USA Takes 1st Batch of 50L Plastic Kegs

Plastic Keg BottleGPS have recently shipped our first container load of 50 Litre kegs to the USA. Triple B Bottlers and Brewers, based in Chicago, are our first customers for the kegs across the pond. Jim Krejcie of Triple B has been working closely with GPS for the past 18 months and said he is very excited at the response he has received from brewers who have tested the keg.

DC Brau, one of Washington's largest brewers, have been using the GPS plastic keg since mid-March, treating it like a normal stainless steel keg. "I would recommend GPS kegs as a good alternative to traditional kegs" said Jeff Hancock, co-founder and head brewer at DC Brau.

As well as supplying brewers here in the UK, we are also taking enquiries from brewers in Europe and Australia. “This has been a long road getting the keg ready for the market, but we needed to make sure it was right before we launched it” said Greg Whitehorne, Sales Director at GPS.

“The keg includes a brand new safety spear and we believe our products will revolutionise the market. The Keg is the second phase of our development. We have been selling Casks into the market since 2010 and have, to date, sold over 80000 casks in the UK as well as shipping small amounts overseas. Our casks have become very popular with brewers of all sizes and our records show they are filled over 16000 a month. The feedback we are getting from brewers using the casks is very positive and we see our sales growing month on month.”
