There are now 6,000 U.S. breweries in operation, and 98 percent of those beer companies are considered small and independent, according to a new report released by industry trade group the Brewers Association (BA).
Anheuser-Busch InBev, via its “High End” craft division in the U.S., today announced the launch of a new initiative aimed at “building a better future” for the beer industry.
Called Elevate, the program is A-B’s effort to make its 11 U.S. craft beer and cider brands better stewards of the industry.Read More

The objective of this research has been to evaluate the preservation of commercial beer in THIELMANN kegs and to compare these results with those obtained from the preservation of the same beer in plastic kegs using a system called “bag-in-ball” which consists of an alufoil bat inside a PET vessel.Read More

WEW Container Systems, a Thielmann company, will deliver 167 additional CAMEL low-profile water tank modules to prime contractor Choctaw Defense for integration into the CAMEL II Unit Water Pod System. This system includes the 800 US gallons CAMEL tank integrated into a frame and mounted onto the M1095 trailer. The trailers will either be newly manufactured or refurbished by Choctaw Defense with deliveries to Choctaw Defense having already begun in August 2017, with peak rate production of up to six units per week thereafter.
The extremely low profile system is a key element of the US Army’s primary water distribution system for platoon level and below. WEW delivered the original 327 CAMEL tank units to Choctaw Defense in 2013-14 as part of the US Army’s CAMEL II Unit Water Pod programmr primed by Choctaw Defense. CAMEL has since been fully tested at Aberdeen Proving Ground and elsewhere.
The thin-skinned water tank is insulated and jacketed and equipped with a specially designed internal baffle system to prevent water surge during rugged operations over rough terrain. The highly-engineered tank, which incorporates no less than five patents, has freeze protection. Other variants equipped with generator sets can be integrated with a chiller system to provide temperature controlled water, as well as compact water-treatment for saline and contaminated water sources. The tank itself is capable of sustaining positive pressure and partial vacuum to compensate for diverse operating conditions including during airlift, commensurate with modern multi-modal military logistics operational requirements.
“This follow-on contract is testament to the extremely high standard to which our tanks are engineered, and we are very pleased to be working with prime contractor Choctaw Defense to deliver these further units to the US Army,” Björn Stolz, WEW’s CEO, said. “This work also positions the Thielmann group well as we look to leverage our proven technologies for future US military programmes with excellent partners such as Choctaw Defense. We have a clear focus on innovation as emerging technologies align to create the battlespace of the future.”
