Today's breweries have to adapt to a changing market that is also being served by an increasing number of new providers. To survive and succeed, breweries need to expand their portfolios both cost-efficiently and in line with the highest quality standards. Digitalization plays a key role in this process. It gives them the tools to be able to respond quickly, flexibly and cost-efficiently to current market demands, with no loss of quality. Digitalization makes the flood of data in breweries transparent and easy to follow: from stock receipt to shipping, from the brewing vat to management, and from product development to the glass.
Learn why Constellation Brands, maker of 25 million hectoliters of beer for the US annually, chose to upgrade its automation processes with Siemens to triple capacity at one of its North American plants.
Find out more about the specific solutions from Siemens for breweries and the major benefits offered by digitalization.
The Digital Enterprise enables manufacturing companies to streamline and digitalize their entire business process, seamlessly integrating suppliers into the mix. They can begin at any point of their value chain, from product design to service, and can extend digitalization gradually, depending on their current needs.

Many of our products and solutions are already being successfully used in the brewing and distilling industries. Below is a selection of these applications.
Wayne Automation was a long-time Rockwell customer using Siemens parts for the first time.
The OEM successfully implemented a 1,000-case-per minute packaging solution for one of the world’s largest breweries.
The project required nearly 60 packaging machines comprised of about 20 sets of three different machine types.
Tallgrass Brewing’s manual production process could not meet demand or ensure a consistent product.
OEM Custom Metalcraft implemented Siemens BRAUMAT with the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system.
Tallgrass Brewing now has a precise way to brew customized beer formulas.
Two Roads Brewing Company markets 10 different types of beer.
The brewery also manufactures 40 different beers for other breweries experiencing production bottlenecks.
Installing BRAUMAT allowed Two Roads to exceed its growth plan at an early stage and consider expansion.
