Kegging cider just got easier with the petainerKeg™.
Your cider is all the rage and now customers are asking for it in their favorite drinking establishments. So now it’s time to get serious about putting your cider on tap. We promise, it’s really not that difficult. Petainer kegs are one-way, 100 percent recyclable PET kegs that offer a cost-effective way to break into the cider-on-draft market.
With Petainer kegs, you don’t have to invest in or lease a steel keg fleet or sign up for any pay-per-fill programs. This allows you to be more productive with your resources and not in the “keg retrieval” business.
So, how do Petainer kegs work and more importantly, how can you get an ROI when using them?
First, the Petainer kegs are fully compatible with standard Sankey D tapping equipment, which is what almost every bar and restaurant in the United States uses to tap kegs. The kegs are easily filled with your existing filling equipment with often only a slight modification.
All Petainer kegs arrive 100 percent sterile and pre-purged with food grade N2, thus eliminating the need to purge your kegs.
Second, you save money as a cidermaker by getting a large quantity, either 20-liter or 30-liter (5 or 8 gallons) of product in one vessel. You will not have to purchase 57 bottles, caps and labels for each 20 liter keg that you serve your cider from!
You will also save by not having to purchase a keg washer, which typically range in price from $12,000 up to $100,000.
Third, and this is most important — peace of mind. You don’t have to worry about your cider, or trying to retrieve your kegs, once your product leaves your production facility. You can focus on the customer experience. You can focus on the presentation with some custom beer tap handles. You can focus on what matters. Product in Petainer kegs also stays fresh for up to nine months once filled. Thus, the quality of your cider is guaranteed and taste is never compromised.
As Andy Sietsma of Sietsma Orchards & Cider Mill in Ada, Michigan, says: “We have had more and more requests for our cider on tap beyond our region and the Petainer kegs help us fulfill these requests quickly and easily. We also know that our product will taste exactly as we intend it to in the Petainer kegs. Petainer has really helped us grow our business.”
