Retailers play a critical role in preserving flavor and aroma in beer. Great beer in a beer drinker’s glass is no accident—it must be handled with care at retail. Draught Beer Quality for Retailers is intended to help retailers consistently pour great beer. Calidad de la Cerveza de Barril para Comerciantes Minoristas will help Spanish-speaking draught beer retailers preserve both profits and beer’s flavor by utilizing industry accepted best practices.
Calidad de la Cerveza de Barril para Comerciantes Minoristas contains standard units of measurement (rather than metric units) to reflect the common equipment and technology in use in North America. Spanish-speaking countries in Central and South America more commonly use draught equipment manufactured in Europe, which utilizes metric units. When working with metric sized equipment, this difference needs to be taken into consideration when sizing equipment and calculating resistance and applied pressure.
