It feels bloody unreal to be able to say ‘welcome back to the pubs'. Seeing our mates starting to open their doors again really makes the heart full.
When the 'C-word' hit it stopped all keg business in Australia. It wasn’t a nice time watching pubs, bars and venues shut their doors indefinitely with no guarantees for the future. As a business, we also had to completely reset. But in true Balter spirit, and like many Aussie businesses, we just got on with it.
We took back all 1400+ untapped kegs, cleaned them up, stacked them away and waited for the day we could fill them again. It’s with a big old grin we can say that day has arrived and like any not-so-good situation there’s always a silver lining. In this case, it's that there’s never been a better time to drink fresh XPA at your local with new kegs making their way around the country to 300+ venues every day.
