PureDraught™ keeps beer fresher up to four times longer than a traditional steel keg and reduces the carbon footprint of shipping beer -- all while offering more versatility and variety for bar and restaurant owners.
Using a custom-molded, double-walled, bottle-in-bottle polymer keg, PureDraught allows air or gas to be fed into the outer bottle, which keeps its shape and pushes the beer out of the inner bottle. This innovation prevents any air or dispense gas from touching the beer, allowing the beer to remain fresh for 30 days after being tapped instead of just a week.
In addition, PureDraught comes in 6L, 12L and 18L sizes rather than the standard 30L or larger steel keg size, allowing for more flexibility and less wasted product by bar and restaurant owners. The kegs can be stored and dispensed from upright or on their side on a shelf, making them more versatile.
“We are honored that our research and technological innovation for PureDraught has been recognized by the prestigious World Beverage Innovation Awards,” said Rodrigo Sozo, Vice President of AB InBev GITEC. “This is a validation of the hard work and passion of our team as they set out to develop a transformational innovation for draught beer, including superior quality, less carbon footprint and more variety of beers on tap. We are also excited about how the technology platform creates new consumer experiences for all types of occasions of draught beer consumption.”
There are no additional costs for a bar to use the PureDraught system or the beer in the one-way kegs, and in most markets, the system’s custom keg coupler is provided and connected to a bar’s existing beer and gas lines by AB InBev free of charge.
Currently, PureDraught is in use with AB InBev brands in more than eight countries, including the U.S., Mexico, Brazil, China, Italy, Japan and South Korea as well as additional areas of Europe and Africa, providing the best pour of brands like Stella Artois.
