We build our panels and jumpers using only stainless steel and Gen-X barrier line. Chrome plated brass is much cheaper but chrome peels away over time exposing your beer to pitted brass. This leads to flavor taints and more foamy pours, which means money literally down the drain.
If you have any suggestions on what we can improve or things you would like to see us add don’t hesitate to contact us.
In our goal to support and promote education and a raising of industry standards we proudly support the Cicerone Certification Program®, the Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP), and the Brewers Association Draught Beer Quality Manual. Leaders Beverage is not affiliated with any of these programs. However, Drew was the Eastern Regional Exam manager for the Cicerone Certification Program®.
