Most craft brewers start out small but are anxious to grow their business as quickly as possible. Over time, automating as many processes as possible will help you to grow without requiring a lot of additional space or staffing. Automating your filling process is one of the easiest ways to save time in getting your product out the door. Talk with your vendor about what adding beer filling equipment to your brewery can do for increasing your production capacity.
Of course, beer filling equipment won’t increase your actual brewing capacity, but it will help you get the beer out the door once it’s ready. Adding this equipment in conjunction with increasing your beer production can help you grow your business much more quickly.
You can choose from a few different types of beer filling equipment. Depending upon how your beer is typically delivered, you can choose just one of these, or all three.
- Keg Fillers – Keg fillers can clean and sanitize your returned kegs before you fill them for redelivery. In addition, these make short work of filling the kegs without sacrificing carbonation.
- Bottle fillers – Bottle filling machines fill multiple sizes of bottles, as needed. These fill bottles about three times as fast as hand filling. You can choose from various filling speeds, too.
- Can fillers – If you package your beer in cans, using a can filler to fill and seal your cans will speed your process dramatically. These fillers also offer multiple speeds and work with multiple can sizes.
Stay ahead of the growth curve by adding new equipment as your business needs demand. Simple changes, like adding beer filling equipment can help you reach the new production goals you need to grow your business and increase your profits.
