BeerNews.org - Tue, 08/09/2016 - 15:14

[Sponsored/Paid Post:]

I realize that your time is valuable so I wanted to send you a quick note on why Prettech Canada is the right choice. A few highlights…


Our unparalleled lead time here at Prettech is what really sets us apart. With years of experience, we are able to achieve a lead time that is often less than 45 days on purchase orders for fermentation tanks, and delivery time of 30-45 days for a product delivered to your door.


200 engineers and 4,000 sanitary welders building 304/316 grade stainless. A brewhouse is often built customized to the design specifications of each brewery based on the size, product, and production needs. Prettech Canada offers a variety of brewing products varying from personal smaller-sized pilot systems to full production facilities. The size of your brewhouse should be based upon your production capacity and gravity as well as the size of your facility. Let our engineers guide you through the process.


We design, manufacture, and install custom brewery equipment that is fitted to each individual business’ needs. In close cooperation with the customer, each brewery is individually planned for and manufactured to specifications. The project is presented in a detailed “2D” then 3D-model after approval, offering insight into the proposed construction and operational efficiency. A turnkey business will have all the necessary tools to produce their beer, built to the highest quality standards. By using Prettech equipment, a brewmaster knows they will have a long-lasting and professional system.

For us, exceptional quality, packaging, and an outstanding price are the cornerstones of doing business with Prettech Canada.

Brookston Beer Bulletin - Mon, 08/08/2016 - 23:07
Monday’s ad is for Carlsberg, from the 1940s, sometime during World War 2. In this Danish ad, apparently they abandoned their old label because it contained associations to the Nazis with the religious form of a swastika, and instead advertised a more modern (for the time) look. But I do love...
