Our Brewing Operation
What does it take to produce award winning brews?  

Consistent product doesn't happen by chance, but comes from a thorough understanding of the brewing process, experience gained from hundreds of batches using the finest brewing equipment available, from  quality  malt, yeast, and  hops and a sophisticated system to fully condition our water.

The bright copper vessels are called the "brew house," the tanks that are heated during the brewing process. Heat is obtained from a roof-top boiler. The stainless tanks have are the cooled vessels that have cold glycol circulating in the dual skinned exterior.  The glycol is piped from a refrigerated storage tank.  The malt is supplied to the brew house via an auger directly from a malt mill in the malt room.  Water used in the brewing process is conditioned by reverse osmosis after being conditioned by ion displacement.  (The glycol system, steam boiler, malt mill and water treatment system are not in view of the guests).  The electronic panel above the brew house, monitors the temperatures and controls the values that regulate the steam and glycol flow.

The conical bottom stainless vessels are called  "fermenters" as they are used for the yeast to ferment and eventually be removed.  Three, one thousand gallon storage tanks (lagering tanks) are in the adjoining lager room.  These tanks accept the product from the fermenters and condition the product before being sent to the finishing tanks for serving or carbonating and serving.

Our batch size is 500 gal per brew.  Our total working capacity is 7,500 gal.  We brew both Lagers and Ales and we brew in the true German tradition.
