Beer line cleaning is a key skill for all bar managers looking to maintain the quality of the beer they serve – and quality beer keeps customers happy, profits up and doors open.
Traditionally, beer line cleaning has been undertaken on a weekly basis to ensure that the flavour, clarity and pour of beers and ciders is at its best. Stretching the time between cleans creates an environment within the beer line that promotes the growth of proteins, yeast clumps and other biological deposits that make the beer taste ‘off’.
Many bar managers view the weekly beer line cleaning process as a chore – it takes time, requires them to use harsh chemicals and involves throwing away perfectly drinkable (and sell-able) beer.
Bar managers are caught between a rock and a hard place. On the one hand, they want to keep their products fresh and develop their trade based on a reputation for serving good beers – so regular weekly beer line cleans are viewed as essential. On the other hand, beer line cleaning is a drain on profits; wasting beer and increasing costs.
