The Breweries and Chillers Keeping the Beer Chilled

Brewery Chiller Rentals

Finding the Breweries to Enjoy Summer 2020

Summer is now upon us, and it’s during the heat of the hotter months that beers are part of many American outdoor adventures. Craft breweries offer beers throughout the year to celebrate “the seasonality of beer.” As Pour My Beer explains, summer beers “are light and drinkable,” with the flavors of fruit, wheat, pale and hoppy, and the classic pilsner” being the choice across America.

Whether you’re staying close to home, or you’re planning on a well-planned summer adventure, you may want to know what breweries are open in your hometown or along your vacation route. Brewbound is a resource to see what’s brewing in their brewery database.

Ice-Cold is Great for Summer Beers, but Not Always the Best for All Beers

There is nothing better than an ice-cold beer in the heat of the summer, but not all beers are good at supercold temperatures. Food & Wine explains why you don’t want to drink every beer ice-cold. “Much like wine, different beer styles actually have different serving temperatures.”

Chilling is Not Only for the Final Product

Breweries require ultimate chilling processes to guarantee the taste that flows from bottles and taps. The chiller system, glycol chillers, plays a major role in every brewery, guaranteeing the quality of the final flow from bottles, growlers, and taps, as explained in The Equipped Brewer.
