What is tank beer
First of all tank beer is a truly fresh beer, not pasteurized or microfiltered.Immediately after production, it is transferred to a tanker that transports it to us that same day.Here, the beer is transferred to steel containers or tanks, inside which there is a special seven-layered bag to ensure the beer’s quality and consistent taste.Compressed air forced into the tank causes pressure on the inner container and pushes the beer through a pipe to the tap.
Beer stored and served thus is never in contact with air or carbon dioxide.The beer’s freshness is also guaranteed by very short and rigorously applied expiry dates – 28 days after delivery and 14 days after opening the tank.In favourable circumstances, your beer can arrive literally only a few hours after production.
Tanks have a capacity of 500 or 1000 litres, so only selected premises can serve tank beer.
It should be noted that the beer is always maintained at a constant temperature of 4 to 6 degrees Celsius, from the brewery to the glass.It does not have to be highly carbonated and so it’s more pleasant to drink.
And now enjoy a cold beer.
