SAN LEANDRO, Calif., April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- PTG Water & Energy (PTG), innovator of onsite power generation technology optimized for craft breweries, has been selected by Twisted Manzanita Ales to provide onsite power and process heat at its primary craft beer production facility in Santee, California. By integrating PTG's system with its production process, Twisted Manzanita will slash its electricity bill by more than 50 percent and its natural gas costs by more than 70 percent. Twisted Manzanita calculates that the PTG system will pay for itself within 3-4 years.
PTG's onsite energy backup offers dependable protection against brownouts and blackouts, and ensures the brewery can keep its systems running and its precious inventory refrigerated. Furthermore, by switching to PTG's modular and scalable combined heat and power technology, Twisted Manzanita benefits from the availability of thousands of gallons of hot water for free.
This substantially reduces the operating costs associated with running Twisted Manzanita's existing boilers, and delivers additional cost savings at key steps throughout the brewing process. Looking ahead, another attractive benefit is the elimination of future boiler purchases, which will preserve valuable capital.
"We're obsessed with quality and attention to every detail. By controlling operating costs and isolating ourselves from electricity, power and water price increases, we're in a much better position to deliver an excellent product and invest in our growth," said Jeff Trevaskis, CEO of Twisted Manzanita. "PTG's onsite power generation technology will be a critical part of our roadmap for expansion."
"It's an honor to work with Jeff and his team of innovators, and help them apply our breakthrough technology to reduce costs, manage growth, and go big," said Greg Ryan, CEO and co-founder of PTG. "Our systems have been custom-engineered for the unique needs of craft brewers such as Twisted Manzanita, and we're thrilled to be working with such a forward-thinking team."
PTG Water & Energy: the only modular and scalable CHP system optimized for craft breweries
The craft brewing industry is experiencing tremendous growth, led by craft brewers such as Twisted Manzanita. The Brewers Association, the trade association that represents small and independent American craft brewers, recently released 2013 data on U.S. craft brewing growth. As a primary driver of growth in the beer industry, craft brewers saw an 18 percent rise in volume, representing a total of 15.6 million barrels, and a 20 percent increase in retail dollar value.
Controlling energy and water costs while creating the highest-quality beer is crucial for the nation's craft brewers. PTG's optimized systems can reduce electricity and heating costs in breweries by more than 50 percent. The systems also offer the additional advantage of treating wastewater and reducing sewer charges, which enables water to be recycled to reduce freshwater costs. PTG's wastewater treatment systems are sustainable and non-toxic, and require no chemicals. All of PTG's systems are easy to integrate into existing brewing processes.
About Twisted Manzanita Ales
Twisted Manzanita Ales was built on the idea that great beer is crafted with both passion and creativity. In 2010, Manzanita opened its doors with a three-barrel brew house, however in a little more than a year, we began construction on our much larger facility. We recognize that craft brewing is an art that requires tremendous attention to detail and extensive involvement from our brewers in every aspect of the process. In response to that need, we have created a space for our brewers to think outside the box and use new and interesting ingredients sourced both locally and internationally. This is the driving force behind Twisted Manzanita's ability to deliver products of the highest caliber. Visit TwistedManzanita.com for more information and all the latest news.

DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
