Craft Beer Production with Braumat Technology - Article
In an era when the majority of beer is industrially produced by a handful of major international companies, the Americans are turning to an old art form. Only 30 breweries existed in the United States in 1980; today, that number has grown to more than 2,400 – many of which are small local breweries. Yet none of this would be economically feasible without state-of-the-art technology – technology that often includes Siemens Braumat automation systems.
