After working in the craft beer and hospitality industry for over 40 years between us (David and Oner). We saw a gap in the market for a growler that was unbreakable, stayed cold all day, could be filled without loss of carbonation or oxygen contact (without expensive equipment) and came in a variety of sizes.
That idea became iKegger mini keg systems and we've sold them to over 50,000 people in the last few years with rave reviews.
We are passionate about reducing peoples carbon footprint and believe in supporting small business by encouraging people to buy local.
This puts more money directly in your pocket and less waste and pollution in our land and air. We donate a substantial amount to Australian charities that clean up rubbish in the environment and deal with the effects it causes on the human body. (We've raised over $50k for the Cancer Council and the Clean Up Australia campaign so far).

Do you want us to send 50,000 customers looking for places to fill their growlers and mini kegs to your venue?
We have a map on our website that shows people who've purchased a growler system from us where to get them filled. It gets viewed thousands of times per month.
Short answer is no, you don't. Our customers turn up with the keg sanitised and have their own CO2 source to flush it prior to filling. All you need is a bit of hose to fit over your tap so you can fill from the bottom of the keg to avoid splashing, foaming and oxygen contact. That being said the connection are standard ball lock posts (like 19l corny kegs) and they can be counter-pressure filled direct from bright tank, 50L keg or compatible tap. We can provide equipment to do this. See this video for an idea of how that works.
No, the customers know to arrive with them cleaned and sanitised. In most cases they will also be able to flush them with CO2 before you fill if you don't have a CO2 source at the taps.
Number one hint is chill the keg in your fridge 1st. With the lid off if it is an insulated keg. The cold steel will prevent foaming and you losing stock or the customer getting a half filled keg.
Yes, all our products are marked with a volume. This is the volume of the entire vessel to the neck.
Yes, you can with a minimum order volume. This is currently 48 units but we are intending to buy equipment so we can do smaller batches in the future.
