Our colleagues from head office in Crawley visited a micro-brewery, Affinity Brew Company, in Bermondsey, London SE16, to carry out an on-site demonstration of some portable cooling equipment. The reason the brewery needed some portable cooling is that this weekend (7 and 8 April) they are holding a beer festival – Cask 2018 – and were looking for an efficient way of keeping the cask-conditioned beers cool so they can be enjoyed at their best. The kegs will be in insulated racks either 2m x 2m or 4m x 2m x 0.5m which will be kept cool with an air supply at 8 degrees. London Cool will deliver two Weltem spot coolers to the brewery which will deliver cool air to each rack.
Affinity Brew Company is partnering with another micro-brewery – Partizan Brewing who are located just around the corner on Raymouth Road – to put on this event. Billed as ‘a cask beer festival the like of which we don’t think you’ll have seen before’ it will showcase some of the UK’s ‘finest and most exciting breweries’ with 30 different cask beers on the Saturday and another 30 on the Sunday – ‘when they’re gone, they’re gone’.
The festival will include breweries with intriguing names such as Left handed Giant, Tiny Rebel Brewing, Weird Beard Brew Co as well as showcasing Affiity Brew’s own April and Dry-hopped Breeze.
Steve, from Affinity Brew Company said ‘Great meeting you today. Thank you for the demonstration. Really confident that the units will be suitable . . . we’d like to book two of these for delivery.’
Affinity Brew Co started life in Tottenham Hale before moving into a former Partizan Brewery arch on the what's known as the Bermondsey Beer Mile.
