What is a polypin?
A polypin is a plastic bag inside a cardboard box that lets you enjoy naturally carbonated, unfiltered beer at home.
What do I need to use a polypin?
Just the polypin! It comes with a self-dispensing tap so you can pour straight from the box. We recommend that you store the polypin somewhere cool.
What’s the beer like from a polypin?
Beer from a polypin is like the cask beer you drink in the pub. It’s naturally carbonated and is not filtered like our bottled beers are, so a polypin needs time for the yeast to settle out before you drink it. The carbonation (fizziness) of a polypin is less than that of keg, bottle and can beer.
How long do they last?
This is a tricky one! Once the polypin is open we recommend drinking within seven days. However, in ideal conditions (cool, dark, and not moving the polypin), the beer will last for much longer than this, possibly more than two weeks. If the beer is kept in a warm place fermentation may begin again causing the polypin to swell and requiring excess gas to be vented off.
