Over the past several weeks, we've looked back at the last century to see how far we've come in the world of bar and beverage. From the 1917 wine vintages in Europe to cocktail trends through the decades, it's been fun reminiscing about what bars were serving 100 years ago. But now we'd like to take a look at why Perlick is here and the reasons we're still in business after all these years. Let's take a look back at 100 years of bar and beverage equipment innovations.
As the entire country gathers around the television on Super Bowl Sunday, we’ll all have our rooting interests. Some will be pulling for their favorite team and others will be rooting for the host to announce, “The wings are ready!” However, a good number of us will have far more interest in the commercials than the football game itself. Ask someone about their favorite play in the Big Game or their favorite commercial and we bet they’ll recite the advertisement first!
Bars and brewpubs are facing more and more pressure to provide a wider range of beers on tap. This is directly related to the craft beer movement, which has created a growing consumer demand to try different styles of beer made by different breweries. This, in turn, has created some challenges for bars and restaurants.
One of the biggest obstacles faced by bar owners and operators is the logistics of serving these wide tap selections. With a traditional, glycol cooled system, beer must be transported from the kegs to a beer tower that is often at a distance from the walk-in where the keg is stored. This can be problematic.
An alternative is to use an air-cooled system that runs directly through the wall from the walk-in cooler to the taps on the other side of that wall. This requires less distance for the beer to travel, less tubing for the beer to travel within on its way to the faucet, and less need to run and conceal those lines within the operation. At the end of the day,
Perlick's range of forward sealing faucets are the most sanitary beer and wine faucets on the market. They feature a revolutionary ball and floating O-ring design that eliminates the need for a valve shaft. This leads to cleaner dispensing because the beer and wine are not exposed to air.
For customers, this means better tasting beverages without safety concerns. For operators, handle levers don't stick, and there's no build up of mold and bacteria in the body of the faucet. But which model of Perlick's forward sealing beer faucets is right for your bar or foodservice establishment? Let's take a look at the available designs:
