View Full Version : Recommendations on best experience/empty keg suppliers?

Hi everyone, my name is Kyle and this is my first post on PB. Glad to be here!

I'm the founder/brewer of Charging Hippo Brewing Co.; a nano-start up in development in Shoreline, Wa on track to be the city's first brewery.
Right now we are solidifying lease space and gathering vendor information which brings me to a question on kegs...I've been looking around online and nothing is really inspiring me as to who to go with as a keg supplier.

Is there any company you recommend?

Experience with metal or plastic either way?

Thanks a lot, I appreciate any insight you care to share!

Franke. They are a german based company that can make any size kegs to fit your needs

I have had good luck with Geemacher. I recommend them.

I love my used 50L poly-coated Eurosankes, so we use Schaefer. We've got a bunch of PKA 1/6's that work well enough, they stack nicely and they're light and they haven't exploded yet, but I've had some spear issues with a couple of them. Both companies were very easy to work with.
