WE ARE WITH YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
At ZIP, we are your partner throughout the entire brewery development process. We will be as involved as you are comfortable with; it’s an honor to be a part of your team. Always at your fingertips – you can count on us for solutions, not just some tanks and pipes with instruction manuals.
The engineers at ZIP design equipment that integrates with your brewery design. Our past designs include everything from modern stainless steel with glass steps to traditional copper with wood. You can choose from one of our existing designs or we will be happy to work with you to design something completely new.
A picture speaks a thousand words (and then some), so our designers create meticulous 3D renders of your brewery. Our partners have found these renders to very effective securing funding and preliminary marketing, not to mention they’re a great final check before we begin manufacturing your brewery.
Once you approve the layout, design and 3D renderings, ZIP provides you with technical plans for site preparation: these include water connection plans, electricity connection plans and canalization plans. Requirements for floor and wall covering, temperature control and water supply are also provided. Our aim is to help you prepare the best home for your future brewing equipment.
Equipment is typically shipped on trucks for local deliveries in Europe, or in containers for cross continental shipments. Whatever the method of shipment, we are experts in packing your precious equipment for the long trip across treacherous roads and seas. At your request, we will be happy to handle the shipping and logistics of getting the equipment to your brewery.
After the equipment is fully installed and piping and connecting work is completed, a water trial brew is conducted. This allows us to make any final tweaks to prior to brewing. Following a successful water trial, one of our brewmasters will stay with you to train in your brewing staff, brew the first batch, and ensure that the brewing staff is fully comfortable with working on the new equipment.
Our team is committed to complying with all applicable legal regulations and maintaining all of the technical standards and directives as outlined by the European Union, focusing on producing high quality products and services while keeping our colleagues safe and healthy.
