Craft brewery equipment - making the right decision

If you are thinking of setting up or expanding a craft brewery to make beer to be cask conditioned, bottle conditioned, kegged, carbonated and bottled, or served in bag-in-boxes or pins, Vigo supplies a range of brewery equipment including brewing systems, temperature control systems, fermentation and conditioning tanks, filtration equipment, bottling and kegging equipment, and bag in box filling machines.

Equipment for Brewers - Making the right decision

Choosing to invest in new equipment can help you maximise production and reduce labour costs, as long as you make the right choice. Choosing equipment can lead to many different questions:

  • How can I find out which pieces of equipment can help me?
  • How much will the equipment cost?
  • How can I reduce labour costs, yet increase production?
  • Will the new equipment integrate easily into my existing operation?
  • How can I be certain that I’m choosing the appropriate equipment to suit my business – both for now and the future?
  • If there is a problem, can I be sure that it will be dealt with quickly and efficiently, to ensure I don’t lose production time and incur additional costs?
  • Where can I get consumables and spare parts quickly and easily, at competitive prices?
