BrewShield: New Natural Biotech Extract Extends Shelf Life of Beer
Read the latest article in the Brewer Magazine here which covers an interview with our founding partner Andrew Planting and his outline of what Brewshield means for all brewers, its ability to assist the brewer in preserving essential hop flavors and increasing the critical “fresh window” so that beer can taste at its best for as long as possible.
Andrew shares his personal experience in working with US craft brewers “This organic compound stabilizes craft beer protecting the aromatics and flavor profiles to deliver a fresher, full-bodied product for longer,” said Andrew Planting, Director of Stoak, the company that makes BrewShield. “This is especially important in the competitive craft beer market where quality is key. Especially when you consider that there are more than 9,000 craft breweries competing for 25% of the American beer drinking market.”
Specifically Andrew talks about some high profile brewers who are using Brewshield “Steve Gonzalez, (MS Brewing and Distilling), Senior Manager of Brewing and Innovation at Stone Brewing Napa, trialed BrewShield on their pilot system against a control brew that was brewed at the same time. “The BrewShield-treated beer showed much better flavor stability using our proprietary Freshness Scoring System,” he said. “I have since incorporated BrewShield into nearly every whirlpool treatment at our Stone Napa location. It is flavor neutral, and gives me peace of mind that the beer will stay just a little fresher, a little longer, once it goes onto a truck heading off to our Distribution Center, and out of my hands. I have been using it successfully for almost a year now.”
