A DRAUGHT GUARD CASE STUDY WITH
COMPONENT BREWING CO.
Based in Milwaukee’s Harbor District, Component is a hobby–turned–obsession craft brewery. The brewery, owned and operated by three cousins, is the team’s tribute and contribution to the city’s thriving and legendary brewing history. The tap room offers a selection of 10 different beers – from an American IPA to a fruited sour blended with locally–sourced cocoa nibs.
At first, we were skeptical about installing this on our tap system. After a few weeks of searching for anything that might resemble an off-flavor, we gave up and declared Draught Guard the winner. I am confident that Draught guard is keeping our lines in great shape between regular cleanings. The beer is being presented as the brewers intended and we are saving time/money by extending the time between line cleanings.
