  3. You Know You Take Beer Seriously When...

    It probably makes sense that Perlick takes beer dispensing seriously since our founders are German. But to say the Germans take beer seriously is an understatement. A serious one. In fact, there's a word in German -- bierernst -- which means "deadly serious" when converted in conversation, but the literal translation of the word is "beer serious." Yes, they're that serious.

  5. The Importance of Serving Beer at the Right Temperature

    The Importance of Serving Beer at the Right Temperature

    Beer. Suds. Ale. Stout. Nectar of the gods. The reason we know god loves us… No matter what we call it or how it's used in famous quotations, beer comes in many different styles and varieties. So if not all beers are created equal, why do bartenders often serve them that way?

    With the growing craft beer industry taking up more and more of the market share, it's important for bar operators to understand the science behind beer and its variety of flavors. At the same time, it's obviously also important to consider customer preferences no matter what they might be. Let's start by looking at a two of your customers:

    Macro Mike
    Macro Mike just got off work. It's Friday. It takes him 10 minutes to get to the bar, and he walks in at 5:11. He wants Coors Light, and he wants it COLD. Heck, he even wants it in a frosted mug. After all, it's 95º in the shade.

  8. Save Space and Add Selection with a Single Beer Dispensing Unit

Everything you do, every change you make, has an impact to the system as a whole.

  15. An Easy Way for Bars to Increase Their Tap Selections

    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,

  16. Which Perlick Forward Sealing Faucet Is Right for My Bar?

    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:


    Perlick's 630SS Forward Sealing Faucet is made with food grade 304 stainless steel. It was introduced last year with a patented forward-sealing design. With fewer parts than conventional faucets, users see improved reliability and fewer service calls when they make the switch to the 630SS. This easy-to-clean faucet

  17. How to Create the Right Beer System on the First Try

    Getting your beer system right on the first try is critical. And to get it right, beer system engineers have to consider all the hard questions and not gloss over the details. But what are those questions, and what are some of the correct answers?

    To begin, it's important to ask what kind of pressure source do you need?

    This is determined by the distance of your beer run, as well as the changes in elevation when comparing your cooler to your dispensing station. This will determine whether you should use carbon dioxide or a CO2/nitrogen blend. In addition, if your draft beer program includes a popular nitro beer or you're serving wine-on-tap, a 25/75 blend of carbon dioxide to nitrogen will be needed.
