Hello GrowlerWerks-ers! We hope your summers are going well.
Our summer has been busy. Evan just returned from a visit to our factories where things are moving forward, and we wanted to provide an update on uKeg production.
We released the purchase order to manufacture the initial build of 3,000 uKeg 64’s to fulfill Kickstarter rewards. The factory has been running, and if all continues to go well, we’re on schedule to deliver uKegs per our last production update. We’ll be visiting the factory again on Aug 5 to check in on production, and also work on the process for the uKeg 128 bottle.
Here’s a photo of some early production prototypes off the line:
And check out this video of one step in the bottle making line:
Yet more photos of uKeg bottles being made:
We also placed the purchase order for 3,000 regulator caps with our factory that is making these, and fabrication and assembly has also begun. It’s exciting to see that the regulator cap is being made, which with 22 separate components is a complex little machine all by itself!
We remain focused and we're looking forward to delivering uKeg products to our Kickstarter backers and pre-order customers.
