      Beer recipes are becoming increasingly more complex, individual and unusual. Yet even the most minor change to the ingredients must be well considered and thoroughly tested. And it is precisely for this reason that Krones now has an in-house pilot brewery: the Steinecker Brew Center provides both breweries all over the world and Krones itself with the opportunity to perform trials together and to test new technologies.
