Craft breweries are flexing their creative muscles by entering the spirits market, and a Nebraska-based manufacturer can help make the shift seamless.
“Our Patriot Craft Still Series™ is the logical step for breweries looking to add craft spirits to their lineup, or even for people looking to just operate a still,” said project manager Tanner Littrel. “Our engineers took their expertise in designing quality brewing equipment and came up with a versatile still.”
A.B.E.’s Patriot Stills™ (abestills.com) are built on a modular design and can grow as the customer’s operation grows. They range from a 50-gallon system on up to a 1,000 gallon, semi-continuous design.
“Our stills are made of copper and 304 stainless steel because we believe it should be both functional and a showpiece to draw customers in,” Littrel said. “Another A.B.E. advantage, is we offer the support equipment you need, from mash tuns to aging tanks.”
American Beer Equipment is based in Lincoln, Nebraska, and has sold everything from brewhouses to canning lines to breweries around the world since 2013. It is a division of Norland International, which has been designing and manufacturing bottled water equipment since 1993.
