As you know, G4 Kegs is more than just a keg provider — we partner with our clients to help elevate your brewery beyond the keg. That means being mindful of the business challenges you face, sharing industry trends, and being transparent when those trends could impact your bottom line.
With that in mind, we must announce a pricing update effective May 1st.
Why the Change
For the past two years, we’ve strived to be a good partner to our clients by committing to hold our prices even amidst market volatility. Together, we’ve made it through trade wars, tariffs, duties, a global pandemic, and economic shutdowns — all while offering you the same great prices we set in 2019. In fact, the only change we did make was to expand our volume discounts so more orders could benefit from it. Keeping our kegs affordable for clients was important to us, as we knew it was a challenging time for you as well.
If you’ve been keeping tabs on the international price of steel, you’ll know that it has increased dramatically in the last year. Likewise, freight costs have made it more and more challenging to hold our prices steady. Unfortunately, for the moment we cannot continue to absorb these additional costs.
What You Should Know
We wanted to give clients plenty of notice, so you have time to take advantage of current rates if needed. New prices will go into effect on May 1st, so if you have any upcoming keg needs you may want to consider placing your keg order before then.
We know that maintaining competitive keg pricing is paramount across the industry. Our expectation (and hope) is that these market factors will reach equilibrium soon. Of course, we will continue to keep you apprised of all changes as soon as we’re aware of them — and as always, we will be as fast as possible to drop prices, and as slow as possible to raise them.
While circumstances have necessitated this update, some things will never change:
- Our mission to elevate – At G4 Kegs, we do what we say. We’re committed to going above and beyond on every order.
- Competitive pricing – We always encourage customers to order in full pallets to get the most out of their shipping costs. If you find a better price elsewhere, let us know and we’ll see what we can do to match or beat it.
- Fast Delivery – Regional locations plus healthy inventories and manufacturer partnerships mean you get your kegs when you need them.
- Quality Kegs – All G4 Kegs are backed by manufacturer warranties, and our relationships with suppliers around the globe give you more options.
