MicroStar

Testimonials

 
"MicroStar has been with us since the beginning and never let us down. By providing just-in-time keg deliveries, MicroStar has been integral to our growth."
Steve Wagner, Stone's Co-Founder and President
 
“We’ve been growing so quickly that we were constantly short on cooperage and always needing to spend more on kegs. With MicroStar, it’s not just the kegs that we’re getting, but the entire support network. The people at MicroStar demonstrated an understanding of our business from the very beginning of our discussions.”
Steve Crandall, Devils Backbone’s Founder and President
 
"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
 
"Today we are one of the largest craft brewers in the country and in the midst of planning our next significant expansion. 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."
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.
