BREW SHIELD

Unique solutions for the Brewing industry

The brewing industry is highly competitive, with brewers focused on producing quality beer with unique and flavourful profiles, much of this relies upon sensitive organic hop and bittering compounds that are highly sensitive to ageing and staling. Up until now brewers relied exclusively upon expensive cold chain and refrigerated storage to try and preserve their original brewed flavor. Brewshield is now able to provide a layer of protection to extend the “fresh window” and shelf life.

PROTECT YOUR BEER

The essential hop and bitterness character in your beer are the first to disappear after packaging, later on aroma and color begins to diminish often taking place over weeks rather than months.

Brewshield’s 100% natural organically certified stabiliser, bio-engineered to ensure that your beer can stand up to time, heat and handling, leaving it tasting like it was just brewed, for as long as possible.

Brewshield has been used in award winning beers, find out how we can help you protect your beers.

PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT

Brewers make substantial investments into brewing quality beer, in the case of craft breweries this cost goes up substantially. Much of this investment is down to creating unique and flavourful beer in a highly competitive market.

A significant portion of these costs are in the hops and grains that deliver unique botanical and bitter profiles, research has shown that these are the first to disappear after packaging. Brewshield assists brewers in making beer that tastes as good as it did when brewed.

COLD CHAIN, WITHDRAWLS AND LOST CUSTOMERS

Brewshield not only assists in assuring product quality but it helps extend shelf life and mitigate out of code and quality with-drawls. The cost of these are not only in written off stock and lost sales but a very real cost to dispose, cost of customer dissatisfaction and impaired relationships with distribution and retail partners.

By being able to better protect your beer you are able to ship further, export more and sleep better at night knowing your great tasting product stays that way !

PROVEN PROTECTION

Through the most advanced laboratory testings (Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectroscopy – EPR) we are able to show a 78% overall reduction in oxidative and beer staling indicators.

This means that Brewshield is absorbing the oxidative elements in your beer, soaking up those same oxidants that degrade beer’s flavor, aroma and color molecules.

THE REAL COST OF STABILITY

The cost of stability is often overlooked, beer that past it’s prime is still ‘ok’ and the impact of quality is often unmeasured until market share declines.

We have analysed the real costs of beer stability including the investments brewers make in secure cold chain, key ingredients that diminish fast, pasteurisation and other mechanical technologies and the costs add up fast !

The total real cost of beer stability is as high as $ 0.76 per can of beer mainly based upon the cost of premium ingredients , recall costs for an average brewery (including out of code stock) and investment in logistics, pasteurisation and cold chain.

This makes the Brewshield cost per litre insignificant in the face of these stability costs.
