According to an article in the Irish Times, more than 400,000 beer or cider #kegs, costing approximately €40 million, have been stolen or gone missing from licensed premises in the Republic of #Ireland since 2007. The figure was compiled by the Irish Brewers Association (IBA) using data from the five big Irish drinks distributors, C&C Group, Diageo, Heineken Ireland, Molson Coors Ireland and Richmond Marketing Limited.

At a time of high global demand for metal, #stealing kegs for scrap has become a lucrative trade. According to the IBA’s Thomas Burke, the cost of replacing a keg is approximately €100. “Metal theft has emerged as a worrying issue since 2007, costing the Irish economy millions of euro every year. For the #brewing sector, keg theft continues to be a serious problem and is hindering our ability to meet customer requirements by creating unsustainable losses,” Mr Burke said. “For every keg stolen the cost of providing beer and cider to publicans in this country increases and damages the profitability of breweries. We believe that it is in our shared interest to protect our industry from keg theft”. To find out more, read the full article on the Irish Times website (link below).

GPS plastic kegs, being made from #HDPE means there is no scrap value, whilst still being 100% recyclable. Being approximately 25% lighter than steel will also mean you will save transport costs, whilst increasing payload. Tested to industry standards set by steel, the following video shows how robust our kegs and casks really are.

Global Polymer Solutions have seen a steady increase in #cask sales to #Ireland over the last 2 years, further encouraged by the acquisition of The Franciscan Wells Brewery in Cork by Coors. Cask #ales are starting to become a regular drink found in many great pubs in Dublin, Cork, Galway, and throughout the country. This is a real testament to the many brewers and brewery's to be found in every county in Ireland. Well may it continue.

GPS have recently shipped our first container load of 50 Litre kegs to the USA. Triple B Bottlers and Brewers, based in Chicago, are our first customers for the kegs across the pond. Jim Krejcie of Triple B has been working closely with GPS for the past 18 months and said he is very excited at the response he has received from brewers who have tested the keg.

DC Brau, one of Washington's largest brewers, have been using the GPS #plastic #keg since mid-March, treating it like a normal stainless steel keg. "I would recommend GPS kegs as a good alternative to traditional kegs" said Jeff Hancock, co-founder and head brewer at DC Brau. Find out more about GPS kegs on our website:
