The Craft Brewers Conference and BrewExpo America is the No. 1 event of the craft beer year, and we want you to be ready to see all of the cool new stuff on the trade show floor. We asked exhibitors to tell us what they will be showing off, and we turned those submissions into these handy CBC Previews. See you in D.C.
Petainer is a global market leader in innovative PET packaging, and this leader plans on challenging brewers to “break from conformity” at the upcoming Craft Brewers Conference and BrewExpo America in Washington, D.C. Petainer will be at booth number 4318. The company’s highly successful one-way 20- and 30-liter petainerKeg, which is increasingly being used by a growing number of craft breweries in the United States and Canada, will be highlighted as a low-cost alternative to traditional steel kegs.
- The petainerKeg offers numerous benefits for breweries including:
- Reducing the cost of entering new markets
- Eliminating the expense and/or need for a keg washer
- Allowing for on-time delivery of brand new, sterile kegs in any quantity
- No short-term or long-term contracts
In the United States, Petainer Kegs arrive pre-purged with nitrogen, are equipped with O2 scavengers to prevent oxygen ingress, use a standard Sankey D coupler, have one-year filled shelf life and can be tapped and re-tapped as many times as necessary.
At the 2017 CBC, Petainer will also showcase its petainerKeg Linestar, which is designed to enhance the benefits of the classic, one-way PET keg. The Linestar features a solid and robust external casing, designed to run on most steel keg filling lines, and is stackable up to three high for shipping and storage purposes. The Linestar offers customers all the advantages of the classic petainerKeg with a host of new benefits such as increased resilience throughout the supply chain, a lightweight, ergonomic design for handling and ample space on the keg for branding opportunities.
“Petainer will be showcasing a range of solutions at CBC which are designed to help North American craft brewers grow and develop their business,” said Marc Kibbey, executive vice-president, North America, Petainer. “Among them is petainerKeg Linestar, which offers excellent logistical performance, helping extend reach across both the domestic market and overseas.”
Petainer Manufacturing USA is also launching a “Tap This” competition leading up to and at CBC offering round trip tickets, accommodations and tickets to the London Craft Beer Festival September 4-6, 2017, for two people. Entry details can be found on the petainerKeg Facebook page.
