Which Type of Beer Cooling System is Best for Your Florida Operation

Not much is more refreshing than a nice, cold beer during the summer. In the Florida heat, it’s important to ensure that you have the right equipment to keep beer cold all year long. Just as certain beers go better with certain foods, certain bars are better suited a certain beer cooling system.

Glycol Cooled Beer System

Is your beer cooler more than 25 feet from your bar?

Are you serving beer in a stadium? 

If you answered yes to either of those questions, a Perlick glycol-cooled beer system is for you.

The glycol-cooled system works by using a power pack outside of the beer cooler that chills a mixture of glycol and water. This mixture is run alongside the beer in copper piping, keeping the beer cold from the walk-in to the glass.

During Florida summers, keeping beers cold over long distance is of utmost importance.

Air-Cooled Beer System

Do you want to serve a wide variety of beers but don’t have the budget for an expensive system?

Is your bar located less than 25 feet from your beer cooler?

Does your beer cooler maintain a temperature between 34 and 38 degrees? 

If the previous questions seem to describe your bar and beverage operation, a new air-cooled beer system from Perlick might be the answer to your problems.

Just released by Perlick, their new air-cooled beer systems have a low initial cost and are easy to maintain. This system uses the already-cold air from the beer cooler to maintain beer temperature all the way to the faucet. With beer lines less than 25 feet long, less beer is poured down the drain when its time to clean the lines. 

Whether you’re serving beer to fifty people in a small bar or 60,000 people at a football stadium, make sure you’re using the proper equipment for your operation. Download the Perlick Guide to Beer Systems to learn more about how to properly serve beer in your Florida bar and beverage operation.
