Welcome to TheKegCru.ie's ultimate guide on beer kegs! Whether you're a seasoned beer aficionado, a dedicated homebrewer, or just looking to enhance your next gathering, our comprehensive guide covers everything from compact 5 litre beer kegs Ireland to innovative PerfectDraft kegs and Blade kegs, along with the classic giants like Guinness Keg Dublin and Heineken Keg Dublin. Let's delve into the fizzy world of beer kegs Ireland!

Types of Beer Kegs

Explore our extensive range of keg types, perfect for any setting, whether it's a cosy evening at home or a bustling party.

5 Litre Beer Kegs

Ideal for small gatherings, 5 litre beer kegs Ireland are the epitome of convenience. They hold about 8 pints of beer, making them perfect for personal use or small events. Their portability and often integrated taps make them a popular choice among beer lovers.

Gravity Fed vs Fresh Keg

Gravity Fed Kegs are the more traditional type of mini kegs, which typically use a simple tap at the bottom of the keg for dispensing. These kegs can also be enhanced with our DreamDraft Beer Dispenser Unit, which utilises a CO2 cartridge to push the beer out, ensuring a crisp pour every time. This setup is ideal for those who enjoy the classic hand-pulled beer experience but with a modern twist.

Fresh Kegs, on the other hand, are a proprietary format owned by Heineken. These kegs feature a unique tap system located at the top of the keg, which works seamlessly with our DreamDraft Beer Dispenser Unit. This innovative design not only simplifies the keg setup but also optimises the beer's freshness and carbonation. The top-tap system is particularly beneficial for maintaining the quality and taste of the beer, as it minimizes exposure to air, keeping each pint as fresh as the first.

PerfectDraft Kegs

PerfectDraft kegs Ireland is a sophisticated beer dispensing system developed by Philips and owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev. It's designed to simulate a pub-quality draught beer experience in the comfort of your home. The system includes a sleek, easy-to-use countertop dispenser that chills each keg to the optimal temperature and maintains it, ensuring that each glass of beer is perfectly cool and refreshingly fizzy.

The PerfectDraft system is compatible with over 40 different varieties of beer and cider, spanning from international favourites like Stella Artois and Budweiser to craft delights such as Tiny Rebel and Goose Island. The exclusive nature of these kegs arises from specific brand partnerships, which means that certain beers available in PerfectDraft kegs cannot be found in other keg formats.

Blade Kegs

The Blade kegs Ireland system is a pioneering development by HEINEKEN. Its compact, stylish design fits seamlessly into any home or commercial setting, requiring no more than a standard electrical socket. The Blade system elevates the keg-using experience by using an innovative air compression system that doesn't require CO2 cartridges, ensuring a perfect pour every time.

Currently, the Blade system supports around 15 different beer brands, including Heineken, Birra Moretti, and Gosser. The exclusive selection, similar to PerfectDraft, is due to HEINEKEN's strategic choice of brands, which prioritizes quality and variety tailored to user preferences in different markets.

Big Kegs

For larger events or venues, our 20L, 30L, and 50L kegs are indispensable. These are available in durable stainless steel, eco-friendly Keykegs, or versatile Polykegs, catering to diverse commercial needs.
