Introduced by Rehrig Pacific in 2009, the plastic PubKeg is a brewer-branded, sixth barrel alternative to metal kegs.
PubKegs give brewers a way to enter new markets or introduce seasonal flavours without using existing cooperage or scarce metal kegs during peak periods.
Rehrig is now offering PubKeg Black, a reusable packaging option for higher volume PubKeg customers. The exchange programme will provide a pooled solution for one-way PubKegs.
Rehrig is collaborating with their subsidiary, Rehrig Penn Logistics to employ their existing reclamation and refurbishment service capabilities to launch the exchange programme.
