GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. — Brew Hub, a company that provides brewing, packaging, distribution and selling services for craft brewers, has chosen MicroStar Logistics to meet their expanding keg needs. The Brew Hub and MicroStar business models are well-aligned as both companies share a passion for craft beer and deliver efficiencies and flexibility that enable growth and reduce carbon footprints for craft brewers.
“Since we first broke ground on our Lakeland, Florida brewery, we knew we would need a logistics partner we could trust,” says Brew Hub CEO Tim Schoen. “MicroStar has the scale and flexibility to meet our keg demands, and they have a proven track record. For nearly 20 years they have helped the craft beer industry grow and have built the nation’s largest independent inventory of kegs. That kind of experience and network density is what Brew Hub needs as we expand our business.”
“Brew Hub is an excellent addition to the craft brewer community, and we are excited by the opportunity to leverage our fleet of nearly two million kegs to meet their unique needs,” says MicroStar’s President and CEO, Michael Hranicka. “We have enjoyed working with Brew Hub and are impressed with how they do business. We share their commitment to quality, to delivering value, and to minimizing the craft beer industry’s carbon footprint.”
Accurate forecasting is a challenge for any craft brewer, and it becomes more difficult as they work to meet the demands of multiple customers. By choosing MicroStar as the preferred keg solution for their growing list of customers, Brew Hub will have the benefit of receiving the quality kegs they need, when they need them. This partnership also will help Brew Hub consolidate incoming and outgoing kegs from multiple brewer partners, which will improve efficiencies and flexibility.
