The Good: Heavy-duty, mobile, great imprint, practical, reusable.
The Bad: Too large for bulk mailing, fairly expensive for blind giveaway.
The Bottom Line: If you’re looking to save debris from cans or bottles for any social event, the Bubba Keg will keep cups filled and customers happy!
Design (9/10): (top)
The Bubba Keg has a durable design without being too heavy. There are no sharp corners and no small parts, making this item very child-friendly. The bold colors provide a welcome accent to the silver surface, and the imprint appears very clearly and even a white imprint pops against the metal. At 128 oz. capacity, the Bubba Keg supplies the equivalent of 10 2/3 cans or 5 1/3 bottles of soda, beer, water, juice or any other liquid you want to dispense. For large parties, you will want to have several of these on hand. With the Bubba Keg filled up 80% and shaken vigorously, not a single drop spills out from beneath the airtight lid.

The spout is easy to use, but as with all beverage containers with this design, the flow gets slower and slower as the container is drained. If you are hosting a large event, it will be important to keep an eye on the drink level. The durable handle includes ridges on the underside for easy carrying, especially useful during summer events where the Bubba Keg could get wet.
Includes warning sheet:
--Hand wash only.
--Please wash all parts in warm soapy water before using.
--Always be certain the lid is tightly secured before taking a drink.
--Do not exceed product capacity with hot liquids hot liquids may scald user.
--Keep out of children’s reach when filled with hot liquids to void scalding.
--Do not use in a microwave oven.
Price (9/10): (top)
You can find comparable items in stores, but they will often run about five dollars more expensive. For the price listed and the durable design, you can definitely get your money’s worth out of years of use with this incredible item. With personalization, it becomes a great giveaway on its own; plus, it can be packed with promotional materials or even used an impromptu tote at a convention.
Overall, the personalized Bubba Keg is a very good product for both personal use and corporate promotion. Imprint them, keep them filled around your next company party, and send them home with employees at the end of the night. Not only will you save time on clean-up, but you won’t have messy cans or bottles strewn around.
