How are microbrewing systems different from traditional breweries?

It’s not difficult to notice the differences between microbreweries and traditional breweries. The most obvious difference is the amount of product they produce each year; microbreweries produce no more than 15,000 barrels, while traditional breweries produce millions of barrels. As volume increases, so does brand awareness.

Traditional brands of beer tend to have simpler flavors. Small breweries are experimenting more with ingredients and flavors, creating unique blends that are only suitable for certain seasons. They can also be stronger and more expensive than beers at traditional establishments.

Asked Questions

At what scale of brewery production is considered “micro-craft”?

The Brewers Association defines micro-craft breweries as those producing less than 15,000 barrels per year. This equates to brewing no more than 450,000 US gallons per year.

How much space does a microbrewery need?

Plan for a small 3-7 barrel microbrewery of at least 1,500-3,000 square feet. This includes the brewery plus fermentation rooms, cold storage, packaging areas, ingredients, laboratories and offices. The larger space allows for more comfortable production volumes and the ability for future growth.

What important utilities are needed to operate brewery equipment?

Main utilities include electricity, water, drainage, ventilation, refrigeration, gas pipes for any direct fired kettles and steam where applicable. Ensure adequate connection sizes, pressures, drainage slopes and staged distribution.
