Refined Fool Brewing Co. (RFB) is microbrewery in Sarnia, Lambton. RFB has two locations in Sarnia, both offering a taproom, retail store and restaurant. The two tap rooms produce 24,000 L per month and have a 245-person capacity combined. Their beer is also distributed throughout Ontario via the LCBO, Beer Stores, and numerous restaurants around Sarnia-Lambton and the surrounding region.
RFB is looking to develop a clean in place (CIP)system for their downtown London Road brewery location to increase safety and production volumes. CBARN has partnered with RFB to undertake the design and development of this system. The teams will work together to define the necessary processes and requirements of the system and design a system that works with RFB’s current production set up.
Development and assembly of a CIP system will save RFB time and money cleaning their equipment between batches allowing for more profitable and increased production. Success of this project will allow RFB to hire additional staff to increase production and service of their beer and secure existing positions at the plant.
