Hi There,

Has anyone had experience with the kegs Geemacher is now producing in PA? I believe they recently starting manufacturing 1/6 and 1/2 BBL kegs stateside. The prices are significantly cheaper than Franke, Shaefer, etc. Any insight would be great!

Thanks,

Chris

We have bought a bunch of their 2nd hand kegs. So far so good. I got to tour their facility being so close and it was pretty awesome. Good group of people. Sly Fox Brewing pretty much uses them almost 100%. A bunch of other PA brewers use them as well, but for us its easy nice and close if we want to pick up.

We purchased a couple of skids of the US made 1/2 bbl kegs. They're great! The price is right, and customer service is spot on.

They may still have some they import, which I think they are moving away from. You can just ask if you want the Chinese ones or theirs. I was at their plant as part of a MBAA meeting and they definitely make them on site doing 3 shifts. They also have 2nds every now and then which we bought just for our pub use.
