Anatomy of a Nanokeg

Click on the underlined elements of our label and discover what our Nanokeg says.


Amount of beer held.


Alcohol By Volume

The amount of alcohol present in the beer.

International Bittering Units

Provides a measure of the bitterness of the beer, which comes from the hops used during the brewing process. The higher the number, the bigger the hop profile.

Standard Reference Method

Provides a measure of the color of the beer based on a consistent light source. Basically, how dark the beer is.


The shape of our beer label reflects this with the peak signifying the (top-fermented) ale and the trough signifying the (bottom-fermented) lager.
