Leading beer brands choose new PET kegs

August 17/2011

(PlastEurope) -- Leading international beer brands Heineken and Amstel are now available in four litre PET kegs in The Netherlands. The new Tapje small draft-beer system was developed together with APPE, formerly Artenius PET Packaging, a member of Spanish PET giant La Seda de Barcelona, which supplies the kegs. The breweries plan to launch the new system in other countries as well.

The PET container is said to be an innovative cost-effective alternative to traditional beer crates. It features APPEs monoBLOX barrier technology with oxygen scavengers, which guarantee a robust container with what the Wrexham-based company calls superior barrier performance that protects the integrity of the beer by keeping out oxygen whilst keeping in the carbonation. Once open, the beer reportedly remains fresh for 30 days.
