Brewpoint opens with BrauKon brew house
Technology meets aesthtetics
Brewpoint was finally able to open its doors in the English town of Bedford. Brewpoint is a state-of-the-art brewing facility with the flexibility to produce the styles of beer that consumers are demanding, equipped with the technology and brewing expertise to guarantee consistently excellent beer. Brewpoint is more than just a brewery: It’s roastery, shop, eating and gathering hub built on five generations of craft beer. It’s built openly, so that visitors can see what’s going on behind-the-scenes.
“From finding the initial concept up to commissioning – with BrauKon we had great team by our side. For us it was important to find a partner who did not only have the technical and technological expertise, but also placed an emphasis on the importance of brewery design. We’re really excited to be brewing great beer now and inspire our customers with our concept”, says Ian Jones, Operations Director and Head Brewer at Wells & Co.
BrauKon delivered a turnkey brewery system, including malt intake, milling system, a 4-vessel-brew house (30hl) with separate whirl pool as well as fermentation and storage cellar. We also developed an individually tailored yeast management system to guarantee best beer quality. For the first time, BrauKon also delivered the carbonization and blending system. For cold hopping (dry hopping) Brewpoint decided to go for the Original BrauKon HopGun to guarantee a consistent, efficient dissolving of the oils and aromas from hop pellets in the finished beer. Our client also opted for the BrauKon BrauMill – a flexible, operator-friendly grist mill that sets new standards in the gentle milling of all types of malt thanks to its fast and flexibly adjustable milling gap. The fully automated control system BrauControlPro allows for a technologically orientated recipe management and can be maintained remotely 24/7.
The brew masters at Brewpoint will be brewing both traditional english beer styles, such as Cask Ales, as well as international styles from all over the world.
