How Draft Cider Operating Systems Stay Cool

It’s awful to sit down for a nice, relaxing glass of cider and get a lukewarm drink. Many older kegerators and refrigeration units cannot produce appropriately cold draft cider. Not only that, but many older towers can’t deliver the consistent carbonated kick that’s required for a memorable, crisp cider. Customers who don’t enjoy their drink are not likely to try another one or come back to your establishment, so it’s important to have quality products to dispense your draft cider.

Our new kegerators and the air- and glycol-cooling product lines provide enough power to ensure the drinks stay cool. Cool, crisp ciders keep customers happy and solidify your reputation for outstanding cider. A lot of components work together to keep the cider at the appropriate temperature.

The three types of towers most enthusiasts and restaurateurs favor are the kegerator, the long-draw glycol-cooled system, and the long-draw air-cooled system. The kegerator is kept near the drinks, so it is ideal for smaller spaces. The other two products allow producers to store cider elsewhere and bring it to the tap. The long-draw systems are either cooled by glycol or cold air that’s blown through the system.

Bars, restaurants, brewpubs, and personal clients who partner with us always see high yields, low waste, and drinks that taste fantastic. Having a great draft system that reliably produces a cold, delicious cider will keep customers coming back, boosting your bottom line.

How to Maintain a Cider Draft Line

One factor that’s key to keeping cider on draft involves maintaining the cleanliness of the machines. Our technicians are trained in the latest draft line cleaning technology. We offer the recommended bi-weekly, quarterly, and annual cleaning services in the Portland area. Our company is local and family-owned, so we are happy to help you maintain your equipment and build a reputation among Portland breweries and brewpubs.

Customizing a Cider Draft System

One of our latest developments is the chance for those who partner with us not only to experience the benefit of owning premium beverage dispensing equipment but opportunities for customized branding. There are several ways to incorporate personal design into our pouring systems, which vary from customizing the towers to branding your system with your establishment’s logo. Northwest Draft Technicians can use the latest laser-cutting technology to help our brewers customize their systems.
