Top 10 ways to recycle a beer keg

12th May, 2014 by Lauren Eads

After the success of our top 10 ways to recycle a wine barrel, we decided to turn our attention to beer, discovering a host of weird and wonderful ways to transform the humble keg.

Beer kegs

The eco-conscious among us have long trumpeted the benefits of so called “up-cycling” in which disused items are given a new lease of life and a completely new use.

But as this list proves, some have taken their ability to transform an everyday object, such as an unassuming and tired beer keg, to another level.

Scroll through to see some of our favourite ways to up-cycle a beer keg…

    Except for the fact that a consumer doesn’t actually own these kegs that they destroy/”repurpose”. Kegs are leased to consumers and it is illegal to do pretty much everything you showed off. Brewers get hit with the cost when you don’t return your keg. Way to treat them.

    Well said SlipperyPete – us brewers do occasionally sell old kegs though – just ask us first!
