As craft beer continues to make its mark on local economies and national markets, cities like Salt Lake City have experienced the exhilarating proliferation of brewpubs and breweries throughout the area. This led Mayor Jackie Biskupski to declare April as “Craft Beer Month.” In front of a special gathering of the Utah Brewers Guild, Mayor Biskupski said, “Salt Lake City’s brewpubs and breweries have been a favorite of locals but also lets tourists know the world is welcome here. April is a great time to acknowledge these establishments for what they bring to the City’s economy and eclecticism.” Indeed, Salt Lake City alone has 15 brew ups and breweries, a growth of 500 percent over the past two decades! That is a major portion of the state’s total of 23 craft breweries. The growth of Utah’s beer industry as a whole has risen to 3.2 percent, even though the state has some of the strictest liquor laws in the country. Breweries and bars in Utah can only serve on-tap beer that is equal to or below 4 percent alcohol by volume. All higher-alcohol beers must be served in bottles. If those restrictions would loosen, imagine the growth that Utah would experience! Mayor Biskupski isn’t the only one eager to draw attention to the soaring success of the craft brewing industry. The Brewers Association also declared American Craft Beer Week to be held on May 14-20, 2018. According to the BA, this is a “week-long coordinated effort timed before the busy summer bear season. This week has become the largest national effort focusing on American craft beer.” April is also North Carolina Beer Month. The Tar Heel state claims more than 250 breweries within its borders, and more than 50 events are scheduled throughout Beer Month to help visitors and locals alike explore the brewers around them and explore new craft beer innovations.
"This Machine Makes Me Money."
A statement echoed by our customers throughout our long manufacturing history. But it's not some abstract concept. It's a reality that we've worked hard to establish and maintain.
We view ourselves as your business partner and continuously work to support your profitability in a number of ways:
Scalable. Our fillers can grow as you do. With 2, 4 and 6 head options, Meheen fillers are designed to meet your specific production needs. Multiple fillers can be seamlessly integrated to further increase production, while protecting you against the downtime risk associated with having a single, large filler.
Compact. Facility space is limited. At only 20 square feet, our filler's small footprint and mobility allow you ultimate flexibility. Customize your machine with interchangeable rolling casters or stationary feet.
Reliable. Pneumatically powered, so no motors, gears or bearings to maintain. Don't let large rotary mechanisms arrest your production or siphon your profits toward maintenance costs.
Efficient. Our Long Tube Counter Pressure Fillers and lack of pressure bowl limit product waste in the bottling process. Rotary fillers may lose two pressure bowl volumes per use or more! Meheen machines are designed to get your product into bottles versus onto the floor.
Consistent. The touch screen technology and production control software contained in our fillers and Tank Managers provide you with unmatched control throughout the bottling process. As a result, your customers get what they paid for and come back for more.
