The midwest, and especially Milwaukee, is best known for our beer brewing skills and history. Breweries are constantly opening in our city – and all over the world – coming up with new and innovative brewing techniques to create the next big idea in beer making. Despite the vast differences and variety of beers, brewing techniques, and breweries – what is one thing that ALL breweries have in common? The need for hot water. Most breweries operate at a high capacity and need access to a large amount of hot water at any given time. If a brewery’s hot water supply goes down, there’s no other choice than to shut down production, which will greatly impact daily operations of any brewery. To make sure that your brewing process is not hindered by lack of hot water, make sure that your brewery is covered – 24/7 – with hot water assurance. Reliable Water Services works directly with brewery engineers and brewmasters to determine individual brewery’s hot water needs. RWS wants to assure every brewmaster than their daily operations don’t have to be compromised in case their hot water heaters fail – and they WILL fail. RWS provides 24/7 emergency service response times in the case of a hot water emergency. So you’re always covered. At Reliable Water Services, we know you take your beer very seriously. We’ve got you covered!

Understanding Taproom Laws in Your Area

The taproom can be the key to expanding your brewery in new and exciting ways.

Smart brewers know that the more people that taste a product, the more customers they’ll have. Finding ways to get your beer in glasses is one of the hardest parts of running a beverage business. Many breweries have gone the direct route by establishing brewpubs where consumers can dine and drink on the property – like a couple of our favorites, Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee and Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Co. in Indianapolis.
