Craft breweries are becoming more and more popular and this year the growth rate of craft breweries actually outpaced that of commercial breweries. It was estimated that craft beer revenue has grown at an annualized rate of 19 percent to $4.2 billion over the last five years and forecasts put the segment at $6 billion by 2019.

Poor sanitation affects the quality and taste of beer. In order to deliver a quality glass of beer, every time, sanitation of the brew vessels is key - and a step that must be repeated throughout the process.

BrewCheck craft brewery sanitation program is equipped with all the tools needed to ensure proper sanitation is achieved. With SSOP support and ATP validation tools, managers can easily train and assess staff performance. Local deliveries and support give brewmasters financial and operational control and flexibility. Staff training on proper sanitation procedures, as well as, mandatory OSHA GHS regulations facilitates compliance. Along with Spartan’s complete line of cleaners and sanitizers, BrewCheck helps brewers protect their brand.

“When it comes to craft beer, it's all about the flavor,” said John Swigart, President, Spartan Chemical Company. “Sanitation is the first step in a great brew process. BrewCheck gives brewers a program that allows them to take control of their flavor profile.”

In conjunction with BrewCheck, Spartan is introducing Acid Blend FP a nitric and phosphoric acid blend detergent. Formulated to clean and passivate stainless steel tanks, Acid Blend FP inhibits the negative impacts of iron residue on beer’s flavor and leaves surfaces sparkling. The low foaming formula is designed for use in manual and CIP cleaning operations.

The BrewCheck sanitation program and Acid Blend FP are available through Spartan’s select distributor network. For more information or to find a distributor near you, visit www.spartanchemical.com
