Sierra Nevada Brewing Company applies UV-C technology in brewing process

Aug. 13, 2014

ERLANGER, Ky. — The brewing company employs UV-C technology to enhance the beer’s quality.

ERLANGER, Ky. — The Sierra Nevada Brewing Company in Chico, Calif., utilizes Aquionics' UV technology, UV-C, to secure an optimal and consistent taste of its beer.

UV-C, part of the UV spectrum, is highly effective at breaking down undesirable byproducts from the water purification process.

“The taste of our beer is a key selling point,” says Sierra Plant Services Supervisor Aaron Porter. “Water is the main ingredient of beer and, even though we have a great water source, by law it needs to be chlorinated prior to use. That’s where the Aquionics UV technology plays its part — UV has proved to be highly effective at destroying any residual chlorine remaining in the process post-treatment. In this way it ensures the consistent taste of our beer.”
