The ‘green’ issue, in terms of sustainability and environmentally friendly products/services, is at the forefront of the political and public agenda. Therefore, bars up and down the country are increasingly looking at ways to improve their green credentials, particularly in making processes and products eco-friendly.
The leisure, hospitality and bar industries have quite an effect on the environment because they are such a large part of the British culture, with even the smallest of villages having at least one pub within walking distance.
Behind the bar, there are several new products and innovations on the market which can help to reduce energy consumption, whilst reducing capital costs at the same time.
For example, 2Flow is a coolant liquid designed to freeze at sub-zero temperatures. It replaces water and glycol in existing and ice bank beer and soft drinks coolers, providing ‘extra cold’ beverages without the need for purchasing extra equipment. It’s a stable, non-corrosive liquid which also saves energy costs as it has superior thermal properties so it can be as much as 20% more effective than other sub-zero cooling solutions. For the average pub running 2 coolers, they would save up to £226 per year on energy costs by using 2Flow.
Cooltube is a heat exchanger that is over 6 times smaller and lighter than standard heat exchangers which is compatible with any coolant medium and fits into confined spaces, including directly under the font. It provides maximum efficiency in a minimum space, resulting in energy efficiencies and a lower carbon footprint.
Other products that can help bars to become more environmentally friendly are cleaning products, such SteriBev and SteriEx solutions which have no COSHH or environmental impact.
In supporting bars that go the extra mile to reduce their carbon footprint, it’s a great way to encourage more businesses to find out how they can ‘go green’ too.

We are delighted to report an increase in the number of outlets purchasing our bespoke bar solutions.
We can personalise the fonts by having a company’s logo etched or printed onto them and the option of various finishes, which adds to the overall interior design.
Many outlets are opting for such bespoke looks as part of their refurbishment schemes. The quieter period in January after the festive season proves a popular time of year for such outlets to carry out improvements.
Brewfitt’s Managing Director, Curtis Paxman said: “We believe that the industry is planning ahead and after a busy and successful Christmas period, many bars will then take advantage of the quieter period. The trend for bespoke dispense equipment shows that outlets are very much trying to create their own unique environments to attract customers.”
From 18th – 20th October, we will be attending the International Brewing Convention held at Manchester Central. You can find us on stand C7!
The three day conference programme includes an exhibition of industry suppliers which encompasses the entire supply chain. We have secured a stand at the exhibition which we will use as a chance to display 2Flow, CoolTube and our different fonts. The convention will provide us with an invaluable opportunity to exchange ideas with over 60 delegates and exhibitors which will help us to develop successful business strategies for the future.
CoolTube is one of our latest innovations. It’s a revolutionary new hear exchanger that employs leading edge fluid dynamic technology to give maximum efficiency in a minimum space. It is over 6 times smaller and lighter than a standard remote cooling pod.
So, if you’re interested in any of our products or want to know more about us then feel free to come and visit us on our stand where we will be happy to provide you with more information.
