  • What are the conditions of use for the SUB Kegs?

    You can only use your SUB Keg with THE SUB. To ensure the right quality of the product, keep the Keg chilled in THE SUB once opened. Do not expose the Keg to direct sunlight & store them below 30°C. Do not freeze the Keg.

    Excellent beer quality is guaranteed for at least 1 month after the purchase. Once the Keg has been opened, drink within 15 days. You can check the side of the SUB Keg (or Keg sleeve) for the exact best-by date.

    We recommend disposing of the SUB Keg in an appropriate plastic waste stream. Actual realisation depends on local authorities.

  • What is the shelf life of a SUB Keg?

    We guarantee good beer quality of fully sealed SUB Keg for 1 month after purchasing from our website. Once you’ve opened your SUB Keg, the beer is guaranteed to stay fresh for 15 days, if stored in a running SUB. You can find the best-by date on the side of your Keg. We guarantee the quality of the beer through the end of the month noted. After this date, quality may decrease. In general, we recommend storing your Keg in a cool and dry location, for instance the fridge. That will ensure the best beer taste and experience.

  • How should I store SUB Kegs?

    Before use, keep SUB Kegs in a cool, dark place. If there's room in your fridge, keep a spare Keg chilled and ready to use. Set the fridge at the lowest temperature and put the Keg on the lowest shelf – this is the fridge's coldest area. Do not place the Keg in direct sunlight, store the Keg below 30 degrees, or freeze the Keg.

  • Can I put SUB Kegs in my freezer?

    No. The Kegs should not go below zero degrees as this may damage the packaging and cause beer leakage. You will no longer be able to use the Keg once frozen.

  • Why is my SUB Keg taking so long to cool inside THE SUB?

    The temperature of the SUB Keg depends on the temperature in the fridge and the time the Keg has been in the appliance. If the temperature of the room is above 30 °C and the Keg has not been pre-chilled, it can happen that the light does not turn green. The temperature of the beer, in this case, is within 2 – 6 °C and still cooling. As long as the Keg has been in THE SUB for a couple of hours, it is not a problem that the light is still red.

  • Can I swap out SUB Keg before it is empty?

    Once a SUB Keg has been opened, you need to keep it in THE SUB and keep THE SUB plugged in. This will keep the beer at the right pressure and freshness. You can take the Keg out before it is empty, but once removed it should not be consumed.

  • Can I open a SUB Keg and serve the beer like a can or glass bottle?

    No, the SUB Keg is specifically designed to be used with THE SUB. The beer inside the Keg needs to be kept under controlled pressure, otherwise, the beer will not be the quality you would expect. Piercing the Keg is not recommended as the sudden change in pressure could cause it to rupture.

  • Can the SUB Keg be transported? 

    Yes, over reasonable distances and as long as the transport does not incur high variations in altitude and therefore too much pressure. Nevertheless, once at your destination, it is better to let it rest for a while before use. Please note, the SUB Keg is not transportable by plane, because of the significant variation in altitude and therefore pressure.

  • Is the SUB Keg recyclable? 

    The SUB Keg is made of PET plastic, and the recommendation is to dispose of the Keg in an appropriate plastic waste stream. Actual realisation depends on local collection systems and policies in place.
