Idols of the Craft Brewing Industry

Reference list – BrauKon 10 years in the USA

Everyone is talking about the Craft Beer Revolution causing considerable turmoil in the beer world of the United States for years. Consumers increasingly turn to craft beers. Instead of meaningless „near-water brew“ of giant, soulless beer factories they rather drink unusual beers of excellent quality. No wonder? In fact, yes, especially if you know the power of the mainstream consumption in the United States. The craft beer revolution has already been nourished by more than 2,000 breweries. Some of the most iconic craft breweries have their plants for the production of legendary beers delivered from Germany: They make their excellent brew using BrauKon equipment.

BrauKon presents a small selection from the “Reference List of BrauKon – Ten years in the United States“.



The output of beer has increased tremendously since the move from Harrisburg to Hershey. The excellent beers are brought closer to beer lovers in the tap-room and during brewery tours. Troegs is a very special customer for BrauKon as Troegs has bought the first BrauKon system.


Samuel Adams

A pioneer of the craft brewing scene in the USA. Still excellent – but no longer small: The annual production currently amounts to around 3 million hectoliters.



One of the first craft breweries in today‘s stronghold of Colorado and a model for many emerging breweries in terms of consistency and quality.


Saint Arnold

The first craft brewery in Texas experienced a great boom through the relocation to the city center of Houston four years ago.



The “heavy metal stars” of the craft brewing industry in the South of Chicago. 3Floyds is a stronghold of hoppy beers.



Left-Hand is one of the most exciting craft breweries in the United States. Its Milk Stout is a legend. Indeed, it would be hard to find a better one – worldwide.



Allagash is kind of a “Belgian brew enclave” in the Northeast of the USA. Its specialties include the Witbier of course, as well as sensational Lambic beers, entirely in the style of Flanders (Belgium).
