  2. Making Memories on the Move: Perlick talks to Atlanta-based “Fizzy” Bar Cart

    When it comes to running a hospitality or foodservice business in the age of COVID-19, operators are having to get more creative than ever. The ability to be flexible is key. One of the ways to do that is by making a business as mobile as possible. Mobility allows for social distancing, and the distribution of crowds and staff at events.

    Today, we look at a business that embraced tap beverages on wheels a few months before the pandemic and has since made even more modifications to be sure their clients feel safe. Fizzy Vintage Mobile Bar Cart is based in Atlanta. The three-wheeled beverage cart is big enough for 6 (Perlick!) taps, but small enough to fit in almost any venue. Business owner Billy Burch came up with the idea during a leisurely run, and since then, “Fizzy” has been hired for weddings, corporate events, bar mitzvahs, and other milestone events.

  4. Perlick Asks the Beer Guy: Homebrewing

    In honor of the Brewers Association’s National Beer Week May 11-17, Perlick wants to recognize home brewers. Given the current situation our world is facing due to COVID-19, most people are spending more time at home, and some are dabbling in new hobbies. From sourdough starters to crocheting, painting to brewing beer, the opportunities are endless!

    Perlick is proud to work with some of the most skilled workers in the bar and refrigeration equipment business: engineers, machinists, welders and beer experts. Today we ask beer expert Dan Bode for his tips for successful home brewing.

    Dan is a skilled Perlick Beverage Systems Sales Engineer (and cookie baker, but that is a topic for a future blog ?). He has some simple tips to get your homebrewing operation up and running.

  5. Perlick Asks the Interior Designer: Ways to Create Comfort at Home

    Home is where the heart is. The truth is, home is where EVERYTHING is these days: work, school, dinner and a movie, the corner bar, newscasts, concerts, sporting events, etc. With stay at home orders of varying degrees across the United States due to COVID-19, we are all getting to know our homes better than we thought we ever would.

    While it is a stressful time for everyone, it has also been a time to step back and take life slower. It means more time at home with family, which for many parents of young children, has been both a gift and a challenge. It has also given us more time to think about home improvement projects. At Perlick, one of our missions when we developed our residential line was to help people enhance their homes with beautiful kitchen and home bar products that will stand the test of time.
