MicroStar BA EDP New Partner

The BA has an agreement with MicroStar for this event and so MicroStar kegs are permitted. MicroStar kegs are even an option for breweries that do not have an agreement with MicroStar.

MicroStar will coordinate directly with the interested breweries to meet their keg needs

  • Current customers can pull from their existing inventory of MicroStar kegs. MicroStar will notify you of the steps for reporting your shipment out.
  • For all interested non-customers, the BA will provide your address to MicroStar and 2 sixtels will be delivered to you, for your shipment to the Brewers Association warehouse.
