CBBR are specialists in the brewery sector and our flagship product is rental of stainless steel casks and kegs. A successful UK brewery rental company, CBBR operates a fleet of over 2.3m containers and continues to go from strength to strength.







Why rent Kegs?

Renting containers is the alternative to cash purchase, and is particularly effective with high flexibility in the business processes and sale of beer.

The rental option allows breweries to take advantage of immediate sales potential and also to manage peak demand.

Rentals include silk screen printing/colour bands of your choice with a minimum order quantity of 100 kegs. Rental pricing is available on request.
