MicroStar is the PREMIER just-in-time keg solution that uses a pooled-keg model to flex with your demand.

We work with brewers to decide which of our two floats of high-quality kegs best meets their specific needs based on where they are in the country and where they want to send their beer. From coast to coast, we have an option that will fit your brewery!


PAY-PER-FILL 101

Whether it’s our KegCraft or our MicroStar program, we take the worry out of keg management. Once full kegs are shipped to your wholesaler, your administrative hassles, risks of loss and slow turns associated with keg management are eliminated.

The Benefits

FLEXIBILITY

Growing brewers have a lot of volatility in their forecasts. Our pooled-asset model provides you with flexibility so you can always get the kegs you need, when you need them. We enable growth.

CAPITAL

We help brewers free up capital by only having you pay for the kegs that you need. This will allow you to invest in brewing great beer and growing.

WORRY FREE

Managing kegs is a headache. Loss rates, turn rates, repair and maintenance, keg tracking… We take the worry out of keg ownership.

SUSTAINABILITY

Because our pooled-asset model reduces the miles empty kegs have to travel, we’ve been helping reduce the industry’s carbon footprint dramatically for almost 20 years.

QUALITY

Our proactive repair and maintenance programs keep our kegs in tip top shape. However, if you happen to find a keg that does not perform the way you expect, you simply set it aside and we’ll pick it up and fully repair it at no cost to you.
