Brick Lane Brewing Co. have launched a brewery in Dandenong, Melbourne, which will allow other breweries to use their facilities to create their own beers.
“We wanted to give breweries the opportunity to bring their wonderful beers to a wider national and international audience,” says head brewer Jon Selton.
“We are excited about working with some of the wonderful, talented and creative brewers out there to get more of their beers out there into the world.”
BrauKon has provided the brewery with brewing and process equipment, and the facility has energy reduction, recovery and storage technologies implemented into the design. There is also a vapour condenser present, which reclaims energy from steam produced during the brewing process.
Brick Lane is the first Australian brewery to adopt cross-flow filtration technology from Pall, which will reduce energy and water usage, improve beer quality and eliminate the need to use filtration aids including diatomaceous earth.
The brewery will produce 10,000 bottles and 15,000 cans per hour and has a capacity of more than 10,000 pints of beer every day.
The public will be able to visit the brewery one weekend each month where consumers can try tasting flights and food from a rotating roster of food trucks.
