Essentials for your bar this summer

Make sure you have everything you need for your bar this summer with our checklist!

1  Outdoor bar
Ensuring the outdoor bar is ready for the summer rush is one of the most important parts! If you are looking to update your outdoor bar, make sure you check out our Lindr Mobile Dispense machines for your beer, cider, wine or cocktails. They are a flexible way to add service capacity and there are a variety of models available. Email enquiries@clearbrew.co.uk for help selecting the model that best suits you.

2  Dishwashers, glasswashers & ice machines
During the busy summer season, it is crucial to ensure any commercial appliances are functioning efficiently. If your dishwasher, glasswasher or ice machine needs updating, it is a good idea to do this before the busy season commences. Our DC Products are perfect for any venue looking for efficient and reliable warewashing equipment. Email enquiries@clearbrew.co.uk for help selecting the model that best suits you.

3  Bar hygiene
Paying attention to bar hygiene will help ensure perfect pints are poured. One area that is often neglected of any beer dispense system is the nozzles. Most venues soak these in soda water overnight which does not have any cleaning effect and emulsifies the yeast to the nozzle. Our Sparkler Cleaning Kit effectively and safely cleans font nozzles, sparklers, creamers and fixed nozzles, helping you maintain the perfect serve.

4  Cellar cleanliness
Cellar hygiene is an important part of maintaining beer quality. So, what can be done to sustain the ideal cellar environment? Basic cellar hygiene starts with cleaning spillages, drains, walls and ceilings. Our Cellar Floor & Wall Cleaner is a liquid alkali heavy detergent which is particularly effective for the rapid removal of all types of organic soiling. It is also important to remove any yeast that builds up on a keg coupler. This can easily be achieved with Cellar Hygiene Spray and a Keg Coupler Brush.

5  Taking care of glassware
Glass hygiene is crucial when it comes to serving beer. If glasses are not maintained correctly, beer can be flat or have an excessive head (fobbing). Using a quality glasswash and glass pre-treatment product can all help to ensure glassware is kept in top condition. Our Complete Glasswash Detergent ensures glasses are always pristine without the need to Renovate separately. We also supply Quash Glass Pre-Treatment System which removes grease marks and lipstick from the lip area of glassware. Using these products will help to maintain the quality of both the glasses and beer served.
