At the moment the American beer market is still on the cusp of the 5 liter mini keg revolution. For beer enthusiasts your choices are limited but will we see more in the coming months and years? It’s hard to say, but there are still plenty of options for the American home draught enthusiasts.

Whats the hold up?

The Heineken corportation currently holds the patten on the DraughtKeg system which can be used with the Krups BeerTender 5 liter beer tapping system. Because of this American beer companies that do come out with 5 liter mini kegs must utilize a different keg tapping system.

The Newcastle Brown Ale that is currently available is released under the Heineken Corporation and uses the same pressurized tapping system. The special Heineken pressurized keg allows the beer to stay fresh for up to 30 days which is its key selling point. Most other brands that release 5 liter kegs feature gravity fed taps which may only last a night before going flat, giving them the name ‘party kegs’.

However these party kegs can be equipped with co2 systems to keep them pressurized and fresh as part of a mini keg dispenser unit.

Who are the mini keg challengers?

Coors Light is starting to challenge Heineken in this market releasing the Coors Light 5 liter keg in limited markets. Other brewers who have released 5 liter Kegs include Molson, George Killians,and Becks.

If you’re looking for some really great mini keg selections the German beer market is where it is at. Great tasting Octoberfest certified German brews there are a few out there available in the 5 liter kegs. A good source for these German mini kegs is the online beverage store Bevmo sells all kinds of brews from all over the world, most of the 5 liter mini kegs can be found in the German beer section.

Here is a list of some of the more well known 5 liter keg brands:

HeinekenHeineken Premium LightNewcastle Brown AleCoors LightDAB Original LagerSpaten Premium Lager 5 Liter Warsteiner PremiumPaulaner Hefe-weizenBitburgerBell’s Two-Hearted Ale mini-kegsMolson CanadianGeorge KilliansBell’s Oberon

You shouldn’t let the limited choice sway your decision to purchase a mini keg dispenser as some pubs or local breweries will fill empty 5 liter kegs with your beer of choice. Now this only goes for the gravity fed kegs you could not do that with the Heineken or Newcastle style DraughtKegs. The Avanti 5 liter beer dispenser will tap most any 5 liter keg including the Coors Light home draft or one of the many German brews listed above.

The 5 liter beer market is still a very small niche in the United States but more and more micro brewers are releasing their own party kegs on limited release. This will make owning your own mini beer tap a real treat if you’re a craft beer lover.
