KegCraft Now on Tap with Reusable Packaging Association


Reusable Packaging Association welcomes keg management and rental service provider to membership.

Membership movement continues to be downright effervescent for the Reusable Packaging Association (RPA), recently announcing a new member from the keg management sector.

Boasting an inven­tory of over 100,000 kegs, KegCraft is one of the largest inde­pen­dent keg own­ers in the US. It offers reli­able keg man­age­ment ser­vices, keg rentals, and keg leas­ing programs to a customer base currently including 100 brewers and over 240 distributors, according to the company website. Checking out the website is a worthwhile excercise to find out how a 3rd generation family enterprise moved from the party rental business to the keg rental business. (Maybe it isn’t that far of a stretch when you think about it.)

“We are a fairly unique com­pany so we were pleased to hear about the RPA and the oppor­tu­nity to net­work with other sup­pli­ers of reusables,” says Ben Ship­per, Pres­i­dent and CEO of KegCraft. “We hope to learn about dif­fer­ent strate­gies that might apply to our grow­ing business.”

“KegCraft is a wel­come addi­tion to the asso­ci­a­tion,” said Jerry Wel­come, RPA Pres­i­dent. “Craft brew­ing is a growth indus­try and com­pa­nies like KegCraft are open­ing up this mar­ket to reusable solu­tions. This is another great exam­ple of the con­tin­ued diver­sity of our mem­ber­ship and the mar­kets they serve; it is one of the strengths of the RPA.”
