Let me take this opportunity to present you with two pieces of news in one! First of all, there is the new Amarcord beer keg made with the collaboration of Polykeg.
We have been using the 100% recyclable PET kegs made by Polykeg for some years now and for the entire range of Amarcord products available in kegs. We at Amarcord beer have had a green policy stamped on our DNA ever since we started. To learn more, try this link.
The choice of recyclable kegs is just one of the many decisions taken by the brewery in favour of sustainability and goes to join the many green choices made time ago: a photovoltaic plant to sustain the efficiency of the entire production system, including the fork-lift trucks used in the company; water treatment; elimination of all products and detergents containing chlorine; 100% recyclable packaging, printed with water ink and glued with corn starch glue.
1) We have however recently introduced a small design update which we think you will highly appreciate! The keg body is grey in colour. But the bottom and top have been customized in Amarcord red. Every time you see a keg of this type, you'll realize it is an Amarcord keg.
And now a small technical note for operators: the bottom of the keg is reinforced. This means the kegs are better protected against knocks and various kinds of ground friction. You often see a keg placed heavily on the ground and dragged along. A reinforced base to protect the internal layer is crucial to prevent damage and breakage. What is more, the bottom of the keg is round and the liquid draught tube reaches down to the bottom. Unlike what could happen with the petaloid shape, no beer residues remain on the bottom of the keg. The beer is pulled to the last drop.
2) The second piece of news concerns the extension of the range. As and from today, the Amarcord Gradisca beer is also available in the 16-litre polykeg besides the 24-litre keg. Naturally, the keg has a red top and bottom. This means a size will be available for our lager beer, the most popular of all, generally restricted to speciality beers. Thanks to the 16-litre keg, the product is always fresh and in top-quality condition, including in those premises where draught beer is not a priority and where keg turnover is not therefore high. With the 16-litre Gradisca keg, it will in any case be possible to offer clients an exceptional and characterizing product.
Try it for yourself! We feel sure you'll be more than satisfied!
