The Russian River Brewing Company has chosen ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA GmbH to supply brewhouse and tank technology for its greenfield project in Windsor, California. Thus yet another leading American craft brewer has opted to go with the well-known Ludwigsburg company.
The brewhouse supplied by ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA for the greenfield project will achieve a capacity of 88 hectoliters (75 bbl) per brew. Among other equipment, it will have a Colibri mash agitator, a Lotus lauter tun, a Shark boiler and a T-Rex milling unit. Another noteworthy feature is a special hopping system that will enable the brewery to produce a wide spectrum of aroma profiles. The brewhouse, which is a showpiece in every respect, will be a key element of the Russian River Brewing Company’s marketing strategy when completed. In addition to the brewhouse technology, ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA will be delivering 17 cylindro-conical fermentation and storage tanks and six pressure tanks for the cold block, which is being built at the same time.
