GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. — As they accelerate their growth trajectory Saint Archer Brewing Company has elected to utilize MicroStar’s reverse logistics expertise to fuel their expansion plans. Saint Archer chose MicroStar to increase their operational flexibility while maintaining their high quality standards.
“We are just over a year old and are settling into yet another capacity expansion nearly doubling our total capacity to over 50,000 barrels annually,” said Kent Kreutzer, Saint Archer’s COO. “When you’re faced with explosive growth like this, and you expect that growth to continue, you need suppliers you can trust. In MicroStar we’ve found a group of people who share our values and can deliver the quality kegs we need, when we need them.”
“Saint Archer has done a tremendous job building their brand and brewing fantastic beers,” said Michael Hranicka, MicroStar’s President and CEO. “Our industry leading pooled-keg model and our nimble customer-focused team are ideally positioned to enable their continued growth. We’re honored to have another GABF gold-medal winner join our expanding customer community.”
By switching to MicroStar rather than owning their own kegs, Saint Archer has reduced their draught-related costs while eliminating many of the worries and hassles that come with keg ownership. Saint Archer and MicroStar also share a commitment to sustainability. By choosing MicroStar rather than owning their own kegs, Saint Archer is taking empty keg miles off the road reducing their carbon footprint.
