May 2014 - Readykegs for the Andechs Monastery Brewery

A longtime Benedictine brewing tradition, the latest brewing technology and a wide range of beer specialties are trade-marks of the Andechs monastery brewery. Not only in Germany do people enjoy the beer brewed there but also especially in the USA more and more people want to have it as well.

A longtime Benedictine brewing tradition, the latest brewing technology and a wide range of beer specialties are trade-marks of the Andechs monastery brewery. Not only in Germany do people enjoy the beer brewed there but also especially in the USA more and more people want to have it as well. As a consequence the export ratio of the monastery brewery has risen steadily in the last years. At the end of 2013 they received a new substantial export order from the USA for which 1,000 new stainless steel kegs had to be procured immediately. A quick solution had to be found and in Andechs they found out about the “Readykegs“ by Franke Beverage Systems. Those are standard stainless steel kegs in DIN-format (German Industrial Standard) and Euro-format (stackable, each 30 liters and 50 liters), available directly from stock in Kreuztal with a customized top chime embossing as proof of ownership. This way Franke offers an ideal possibility to receive small amounts of individual kegs “just in time”, also in the middle of the season. For the monastery brewery the ready kegs were the solution to a successful implementation of the project in a timely manner. “We are very thankful to Franke for the quick delivery of the kegs. Thus we were able to execute the export order at due date and our customers were happy.” says Georg Filgertshofer, head of logistics at the Andechs monastery brewery.

As a sign of gratitude for the longstanding and cooperative relationship to the monastery brewery they were given a keg seating group by Franke, available since last year. This seating group consists of 4 stools and a table on the basis of 50l DIN-kegs. The table top and the seat cushions are merely screwed into the 14TPI socket. During a joint meeting in the Andechs monastery brewery with Georg Filgertshofer (head of logistics) und Alexander Reiss (operations manager) the keg seating group was handed over personally by Lutz Schott from Franke Beverage Systems in mid-March 2014.
