5 Year Goal
Remove the need to make & landfill 10 Million Bottles/Cans
5 Year Goal – Remove the need to make & landfill 10 million bottles & cans
Is to help make beer drinking as enjoyable & sustainable as possible because our taste buds matter, our wallets and the brewers’ wallets matter and… most importantly, we want our kids to have a bright future which requires a happy planet however, drinking from bottles and cans puts beer quality at risk (light/heat damage), adds significant costs to production and results in a mountain of waste – avg of 530 bottles/cans pp p.a.
KegSwappa is a vacation inspiration, the brainchild of two Northern Beaches Dads (Ashley & Johnny) who met on the road while touring around Australia. “The Brew Tour”, as their wives affectionately called it (they think!), included several brewery stops because they wanted to support local businesses and because it was market research for Ashley who is the CEO of 7th Day Brewery. On one of their late-night sampling/solve the world rambling sessions they talked about how much waste there is with the current beer distribution model for take away beers. In the morning the waste problem was still in front of mind – the joys of camping in the bush where you have to carry all your rubbish. Over several more nights of healthy debates, the idea of KegSwappa was born.
OUR BELIEF & values
Beer is obviously critical to survival and given that mother earth is the only planet we know of that has beer we need to treasure her.
When it comes to our values it’s what you’d expect, i.e. no bullshit, help as much as we can, have fun, continuously improve and do our best to leave only footprints.
