The ABS Keg Viking is a state of the art keg washer that provides fast, efficient cycle times to make the keg cleaning process as simple and thorough as possible. The ABS Keg Viking is a one of a kind design and has one of the lowest price points in the industry. Designed BY BREWERS, FOR BREWERS.
ABS Commercial has been giving away keg washers since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our ABS team jumped at the opportunity to help out independent brewers because we’re brewers too, and we truly care about the future and well-being of our industry.
Rewind to March 2020, when COVID-19 seems to bring everything to a halt: People around the globe are on edge as businesses close and friends and family isolate from one another. Seemingly overnight, the world flips upside-down.
We talked to countless customers who were worried about their business, their livelihoods, and their families. After hearing so many of these stories, we wanted to do something about it. We wanted to find a way to give back to the craft beer community, to bring joy and hope to brewery owners, and we wanted to find a way to put a smile on people’s faces from afar (or at least six feet).
The ABS Giveback Campaign is something that the members of the craft beer industry can look forward to, with no strings attached. We wanted to give back to everyone, not just our customers, which is why we kicked the campaign off by giving away an ABS Commercial Keg Viking Keg Washer. No matter the size of the brewery, a keg washer is almost a necessity. We wanted to give back something that would increase productivity, reduce headaches, and be a tool to achieve a higher level of success.
The ABS Giveback Campaign has been a huge success. So far, we have received nearly 6,000 entry submissions. We are proud to say that we have given away three Keg Vikings to three lucky breweries from different parts of the country.
Here is our list of winners:
Our first winner was A.J, Breichbel, former Assistant Brewer at Rough Edges Brewing Company in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania.
Our second winner was Jim Stutzman, Owner of Lazy Horse Brewing Company in Ohiowa, Nebraska.
Our third winner was Jamie Kidwell-Brix, Owner and brewer at Earthen Ales in Traverse City, Michigan.
Our fourth winner from the 2021 Craft Brewers Conference, was Barry Owings, Owner at Broomtail Craft Brewery in Wilmington, North Carolina.
Our fifth winner, was Chuck Croix, Brewer at Helton Brewing in Phoenix, Arizona.
Our sixth winner from the 2022 Craft Brewers Conference, was Amanda Poliak, Owner at Awkward Brewing in Fayetteville, Georgia.
Our ABS Commercial family has been thrilled with the success of the ABS Giveback Campaign and has had so much fun seeing, and hearing, the excitement from all of the winners. With all of that said, we are super excited to announce that we will be giving away ANOTHER Keg Viking Keg Washer on December 5thth of this year!
