Brewhouses -

American Beer Equipment designed their Brewhouses on the premise that the individual personalities of craft beer should be able to be replicated at each brew, whilst enabling the brewer to have complete control of the process. ABE Brewhouses are installed in over 90 successful craft breweries across America. There are many options available to choose from. from a full turn-key brewery or a single piece of equipment:

  • 2, 3 or 4 vessel systems
  • Capacities of 2 to 43 BBL-UK (3 to 60 BBL-US)
  • Fully automatic or semi-automatic control
  • A range of automation features to enable customisation of brews

See Features below for more information about ABE Brewhouses. With installation and commissioning by our team of engineers and ABE, and training given to you and your staff, we are able to provide you with full technical support throughout the lifetime of your brewhouse. We ensure that all equipment we supply meets all relevant British and European Health & Safety Directives and Standards.

ABE Brew Houses are installed in over 100 successful craft breweries across America. Here are 2 testimonials from craft breweries in America:

“We love our American Beer Equipment. We invested in a 15BBL brewing system. The stainless steel is high quality and the system includes a lot of bells and whistles. Features like the automatic valve controls and being able to run the whole system from the easy-to-use touch screen are excellent! The design makes brewing a breeze.” Pete Szunyogh – Tomoka Brewing Company, USA

“All of the brewers we’ve shown our ABE Brewhouse to have been impressed and quite jealous.” Dave Russo – Snowbank Brewing, USA
