Beer, BBQ, and Quality Data?
Quality data might not be a typical topic for discussion during a BBQ event, but when it comes to brewing and maintaining high standards for production, it’s the most important topic. While numerous myths exist
about beer—from the age-old debates of drinking temperature and how the beer is best served to more mysterious stories like the meaning of “33” on the Rolling Rock bottle—it is undeniable that maintaining high quality and a consistent taste profile will keep consumers happy.
In recent years, there’s been an uptick in the number of homebrewers trying to master the craft of brewing. And while many home brews may be worthy of a tap next to the great beers of our time, what are the chances the batch can be replicated in the future? Unfortunately, it’s unlikely. This is because in-home practices don’t employ the same rigorous quality control standards as craft beer and mass-market brewing operations.
Beyond taste, why is quality control important? A palatable, consistent beer establishes a brand and ensures the safety, satisfaction, and loyalty of consumers. However, the intricacies of quality control in a brewery can become quite complex considering the number of tanks of beer that may be fermenting at once. And one misstep or unrecognizable batch of an ever-popular quaff could spell disaster in a highly competitive market where new competitors are cropping up daily—some even making the leap from basement barroom to taproom.
One small, but rapidly growing microbrewery recognized the importance of quality and implemented InfinityQS’s quality management system to ensure the consistency of its beers. The scalable solution tracks every intricate step of the brewing process for dozens of tanks of beer. Backed by technology, the brewers maintain compliance with strict quality standards and always know how each beer will taste when it’s ready to be served. (Read more
To spread quality best practices to other brewers, InfinityQS has partnered with the Colorado Brewers Guild
to host the first “Total Brewing Quality” event. One-on-one expert workshops and group presentations on sanitation processes, measurement technology, and quality data management and analysis are designed to help brew masters, quality professionals, and manufacturing engineers re-imagine quality at every level of brewing in Colorado. This back-and-forth event is a chance for InfinityQS to hear what Colorado brewers have to say about their industry and their challenges, and to share quality expertise with this audience.
