Pubs that use Heineken’s SmartDispense system have helped to save 100m pints of water and 360 tonnes of keg CO2 over the past six years, the brewer has said.
‘Energy bills are a sizeable outgoing for pubs, so identifying savings can be hugely beneficial,’ the brewer said. ‘No punter orders a warm pint, but cellar cooling can be a significant contributor to a pub’s carbon footprint.’
The SmartDispense system also cuts down on line cleaning.
Club owner, Alan Nelson of Newton Aycliffe Working Men’s Club said: ‘Complaints around the quality of our pints used to be a daily issue. So, we decided to completely change our offering and install SmartDispense. Members now comment on the quality, and we’ve seen a 50% sales increase in the past two years.’
