Pittsburgh invests in new brewery featuring GEA technology

GEA began installation of Pittsburgh Brewing’s new brewery in August 2021 and handed it over to the customer one year later

Pittsburgh Brewing Company in Pennsylvania, US, returns to brewing its popular beers independently. For this purpose, it has invested in a new brewery featuring GEA technology. As a greenfield project, GEA’s brewing experts designed and developed the complete process chain, from brewhouse to cold area and bottling. 

The new brewery is fully equipped with GEA machines and components. These include the GEA COMPACT-STAR craft brewhouse with five vessels, the GEA MILLSTAR wet grist mill, a GEA WORTSTAR for wort aeration, a yeast propagation unit, the GEA Plug & Win craft centrifuge and other equipment for cleaning and pasteurization, blending, carbonation and bottling.

To ensure a reasonable expansion of its portfolio and annual output, German firm GEA also prepared capacity planning for Pittsburgh Brewing that avoids supply peaks and forms the basis for lower water consumption in production.

Pittsburgh Brewing also opted for a multifunctional filling unit: The combined rinser-filler-capper block GEA Visitron ALL-IN-ONE allows for maximum flexibility and reliability in the production of small and medium volumes.

Pale lager beers need to be filtered to achieve a longer shelf life and the desired clear, lustrous appearance. As a sustainable alternative to common diatomaceous earth filtration and cross-flow filtration with polymer membranes, Pittsburgh Brewing has invested in the GEA clearamic BeerFiltration solution.
