Entrepreneur Profile: Max Chautin Founder of KegSkins


The KegSkin is an insulating wrap that keeps your keg cold for 5 plus hours, eliminating costly spending on ice, prep time and inconvenient messes. To adequately keep a keg cold, the average consumer spends roughly 10- 15 dollars worth of ice per keg. On top of this, a receptacle or container must be handy to hold the mess made by the melting ice, causing you to spend extra money. Keg's are already heavy and hard to transport, so why make the process more expensive and complicated?

The KegSkin will keep your beer cold for the duration of your gathering. Thus, the KegSkin saves you money and piece of mind. It pays for itself after only 2 uses and is fully customizable.

In less than 1 year of business, the KegSkin had already been featured on some of the most popular websites on the internet, such as Gizmodo.com, MSNBC Gadgetbox, Business Insider, urbandaddy.com, groupon.com, brobible.com and totalfratmove.com. The company is also currently being used by Wrigley Field in Chicago and the Venetian in Las Vegas.
