We have recently supplied equipment to SUDWERK, a progressive, American-style microbrewery in Zurich. Less than a year old, the brewery is proving extremely popular in a market dominated by bland lagers and German imports, offering several bold styles of beer with FLAVOUR, courtesy of Gerry Farrell, Meisterbrauer, himself an 'import' from the Northern California microbrewery revolution!
Liquid Solutions provided 2-stage sheet filtration which clarifies beer for both bottle and keg. There is an automatic crown capper capable of 2000 bottles per hour, with rotary collecting table, and an automatic labeller with 'best before' date stamper. Though output is relatively small, automation is easy to justify in Switzerland, with its high wage costs.
The bottled products are distributed throughout Switzerland; there is a mobile bar for hire, and visitors to the brewery are welcome ( 'just ring the cowbell!)
