BRAUBEVIALE 2018: HANDTMANN ARMATURENFABRIK PRESENTS HER BEST SIDE IN NUREMBERG

Great attendance at the Handtmann stand on all three trade fair days – visitors from all over the world

It’s that time of year again: between 13 and 15 November the popular and world-leading BrauBeviale trade fair for the beverage and liquid food industry took place at the exhibition site in Nuremberg. And of course Handtmann Armaturenfabrik took part as an exhibitor at the fair.

Once again the exhibition stand design was impressive

Back at last year’s drinktec fair in Munich, Handtmann Armaturenfabrik presented its newly designed exhibition stand, styled as a comfy and sociable pub. In view of the large number of positive comments on the design, it was decided to retain the look this year at the BrauBeviale, ensuring we stood out visually from the other trade fair stands. From the furniture to the décor, everything was selected to fit with the craft beer theme. In the lounge area, this year’s visitors were once again able to enjoy a cool craft beer from one of the top US breweries, as well as plenty of other German and international beer specialities. Just like at drinktec, in Nuremberg there was an “Allagash White” on-tap bar from our customer the Allagash Brewing Company from the USA. The beer was a huge hit with trade fair visitors!

Representing international breweries

Along with top reference customers from the USA and Canada, such as Karbach, Firestone and Okanagan Spring, there were quite a few Russian breweries in attendance, who were keen to enquire about the products and services offered by Handtmann Armaturenfabrik. A particular highlight this year were the Polaroid photos snapped with customers and hung on photo grids – a wonderful memory which won’t be forgotten.

Strong demand for beer stabilisation and yeast management

Visitors to the Handtmann Armaturenfabrik stand were excited about the systems and components on show. Particular mention should go to a prefabricated perimeter piping system, a tank dome cap with valves in different designs and also a hop to the top tank. Some visitors were especially interested in the content on beer stabilisation, brine filtration and the Handtmann products for yeast management. Something which is currently much discussed in the media is the issue of “microplastic in beer”, which should be avoided, and this was also a hot topic at the Handtmann stand. Here too Handtmann Armaturenfabrik offers a suitable solution.

Dry hopping and “Hop 2 Top” were significant topics

The “Hop 2 Top” tank on show was quite a sensation again this year. By using the “Hop 2 Top” in conjunction with the Handtmann injector system, brewers can ensure a gentle and continuous supply of hop pellets into the fermentation tank. Staff at the stand provided visitors with information about this popular product in the dry hopping area. Initial specific offers for yeast management and for the components area were sent out to interested parties so that they can now follow up on this information. The Handtmann Armaturenfabrik was absolutely delighted with attendance during the trade fair. Lots of very interesting and valuable conversations were had, giving an overall positive outcome from the three-day fair. The next BrauBeviale in Nuremberg will take place from 12 to 14 November 2019.
