Keg pooling business, Konvoy, hosted a gym games event on May 25, working with a local Melbourne gym to focus on ‘improving wellbeing and mental health’ in the brewing industry.

The event, held at 98 Gyms in Melbourne, was ‘aimed at bringing the industry together’ after an isolating few years. Konvoy stated that $6,000 were raised for its charity partner, Gotcha4Life, a non-profit foundation that has a goal of ‘zero suicides’.

Gotcha4Life (which has previously worked with Lion) delivers mental fitness programs within communities, to ‘engage, educate and empower’ people about their mental health.

Nick Becker, Konvoy Australian General Manager, explained why his company had put on the event.

“Our initiative is to change the narrative about what bonding is in the alcohol industry and the positive relationships that can be built between friends, teams and colleagues.”

Konvoy team members and coaches were joined at the event by staff from MoonDog brewery, Burleigh Brewing and Bonehead Brewing, amongst others.

Some participants travelled from inter-state get involved, with a staff member from Burleigh Brewing saying: “We are pretty excited to take part in today’s challenge. We have flown down from Queensland and have had team shirts made ready to represent.”

Konvoy recently expanded its executive team with a number of key appointments. The company is an international leader in the branding, repair and maintenance of stainless steel beer kegs. Konvoy also offers keg rental, and tech-based tracking systems to breweries.
