    Located on a green field site in Ellon, north of Aberdeen, BrewDog HQ is a state of the art eco-brewery. With one of
    the most technologically advanced production facilities in the world, BrewDog strive constantly to challenge preconceptions about what beer is and how it can taste. Built by an army of 80,000 Equity Punk shareholders, they owe much of their success to the support of the people who have fallen in love with the company as much as the beer. BrewDog repay them by brewing in a way that puts the passion and craftsmanship back into their beer glasses at every turn. Now with a brewery in Columbus Ohio, and more breweries, bars and brewpubs due to open in the coming months and years, BrewDog show no signs of slowing down.

    Clever Kegs, great beer, happy drinkers.

    A keg rental business, innovative tech company, and above all a friend to the industry, Kegstar is the new kid on the block whose aim is simple: make brewing good beer easy.

    As the craft beer and cider scene continues to grow, Kegstar’s team of industry experts are simplifying the entire keg value chain with their revolutionary technology. Each individual stainless steel Keg and Cask that Kegstar rents out, is etched with it’s own 2D matrix code and RFID tag. Using app enabled technology, each keg is scanned using a smart device, allowing the container to be tracked through the supply chain to the venue, creating valuable data insights along the way.

    Absolutley everything is supported by Kegstar’s iOS and android technology, meaning all the customer has to do is fill, deliver, scan, repeat. When the time comes for empty kegs to be collected, venue staff can simply download the free Kegstar app and scan the keg to request a collection. Alternatively, venues can call, email, tweet or even Instagram Kegstar to let them know they have empties to be picked up; no platform is out of reach for this inventive keg company.
