Beer decanting

Beer Decanting

Disposing of large quantities of beer from kegs in a safe manner presents various practical problems, firstly, kegs must be drained using a safe dispense system to remove the gas (CO2/N2/Mixed Gas) and, secondly, if the disposal involves the municipal sewers this needs to be arranged and approved in advance with the local authorities whilst also obeying local environmental laws; due in part to the oxygen it takes out of local water courses and also at the filtration plant.

THIELMANN can help your business reclaim taxes with the safe, secure and sustainable emptying and disposal of ullage (unsaleable beer) in accordance with local environmental laws with our Decanting Service.

Our service includes:

  • Safe emptying of kegs with the appropriate decanting units designed specifically to remove gas (CO2/N2/Mixed Gas)
  • Complete and proper emptying of kegs
  • If required, the secure and sustainable disposal of excess beer, in accordance with local environmental laws

THIELMANN’s Beer Decanting Service removes these obstacles and ensures the safe and secure emptying of your kegs, in a sustainable manner, and if required, the disposal of the excess beer in accordance with local legislation.

Our many years of expertise in the beverage industry and versatility render us the preferred partner of choice for the secure and sustainable disposal of your excess beer.
