The most recent development is the RackAeriale concept-a hybrid-design, draft beer dispensing system utilizing technology from the original beer dispensing systems which allows for beer to be poured from wood barrels. It incorporates advanced technology to extract barrel-aged beer that is chilled and infused with Nitrogen and CO2 gas. “Aging beer in wine or whiskey barrels creates a soft, complex flavor profile which is best enjoyed straight from the barrel,” says Charley. Dogfish Head and AC Beverage developed a process to perform beer transfers into the wine barrels for aging and nitrogen preservation to keep a blanket of N2 on the beer, protecting it from oxygen which can permeate a wood barrel.

The development of the beer line cleaning/dispense equipment and distribution of chemicals for line cleaning continues to be a priority, this exposure enables AC Beverage to constantly improve methods and technology to keep up with the increased demands due to the surge in craft breweries.
