Kursk’s first brewhouse was a Czech one, dimensioned to produce 30 hectoliters per batch. Kursk started with six brews per day and then added equipment to produce ten brews per day. The brewery utilized only 5 percent of its capacity that first year. Demand for beer grew, sales increased rapidly. Just three years later, the brewery was operating at maximum capacity, in part because its distribution area had been permanently expanded. The company owners, who were sales experts, and their team had done an excellent job.
Now they had to think about how to produce even more beer. So, they spoke with several brewing equipment manufacturers. After the company’s president Natalia Portalimova had looked at a few reference projects in Bavarian breweries, she had made her choice: “Of all the vendors out there, Krones did the best job of convincing us that they could deliver 21st century brewing technology and expertise and excellent support at all times. Their people really know what they are doing.”
Of all the vendors out there, Krones was the most convincing. Natalia PortalimovaPresident of Kursk Brewery
