Beer tanks systems are originally developed to ease the distribution of beer from the brewery to the end-user. But the last decades the system proved to have much more advantages.
Quality and Technical Benefits
With tank beer the beer quality can be preserved better. The system works with disposable airtight plastic bags inside the tank. Compressed air presses the beer out of the bag to the tap. Since no CO2 is added, shelf life increases: up to 12 weeks..
Since kegs are no longer required distribution is less labour intensive and more workmen friendly. Also, no return transport and cleaning of empty kegs is necessary, saving the environment.
Beside the quality advantages, beer tanks also are a great visual addition to any pub or bar. Several breweries around the world use tank beer as part of very successful marketing campaigns increasing sale of draft beer.
Financially, the system offers large benefits. Savings up to 70 % with a R.O.I. of less than 5 years are achieved. A calculation model makes it possible to calculate exact savings for each specific situation based on 60 variables.
