not having PFD's through Arches N.P but they were fined for the keg and it was confiscated.

We took a soda keg on Deso, it fit inside of one of our coolers. The group drank that for two days, then switched to cans. I did not know about kegs being illegal. Maybe if the keg had been out of hte cooler we would have learned the hard way.

I've known otherwise (occasionally) reviled WW rangers to quietly take a TL aside, and tell him to make sure that the keg in the truck isn't observable when the equipment check takes place.

I also saw one confiscated there. That group had the bad luck to be rigging when a Grand County deputy cruised in unexpectedly.
