CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cornelius, Inc., the leading global producer of beverage dispensing systems, and Sustainable Beverage Technologies (“SBT”), a Colorado-based developer of concentrated beer technologies, are proud to announce a new strategic partnership offering concentrated beer dispensing solutions to beverage brand owners and foodservice retailers worldwide.
SBT provides an environmentally advantageous solution for delivering high-quality beer to conventional and emerging markets. Using only traditional brewing ingredients (water, malt, hops, and yeast), SBT’s patented BrewVo technology utilizes a unique process called “Nested Fermentation”, in which brewers manage the fermentation environment where a highly concentrated beer is produced. When the beer concentrate is later mixed with carbonated water, the result compares to any premium beer on the market. Founded in 2008, SBT was launched with the initial goal of providing backcountry travelers a portable means for enjoying a beer while on adventures. Partnering with Cornelius, SBT can now dispense its premium beverages to consumers globally. Pat Tatera, CEO and founder of SBT, said: “By combining our concentrates with Cornelius’ dispensing technologies, we will deliver the same efficiencies to the brewing industry that Coke and Pepsi have benefited from in the soda industry for decades. That model speaks for itself. This is the future of beer.” For more information on SBT you may visit their website at www.sbevs.com.
Cornelius will be the exclusive provider of equipment to dispense the concentrated beer provided by SBT. Using Cornelius’ technology, the dispenser will utilize a state-of-the-art water filtration system that will mix carbonated water with the beer concentrate to provide the end user with a premium beverage. This solution will significantly reduce beer related space requirements within bars and restaurants creating an easy install for owners.
“The combo of SBT and Cornelius will bring an economically friendly product to retailers who want to reduce their carbon footprint and shipping costs. The technology provides for a more sustainable future,” said Jeff Garascia, VP of Growth & Innovation for Cornelius.
