Brooklyn Brewery and MicroStar Logistics announced an extension of their partnership. According to Brooklyn, MicroStar’s keg management program delivers the efficiency and flexibility a leading brewer needs in today’s dynamic marketplace.
“Today we are one of the largest craft brewers in the country and in the midst of planning our next significant expansion,” says Brooklyn’s CEO Eric Ottaway. “It’s a great comfort to have a reliable partner like MicroStar who continues to make the right investments in quality, customer service and innovation to meet our needs well into the future.”
“Steve Hindy at Brooklyn Brewery literally wrote the book on the Craft Beer Revolution, and we’re honored to carry their world-class beer in our kegs every day,” says MicroStar’s President and CEO Michael Hranicka. “We look forward to delivering the supply chain efficiency and flexibility Brooklyn needs as Ottaway and the team execute their ambitious expansion plans and write the next chapter of the Brooklyn Brewery story.”
In addition, by choosing MicroStar instead of owning their own kegs, Brooklyn has reduced its carbon footprint by approximately 48,000 kg carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) in the past 12 months alone, based on an analysis by Dr. John Heckman of thinkstep (formerly PE International), a leading sustainability consulting firm. That is equivalent to saving the amount of CO2e emitted by burning over 50,000 pounds of coal.
