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.
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.
