Smart Keg with Sensor

Kegshoe and Binary Beer Launch Industry-First Weld-Free, 5G Keg Sensors in North America

By Kegshoe Press on May 9, 2023

TORONTO, ONKegshoe, a leading keg tracking software provider, and Binary Beer, an Australian-based IoT innovator, are excited to announce the North American arrival of KegLink™ sensors. These groundbreaking, weld-free sensors transform regular kegs into smart, digitally-connected assets.

The KegLink™ sensors deliver real-time location, temperature, and coupled ("on-tap") data, providing breweries, distributors, and lessors with unparalleled visibility and control over their sales and operations. This innovative technology marks the industry's first weld-free, 5G keg sensor with coast-to-coast connectivity in the United States.

"After years of rigorous testing with leading breweries in the US, Canada, and abroad, we're proud to introduce the KegLink sensors to the market," said Michael Burton, CEO of Binary Beer. "With KegLink data integrated within Kegshoe, breweries of any size have access to transformative data that was previously out-of-reach," added Adrian Pawliszko, CEO of Kegshoe.

The sensors' simple, weld-free design ensures easy installation and robust durability. Unlike traditional retrofit solutions that require costly, time-consuming installation processes, KegLink sensors can be easily attached to most kegs — including sixtel, quarter, and half-barrel US keg sizes — enhancing operational efficiency while reducing costs.

Rated for IP69K, they’re an ideal solution for the harsh conditions often encountered in breweries and transportation. With their 5G connectivity, KegLink sensors deliver seamless data transmission across the country.

Breweries who have implemented KegLink sensors have seen a significant reduction in keg loss, reducing it to close to 0% annually. This presents the potential for considerable cost savings and operational efficiency across the entire supply chain.

The arrival of US-compatible KegLink sensors is a significant step towards the digital future of the brewing industry. Kegshoe and Binary are proud to be at the forefront of this transformation, fostering innovation, sustainability and efficiency across the sector.
