GET YOURSELF AN ALL-NEW, HEALTHY 6-PACK

NicheSolutions’ recycled cardboard can holders are 100% eco-friendly…

It’s such a simple, must-have development for the brewing industry, it seems incredible no one has had the idea before.

As part of their ongoing eco-drive, NicheSolutions are now producing the UK’s first completely eco-friendly 6- and 4-pack can holders, which fit both 500cl and 330cl cans. They’re made from 100% recycled material, and in turn the cardboard used is 100% biodegradable.

Whether you’re a brewer producing cans of beer or a consumer drinking them, it surely makes sense to stop using plastic can holders. Why add needlessly to the planet’s mounting plastic waste problem, and create a long-term threat to the environment, to birds and sealife?

Even beyond the problem of landfill sites and oceans filling up with plastic, the regular plastic 6-pack holders pose an extra hazard to birds and animals. That’s why many consumers now snip them with scissors before disposal.

They’re all problems that are easily and cheaply avoided thanks to NicheSolutions’ new Nc6 and Nc4 eco-friendly can holders.

BREWERY SAFETY AND HYGIENE DRIVE GOES EUROPEAN – ROCK CITY BEERS

Thanks to Brewers’ Ocean, our sister company in the Netherlands, it’s great to see our drive for brewery safety and hygiene spreading into Europe.

MD Paul recently enjoyed a visit to Rock City Beers in Amersfoort. Not only did we get to meet head brewer Koen, but also enjoyed a tour of the impressive brewery – and a sample of some of the great beers in a rich and varied range.

It’s exciting to see our range of hygiene products and colour-coded safety pumps taking off in the Netherlands, where Rock City were among the first breweries to ask about these great safety products.

We’ll be back in Amersfoort soon, returning to install a state-of-art foaming machine for cleaning the floors… and then hoping to spend some more time relaxing in the company of more Rock City Beers!

LBA FEST SUCCESS – NOW LOOKING FORWARD TO LONDON CRAFT BEER FEST, 3/4 AUG!

The recent London Brewers’ Alliance festival was a brilliant event held at Fuller’s Brewery in Chiswick. It was a pleasure for NicheSolutions GB to sponsor Brixton Brewery – just one of countless great breweries presenting so many great brews to choose from. From traditional ales to new and funky fresh brews, they were all represented at the LBA.

Now our festival focus moves forward to the London Craft Beer Festival at Tobacco Dock on 3 and 4 August. This is shaping up to be a fantastic event, with 65 breweries in attendance, 260 beers available, and around 10,000 beer aficionados expected to attend!

We’re looking forward to welcoming Sander from our Dutch sister company, Brewers’ Ocean, along with some great brews from the Netherlands as Oedipus Brewing and Brouwerij Kees are attending the event.

We’ll be meeting up with lots of friends in Docklands, and hopefully making some new ones – great to see the list of brewers includes Wiper and True, The Wild Beer Co., Weird Beard Brew Co. and Signature Brew. Happy Days!

HOP STUFF – ONE TO LOOK OUT FOR!

Last week, we dropped by a new customer – Hop Stuff Brewery in Greenwich – as an after-sales check to make sure head brewer Guillermo was happy and up to speed with all our hygiene and cleaning detergents.

What a fantastic, modern brewery ‘G’ and the Hopstuff team have created, all cleverly financed by crowdfunding – and set to be fully up and running in the next few weeks.

We were totally impressed by the set-up, and by the first samples of Hopstuff’s range of brews – cool cans of Arsenal Pale Ale, Renegade IPA and Unfiltered Pils, to name but three.

Without doubt, Hopstuff is one to look out for! Drop by the new SE18 and SE8 taprooms and give them a go in Woolwich and Deptford.

BE LIKE MONDO! SWITCH TO NICHE FOR BREWERY HYGIENE, VALUE & SAFETY

“Thanks for coming down yesterday, we all found it very valuable and are putting your recommendations into play as we speak.” – Tom, Mondo Brewing Co.

Mondo Brewing Co. in Battersea is one of many UK breweries that have recently made the switch to NicheSolutions’ premium, low-cost cleaning & hygiene products – saving themselves time, effort and money.

Here at Niche, we don’t just sell you products such as Causgleam Plus (caustic, for brewhouse cleaning in place), Hypoquest (chlorine and caustic based, for fermenting vessels and conditioning tanks) and Percid 5 (peracetic acid-based rinse). We’re always here to help, answering any questions you may have on usage, safety and economy.

To reap the maximum benefit and full value of our after-sales service, why not do like Mondo and arrange for our micriobiologist Paul Browning to run a chemicals training day? 

Alternatively, Paul can make a site visit to help you to clean efficiently and to hit higher standards, to check spray heads and for biofilm, to rethink rinse times and legacy practices. This can help towards your official SALSA accreditation.

GREAT BEERS BREWED WITH TRENT FERMO-ALE YEAST: MOONSHINE BREWERY

At Cambridge’s Moonshine Brewery, head brewer Mark uses our Trent Fermo-Ale Yeast in three of his top brews.

Award-winning Night Watch porter uses five types of malts, four varieties of hops and locally produced honey along with Trent Fermo-Ale Yeast to produce a rounded sweet-starting, dry-finishing old-style porter. Black Hole is a full bodied stout with a complex malt profile. The roasted flavours are rich, smooth and long-lasting. And Centennial is a superb single-hopped ale.

Mark recommends premium Trent Fermo-Ale Yeast – “It goes off like a good ‘un,” he says – and is impossible to tell apart from popular strains of yeast which can cost twice as much.

Why not give our premium Trent Fermo-Ale, AY4 and AY5 yeasts a go? Just ask for a free sample when you’re making your next order.

GREAT BEERS BREWED WITH PREMIUM AY4/5 YEAST: UPHAM PUNTER & TIPSTER

At Upham Brewery, on the South Downs near Winchester, head brewer Robert Dupre uses premium AY4 yeast to brew his hugely popular core beers, Punter and Tipster.

“I’m using it,” says Rob, “and I love it.”

Punter is a light amber best bitter with a sweet, floral hop aroma. The flavour is a perfect balance of malt and fruitiness, while the light golden bitter Tipster is dry hopped and has more citrus notes.

Ever more brewers are switching to our premium AY4, AY5 and Trent Ale Yeast, which are impossible to tell apart from other premium strains which cost up to twice as much.

Why not ask for a free sample when you place your next order?
