Walk-In Refrigeration For Local Craft Breweries

Over the last few years there has been a huge uptick in craft breweries popping up all over the country. With more and more companies coming out with turn-key solutions to get a brewery up and growing, and the huge consumer demand for more flavors of craft beers the amount of small, independent craft brewers has been exploding over the last few years. While these turn-key brewery solutions offer everything a small brewery may need to get up and running in terms of producing their own craft beers, they lack an often overlooked part of the process - cold storage of the product.


Once the beer has been brewed, where do you store it? This is where walk-in coolers come into play. Whether you’re moving into a new construction space or you are opening the operation in a pre-existing location - there are options for walk-in coolers for you to help store the beer once it’s been brewed. There are two solutions - an indoor walk-in cooler that is installed in an area within your building, or an outdoor walk-in cooler that acts as a standalone unit outside of your building. There are benefits to both, and really it comes down to the amount of space you currently have as well as the amount of space you expect to need. An indoor cooler allows for ease of access by employees and staff, and are easier to set up and are more secure since they are inside the building. The downside to an indoor cooler is lack of available space for said unit. Now for an outdoor cooler, limited space is generally less of a worry. Installation of an outdoor unit is a lot easier (as long as the installation is taking place on a hard, level area) and the unit can generally be larger as more space is available outside the building.
