Urban Chestnut Count Orlok Black Pumpkin Ale
Pumpkin beers are everywhere right now. Consumers are trying anything and everything they can get their hands on so why not give them something a little different.
Nosferatu (Bird of Death) aka Count Orlok was THE German Count Dracula. He was a blood-sucking vampire…but being German he must’ve enjoyed beer too, right? Urban Chestnut believes it is so and thus have created a Black Pumpkin Wheat Ale in his honor…a “bier noir” if you will.

How Clean Are Your Draft Lines?
  Without question the easiest way to improve the quality of beer that you serve your customers is consistently cleaning your draft lines. Zink is very proud to adhere to the standard of cleaning our lines every two weeks. We have been asked before about the necessity of this practice and now this standard gets a great article from none other than the Brewer's Association itself. For those who are unaware, the Brewer's Association is the governing body for every brewer, micro or macro, in the country. Take a look at the link below to see why cleaning every two weeks is so important to both the quality of your beer and the maintenance of your system.
