Do any keg suppliers actually manufacture their kegs in the USA?

Hello -
Geemacher is starting up a factory in Pottstown, PA where we will manufacture 1/6 bbl and 1/2 bbl kegs.  We produced our first 1/2 bbl kegs last week and are performing in house and external testing.  In the coming weeks, we will ramp up for 1/2 bbl production and finalize 1/6 bbl production.  We expect to be manufacturing both sizes in the USA this summer.

We will continue to carry the kegs that we sell now.  They are manufactured in China at the factory we have partnered with since 2007.  So, we will sell 1/2 bbl, 1/4 bbl, 1/6 bbl, 50L, firkins, pins and 10L manufactured in China.  (We will also offer 2L Stainless Steel growlers and 2L Stainless Steel mini kegs this summer)  In addition to the complete line of Chinese manufactured kegs, we will offer the US manufactured 1/6 and 1/2 bbl kegs.  This may expand to additional sizes in the future.

Pricing has not been finalized, but will be a little higher than our current pricing for Chinese kegs.  We will make an announcement when the US manufactured kegs are available.

American Keg Company proudly manufactures 1/2 and 1/6 BBL kegs in our plant in Pottstown, Pennsylvania.  Our kegs are crafted from domestically sourced 304 stainless steel and go through a rigorous pickling and passivation process to ensure a food grade safe and corrosion free container.  All kegs are delivered with Micro Matic "D" system valves and can be custom embossed, striped, and / or screen printed with a customer logo.  

American Keg also stocks a full line of imported kegs to meet customer demand for different sizes and styles including 1/2, 1/4, 1/6, 50 L, 30 L, 10 L, Firkin, and Pin kegs.  We will not be undersold on imported kegs!  Even if you purchase imported kegs from American Keg you are supporting an American Manufacturer.  Visit www.americankeg.com for more information.  Cheers!

The quick answer is no, they all come from offshore.
However there are 2 companies in the planning stages to start manufacturing in the USA.
I expect late 2014 will be a time to revisit this question.

If you are in the market for one-way, recyclable plastic kegs, the KeyKeg is now being manufactured in the USA at our new production plant in Joliet, Illinois!
