“We’re thrilled to renew our partnership with the team at Kegstar. With their support, flexibility and service we’ve been able to keep growing our draft dreams without all the pain of owning and collecting our own keg fleet. Quality is crucial to ours and Kegstar’s experience, so their unique individual track and trace technology, integrated into our ways of working, as we keep expanding, is so important to us. We’re excited about the next few years delivering great beer to the thirsty masses together.”
We rent tech-enabled one way stainless steel kegs to drinks producers. Each keg has its own unique identity making it easily tracked through your supply chain on our proprietary cloud based software. In some countries we clean kegs ourselves, in some countries we collect kegs ourselves too but in every country, we want to help more great beverages get to more happy drinkers and keep it as simple as fill, scan, deliver, repeat!
HOW WE CAN HELP
Spend your capital on expanding capacity instead of buying, tracking, collecting, maintaining and repairing kegs
Whether it’s new product development, seasonal demand, short term listings or you have a temporary short fall in your existing keg solution, rent as much as you need, when you need it
Just scan our keg to wholesaler or venue and leave the collection, repair and maintenance to us
By creating a pool of smart kegs, every keg gets reused faster. By creating an efficient collections and delivery network we aim for every keg to travel less with each fill
Our stainless steel kegs and spears, produced by our premium partners, help the quality of your drinks through to every mouthful

PROUD TO SUPPORT
Round Corner Brewing,
“We launched a year ago and have been using Kegstar from the start. We also know them from previous experiences in other overseas markets, including Australia. The model is well structured for startups. Low capital commitment, you only pay for what you get and a quality app that allows you to easily scan kegs and casks out to accounts. We can easily create new venues and so we aren’t limited to pre-existing supply routes, as we would be with others in the market. Cleaning of kegs also seems to be to a consistently high standard. Specifically in the UK, we value the service levels and responsiveness of the Kegstar team. Time from order to arrival of kegs and casks for filling is short and so provides us with flexibility in terms of beer supply. Collection responsiveness on empties has come on in leaps and bounds in 2019. Finally, whenever there is an issue, Kegstar respond and front up. The service isn’t cheap but we feel it is value for money and it allows us to focus on the liquid and not worry about the vessels. We are an ambitious and operationally strong brewery, and in this regard, we are happy that Kegstar and we are well aligned in pushing for growth, together.”
“Using Kegstar takes all of the unnecessary hassles away. They arrive clean and ready to fill, and our customers love the ease of use with the app-based scanning system. We also love the coverage Kegstar has – we even use them to ship our beers to Australia which is cool”
“We have been working with Kegstar for a little over 2 years and it has been a great partnership for us. During that time our keg volumes have increased significantly and Kegstar have always been able to deliver the kegs we’ve needed when we’ve needed them. Meaning we can completely rely on them for our domestic kegs without the need to purchase our own. They have also further supported us with technology improvements to ensure we are accurately tracking and monitoring keg usage, helped to ensure our customer’s empties are removed in good time and been helpful and transparent around pricing and contract agreements. Their team are very approachable and quick to provide support when we need help”
Abnormal Beer Company,
“Kegstar has a great group of people dedicated to making sure our product gets out to the market. Using their keg portal allows me to order kegs weeks out so I don’t have to think about it every day. If there is a packaging plan change. I never have to worry. I can give them a call and they do their best to get kegs to me.”
Edmunds Oast Brewery,
“We were initially attracted to Kegstar for their ability to help us expand our fleet without a long-term commitment. What started as a low-risk option has turned into a long-term relationship built on excellent customer service, simple and competitive pricing, and deep enough inventory that we have never, ever had an outage or delay regardless of the size of our order. We recommend Kegstar for any craft brewery that needs a solution to expand their cooperage without a multi-year, binding contract.”
“Unparalleled levels of service and support! Kegstar are the industry leaders in understanding the requirements of breweries and the bars we sell to. The technology Kegstar has created simplifies our process and we’re excited to see what the future holds in keg tracking technology. But mostly, the way Kegstar are supportive in beer events, on the ground and also funding, shows their commitment to better the industry overall.”
“We partnered with Kegstar from the beginning and value their awesome support as we continue to grow our business.”
“We’ve been working with Kegstar for over 4 years now and the team have helped us grow immeasurably. As a small business based in Tasmania trying to get our cider around Australia took a lot of time and effort – following up and retrieving our kegs, not to mention the expense in getting them sent back to Tassie. Using Kegstar means our responsibility is to get the keg to the customer so we can focus on what we do best – showing people how seriously good cider can be!”
“It’s been great working with Kegstar, they fit our business needs perfectly, especially as we grow and distribute further afield. Love the app (if a tad slow at times) but the staff listen and are always looking to develop and improve on what they offer. I really look forward to working with them in 2020 and beyond.”
M.I.A Beer Company,
“Kegs when I need them and none when I don’t! No excess cooperage taking up valuable space, send an email and kegs arrive it’s really that simple. Easy to use app, Scan the kegs out when they leave and never have to worry about them again.”
