#BehindYourBusiness: What goes into an Irish stout?

Happy St. Patrick’s day everyone! As you celebrate with an Irish stout today, take a moment to think about all of the equipment necessary to create this festive brew.

1To make the perfect Irish stout, brewers must have specific equipment to produce the correct taste and consistency of this well-known beer. Additionally, brewers must have the necessary equipment to produce the quantity of beer needed for their audience.

In creating an Irish stout, brewers need: kegs, boilers, kettles, cooling systems, fermentation tanks, storage tanks, filters, piping and tubing, cleaning equipment, refrigeration equipment, tap handles and waste treatment systems. If the brewer is interested in bottling their brew, they will also need bottling and canning lines, conveyors and beer-labeling machines.

As you can see, creating an Irish stout – or any beer for that matter – is a specialized process that requires a multitude of equipment. If you’re dreaming of opening your own brewery or expanding your existing one, give us a call. And have a safe and fun St. Patrick’s Day!
