It’s officially fall, and pumpkin lovers around the country are uniting to enjoy the best that autumn has to offer. This includes craft beer trends as well, which never fail to offer unique and exciting autumn flavors to enjoy. Consider these options next time you’re browsing the shelves or placing an order at your local brew pub. What Makes Seasonal Beer Different?Anybody who is familiar with craft beer doesn’t need to be told that no two beers are the same. This is especially true about seasonal beers, which are defined by their intensity, flavor, and unique ingredients. Unlike winter beers, which are dark and complex, and summer beers, which are light and refreshing, autumn beers fall right in between. They include seasonal ingredients that can only be found locally during the fall, and they pair perfectly with common seasonal dishes (pumpkin pie, anyone?). Common Autumn TrendsThanks to the popularity of autumnal spices, fall beers were many of the first to gain popularity as seasonal brews. Since fall is widely seen as a time to cool down and prepare for the holiday season, fall beers tend to be a bit heavier than their summer counterparts. As most autumn-inspired food, pumpkin can always be counted on to make an appearance in seasonal beers. Nutmeg, allspice, and cinnamon are favorite ingredients for these brews. Maple, amber, and belgium beers are also gaining prominence as customers search for pumpkin alternatives. A Few Fan FavoritesEvery city across America can enjoy seasonal craft beers from local breweries, but these specific choices have captured national attention. Bell’s Best Brown Ale, from Michigan-based brewery Bell’s, offers a rich, nutty, malty flavor with caramel, coffee, and cocoa ingredients. What isn’t autumnal about that!? Harpoon Brewery’s Flannel Friday, on the other hand, is a malty amber ale that uses hints of citrus and pine to give you a totally unique experience around the campfire this fall. If you’re a Blue Moon fan, you might enjoy the Harvest Pumpkin Wheat Ale that’s been a favorite since it was introduced in 1995 as a savory yet refreshing ale.
"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.
