Chestnut Hill Brewing Co. Doubled Operations Thanks to Custom Drake Chiller Solutions

Chestnut Hill Brewing Co. Custom Chiller and brite tanks

Located in Philadelphia at Market at the Fareway, Chestnut Hill Brewing Co. is a popular microbrewery with a taproom and beer garden currently offering approximately eight draft beers and delicious food to their loyal patrons. Owner and brewer, Nick Gunderson, prides himself on inventing and creating an ever-evolving lineup of small-batch beer made from fresh ingredients. His favorite beer they offer? Chestnut Hill’s very own west-coast style IPA.

A couple years ago, Nick decided it was time to upgrade his brewing equipment from a 2-barrel to a 5-barrel system with six fermenters and six brite tanks. This decision allowed him to increase the brewery’s monthly output to sixty kegs. First on the list of equipment upgrades was a new industrial-grade custom brewery chiller that could keep up with an increasingly sophisticated brewing process.
