The Next Glass you Order Might Come from a Keg

When you think about a keg, you certainly don’t think about fine wine. Cheap beer that only college freshmen can stomach is usual fare for kegs, and wine is reserved for more civil distribution. While no one will be doing keg stands with their Bordeaux, kegs are actually gaining popularity across the United States as an efficient way to distribute wine. The idea is nothing new in Europe, but American restaurants are finally catching on.

Kegs Are More Eco-Friendly

Distributing wine in kegs leaves a smaller carbon footprint than doing so with glass bottles. A single keg holds the equivalent of 26 wine bottles. That means that 26 bottles worth of glass, corks, labels and foil are saved with every keg. Kegs can also be reused, and eliminate 3,000 bottles over the course of its reusable life. Kegs are also lighter to distribute, which saves gas and emissions from trucks.

If your next bottle of Burgundy comes from a keg, don’t turn up your nose. While the keg is not as elegant as a shiny bottle, it will cut down on pollution and waste. Less pollution means more wine production from vineyards around the world for many generations to come.
