Draught Beer Quality Manual Now Available Online
The Brewers Association has just completed the Draught Beer Quality Manual, available at http://www.draughtquality.org. This is a comprehensive volume that consolidates the previously fragmented information on draught beer quality from numerous sources. This is truly the first attempt at establishing industry standards that align the variables of beer service and dispense, balanced systems, and cleaning/maintenance practices, and it is done very well.
Leading the development of this manual was Ken Grossman, President of Sierra Nevada Brewing Company and 2008 Chairman of the Brewers Association Technical Committee, with funding and support provided by the United States Department of Agriculture and the Colorado State Department of Agriculture. Mr. Grossman lead a team of more than two-dozen industry professionals who worked tirelessly on the project to bring it to fruition.
