Are You Maximizing Storage in Your Keg Room?

Keg room storage is essential to the efficiency of a bar, tasting room, brewery, or restaurant. Companies looking to improve keg room organization can incorporate reusable keg racks instead of wood pallets to make it easier for your employees to safely manage your inventory.

Importance of an Organized Keg Room

An organized keg room is crucial for many reasons. For example, it will save previously wasted time by eliminating tedious tasks such as sorting through random kegs to find the correct one. It will reduce out of date product. Better organization will also reduce stocking errors.

Full kegs are heavy, weighing from 58 pounds (sixth keg barrel) up to 160 pounds. (1/2 keg barrel) A disorganized setup forces employees to wade through kegs to get to the one they need, greatly increasing the risk of injury. The disorganization also extends the time it will take for them to complete tasks. 

It is especially dangerous if kegs are stacked on top of each other, as they are much more likely to fall unexpectedly. Even if no one gets hurt when a keg falls, the movement will unsettle the beer and make it foamy, reducing its quality. 

Keg Rack Considerations and Options

Keg racking is an excellent solution to an unorganized keg room. Keg racks can help increase storeroom safety, and protect your kegs while making optimal use of the storage space. Increased organization allows kegs to be stored according to beer type, bestsellers, expiration date, or any other criteria that facilitate logical keg retrieval. 

It’s best to set up the keg racks to allow for clear, open pathways so that the kegs are easy to access. Employees should not have to maneuver through tight spaces and risk knocking items over.

With the right keg racks, there is space for more inventory, finding and moving kegs becomes less time-consuming and safety risks due to poor keg cooler organization are eliminated.
