MicroStar

Testimonials

 
"MicroStar has been responsive to our needs from day one. In fact, we received our first shipment of MicroStar's half and sixth barrel kegs within days of signing our contract. This is exactly the kind of flexibility we will need as we prepare to build and grow into our new 105,000 square foot brewery"
George Allen, AleSmith's General Manager
 
"We see the MicroStar team as an extension of our brewery"
Adam Avery, Avery Brewing's Founder and CEO
 
"The Ballast Point / MicroStar partnership represents what’s great about our industry.  It’s all about collaboration. By participating in MicroStar’s pooled-keg model, we all benefit from increased flexibility to help us grow our businesses. In addition, by reducing the miles empty kegs travel, MicroStar helps reduce our industry’s carbon footprint making us all more sustainable."
Jim Buechler, Ballast Point's President & General Manager
 
"We have been happily working with MicroStar since 1999. At that time we decided that the ongoing investment into cooperage to keep up with our growing draft demand would divert too many funds from other areas."
Eric Ottaway, Brooklyn Brewery's CEO
 
"Flying Fish Brewing sells half of our beer on draft and we've been using MicroStar since 1997. The MicroStar program gives us the flexibility to handle seasonal demands so we can focus on making and selling beer—not buying and paying for kegs that we don't always need."
Gene Muller, Flying Fish Brewing's Founder
 
"We first signed on with MicroStar over a decade ago and they've always delivered the kegs we need, when we need them. We're now a much bigger brewer and our needs have changed. We elected to extend our strategic relationship because it's clear MicroStar is investing in the areas that are most important to our future growth: customer service, quality and technology."
Dale Katechis, Oskar Blues Founder and Owner
 
"We are just over a year old and are settling into yet another capacity expansion nearly doubling our total capacity to over 50,000 barrels annually. When you're faced with explosive growth like this, and you expect that growth to continue, you need suppliers you can trust. In MicroStar we've found a group of people who share our values and can deliver the quality kegs we need, when we need them."
Kent Kreutzer, Saint Archer's COO
 
"Shipyard Brewing Company has been using MicroStar Keg Management for its entire keg float since Spring of 2000. This national keg rental pool system has enabled Shipyard Brewing Company to expand its market area beyond New England.
