"MicroStar has been responsive to our needs from day one," said George Allen, AleSmith's General Manager. "In fact, we received our first shipment of MicroStar's half and sixth barrel kegs within days of signing our contract. This is exactly the kind of flexibility we will need as we prepare to build and grow into our new 105,000 square foot brewery."

"We are honored to have another world-class brewer like AleSmith join our customer community," said Michael Hranicka, MicroStar's President and CEO.  "Our cost-effective keg solution is ideally suited to support AleSmith's future growth."

AleSmith and MicroStar also share a commitment to sustainability.  By choosing MicroStar rather than owning all of their own kegs, AleSmith is taking "empty keg miles" off the road reducing their carbon footprint.
