Today’s episode is sponsored by Ecokeg – the strongest, most versatile and eco –friendly one way keg on the market today.

Ecokegs can be racked just like a cask or counter pressure filled like any traditional steel kegs.

Made in the UK using 70% recycled materials and fully recyclable to industrial recyclers, they can be 100% recycled by Ecokeg themselves into new kegs, they also offer free collection for empty Ecokegs.

Used extensively across the brewing industry by cask brewers looking to access the keg market without needing any expensive equipment, as well as macro/micro brewers distributing across the UK and throughout the rest of the world, particularly because they are available in not only Sankey valves but Grundy, A and D type also.
