Dogfish Head Craft Brewery Video Case Study

When Dogfish Head Craft Brewery noticed that the older system they were running on was starting to fail and wouldn’t allow the implementation of new equipment, Liz Stairs, their Process Improvement Specialist, began to investigate ways to improve the overall automation support of the operation. They first turned to ProLeit after a lot of due diligence, and then learned that to achieve the required operational simplicity and continuous availability they needed to build their infrastructure using the Stratus ftServer System. If their operation were to go down for a long period of time they would lose an entire batch of beer, resulting in unfulfilled orders, backlogs and loss of revenue. Today they distribute to all 50 states and produce over 250,000 barrels annually and they are still growing, so Stratus and ProLeit had to be a part of their future plans.
