Beer Philosophy

It’s just this simple – By not filtering, pasteurising or using additives, Zerodegrees beer stays healthy and nutritious...and this is exactly what we have done from the beginning.

We started brewing fresh craft beer in 2000 with a small team of brewers who we're dead set on delivering fresh beer to the growing nation of beer lovers! We designed each brewery so that we could brew on site and in sight - from tank to mouth.

All of the beer served at Zerodegrees go straight from maturation tank to the tap, meaning there no need to keg. It's tank fresh beer, without the transportation - it really doesn't get any fresher than that.

Mini

Zero Degrees Mini Keg

Kegs

Zerodegrees' 5 litre mini-kegs are perfect for any occasion or even if you don't have one. Take one with you and enjoy the Zerodegrees experience whenever you want.

Venting the keg

Carefully vent the barrel by opening the value on the top of the keg. First, lift the red tab handle on top and turn it anti-clockwise, giving it a quarter of a turn

Preparing to Dispense

Place the barrel at the edge of the table. Bend the red tab on the front of the barrel towards you and pull out the tap. The stem will ease straight out of the keg

Pouring the beer

Hold a tilted glass under the stem end. Turn the tap anti-clockwise until the beer comes out. Pour the beer down the side of the glass.

Closing the Tap

Close the tap by turning clock-wise holding a glass underneath to catch any drips. It is not necessary to push the tap in after every drink

Keg FAQS

KEG FAQS

How long will a 5L keg stay fresh for?

Once opened and as long as you can keep it in the fridge as much as possible we can last around 3 days.

How many glasses of beer can I enjoy from a Mini-Keg?

There are just under 9 pints.

Is it an environmentally friendly product?

Yes, the packaging is 100% recyclable. It is also extremely efficient considering that one single keg holds five litres of beer. For easy disposal, the empty packaging with the tap pipe can also be thrown out with the household bin.

When I try to draw beer, all I get is foam, why?

This is usually because your Mini-Keg is not cold enough. It must be placed in the refrigerator for at least 10 hours to ensure the temperature of the beer in the keg is around 5°C. Even though the keg usually feels cold to the touch when it’s refrigerated, this is because the metal exterior becomes cold much more quickly – it doesn't always mean that the beer is actually cold enough. For the perfect pour, make sure you open the tap pipe quickly and completely when drawing beer.
