We recently put together a comprehensive overview of leading keg tracking technologies (such as barcodes, passive RFID, active RFID, bluetooth, and GPS) and wanted to share it with breweries, distributors, and anyone else seeking more information on efficient, technology solutions to minimizing keg waste and improving keg ROI.

We are excited to announce an agreement with Omni-ID, the #1 Industrial RFID Tag Provider in the World, to manufacture the tag that is central to the Keg Hounds keg tracking and data management solution. The partnership will help us meet the growing demand for our game-changing solution for a simple-to-apply, accurate, and reliable method for tracking kegs across a global fleet.
Our patent-pending, revolutionary RFID Tag design requires no welding, adhesives, or special tools to install. It is fully IP68, water, weather dust and particle proof, with an estimated 10-year+ lifespan. Omni-ID has built a reputation based on trusted, field proven designs that stand up to the harshest industrial environments. Built with Omni-ID quality, the Keg Hounds tags performs in all manner of treatments kegs receive.
Earl Hewlette, CEO of Keg Hounds is excited about the relationship and said: “As the leading on-metal RFID tag producer in the world, Omni-ID is a great partner for Keg Hounds. Omni-ID’s ability to scale production, combined with their cutting-edge technology, has greatly improved the performance of our tag. On top of that, they also have the production capabilities to allow us to keep up with demand. We recently passed 100,000 tags on kegs, and at the rate that our sales are increasing, one of our biggest concerns has been having enough tags to meet demand – an issue that, thanks to Omni-ID, we no longer face.”
Omni-ID’s CEO, Dr Tony Kington commented further: “It’s one thing to have high performing RFID tags in our range but a customer challenge like this really gets our adrenaline flowing. We needed to create a carrier for the tag that snaps into the keg chimb securely and easily without welding as well as making the whole unit waterproof, robust and long lasting. The result is fantastically simple yet high performing and will go a long way to help the excellent team at Keg Hounds eradicate waste and loss in the beer keg industry.”
