Brewery Automation

Brewery Production and Packaging Automation and Control Systems

Automated brewery software and solutions are designed to reduce the time you spend managing equipment and processes so you can focus on the art of crafting beer.

Keep Pace with Market Demands

Increase Capacity and Operational Efficiency Without Adding Costs

As a brewer your main focus is to produce high-quality beer to meet customer demand. There are many competing pressures to running a profitable, productive brewery. Consistent quality, improving yield, and reducing production time and costs are just a few of those pressures. To build a better brewery, you need flexible processes and better insights into your processess

We understand the brewing industry and the challenges you face every day. Our focus on beer production optimization addresses every phase of your operation. That focus helps you address cost, quality, and flexibility to meet demand, from grain handling through waste treatment and packaging.

Our solutions for brewers and OEMs combine world-class engineering, technology, and optimization services with proven results for greater productivity, quality, and consistency.

Smart Brewing Solutions Provide Insight

Full Sail Brewing Taps Manufacturing Intelligence

Craft brewer upgraded to a fully-automated, networked mash filtration system and reduced brew cycle time and enhanced product quality. The information-enabled system provides real-time information that allows Full Sail Brewing to gain greater control over their process. This system enhanced the quality of each brew. The move to a more automated brewing system reduced the cycle time by 50% and increased capacity by 25%. Full Sail also decrease water use by one million gallons annually helping to augment its sustainability goals.

Lakefront Brewery Boosts Production Speed

Craft Brewer Increases First-pass Yield and Throughput

Craft brewer increases first-pass yield and throughput with new filling equipment. A new machine increases production speed by 50 percent to meet growing demand for beer.

Lakefront Brewery needed a filler that would help them manage product quality and enable faster product changeovers from 12-ounce to 24-ounce bottles, and from year-round to seasonal brews.

Rockwell Automation and partner, KHS, were able to create a cost-effective, high-performance solution to produce small beer outputs in a high-throughput, sterile environment.
