Beer and Wine

Of six barrels of capacity 15, 16, 18, 19, 20 and 31 litres respectively, five are filled with wine and only one with beer. A customer bought two barrels of wine, and then a second customer also bought wine, but of a quantity twice as much as the first.

Which is the beer barrel?

Agree:
1. 15+18=33
2. 16+19+31=66
3. 20= Beer
