Ardagh taps into new serving system for its kegs
Ardagh launches a new tapping system for its 3.1 and 5 litre metal party kegs, together with partner and Oberhofer owned KMT, to bring an exciting pub experience to any home-based celebration or occasion. Newly designed features that provide a smooth ‘pull and tap’ to their favourite beer or beverage will, the company states, delight consumers and provide the beer and beverage industry with an opportunity to lift sales.
This easier and more professional way of serving a freshly tapped beer or beverage gives the same tapping sensation as a draught beer as you pull and then tilt the handle for a continuous beer stream. The beer stream can be adjusted steplessly, and, for easy storage the tap can be easily pushed back into the keg. The party kegs also come with a new venting mechanism. This airtight, resealable plug supports extended shelf-life of the beer for up to several days after opening. Infographics on the tap also provide easy to follow instructions.
“As our new party keg tapping system also enjoys all the intrinsic performance and environmental benefits of metal packaging, and can be further enhanced with our extensive range of in-house decoration, we believe that we can now offer a winning package to brands who want to increase their market share,” says Klaus Jakobi, Senior Sales Manager at Ardagh’s metal division.
“Our recently conducted consumer research shows that this is exactly what they require from a modern keg,” he adds.
Ardagh’s range of kegs also includes the Top Keg Plus, available in 3.1 and 5 litre, with an integrated CO2 pressure control system to keep your chilled beer fresh for up to 30 days. Both types of kegs can be filled on existing filling lines.
Metal kegs are impermeable and provide a total barrier against light, gas and oxygen, are unbreakable and impact-resistant to keep its content safe.
