Project Description

Customer: Stone Brewing
Location: Richmond, USA
Installation: 144-160 kegs/h, double Chunnel 422
Year Completed: 2016

The first beer made at Stone Brewing Co.’s new brewery in Richmond soon will be flowing through taps around the region. Kegs started rolling off the production line at Stone Brewing’s 220,000-square-foot plant in the Fulton neighborhood east of downtown Richmond. “It’s a big day for us,” said Peter Wiens, Stone Brewing’s director of East Coast brewing operations, as he watched the first 20 kegs of beer proceed through the kegging line inside the plant. The brewery’s kegging line, an enormous piece of machinery made by Lambrechts, can fill about 140 kegs per hour. Each keg holds 15.5 gallons of beer. At the end of the kegging line, a large robotic arm that Stone employees have lovingly named “Travis” lifts each keg and places it on a pallet for shipping.

Dogfish Head Brewery

Project Description

Customer: Dogfish Head Brewery
Location: Milton, USA
Installation: 144-160 kegs/h, double Chunnel 422
Year Completed: 2016

A tailor-made keg line for an off-centered brewery
As you know, we had a unique application with our keg line being more than 500 meters from our bright beer cellar. This posed some big challenges during the start-up. The Lambrechts commissioning team on site did a really nice job working through the challenges to finally get to the performance guaranteed by Lambrechts. The installation team was also quite knowledgeable and did a really nice job getting the line installed.

Arcadia Brewing

Project Description

Customer: Arcadia Brewing
Location: Michigan, USA
Installation: 60–70 kegs/h, Monobloc Slimline 3-1
Year Completed: 2016

I can’t think of a single piece of equipment in any brewery that takes a greater beating than the kegging line. The robust construction and ease of operation of our Lambrechts line makes operator training easy and minimizes down time. Lambrechts has routinely applied feedback from Rotech test keg audits, which assures us of the quality and consistency of our keg cleaning and sterilization. Lambrechts commitment to using off-the-shelf parts has made procuring spare parts quick and inexpensive, while their support and documentation are second-to-none. There’s no doubt that the Slimline Monobloc was the right machine for our brewery.

As craft brewers expand their production, their existing machines can be exchanged for higher throughput or more automated machines directly through Lambrechts.
