Kegging Beer

(book excerpts)

Kegs, another option in packaging beer, are used in bars and catering establishments where beer is served "on draught." Kegging involves filling carbonated pasteurized beer into sterile aluminum or stainless steel kegs of various sizes. Aluminum kegs are generally more popular than stainless steel kegs because they are lighter and more resistant to minor damage. Kegging fits into the cost structure for craft brewers with limited startup capital for bottling lines and low product output.
