Utilities Monitoring at New Belgium Brewing

Once tracked 100% by hand, vital stats such as temperature and pressure measurements were difficult to gather, hard to support and not easily analyzed. But not anymore.

Today, New Belgium Brewery’s system employs Wonderware Historian software to collect and store real-time and historical production data. Plus Wonderware InTouch Human Machine Interface (HMI) software with its intuitive graphical interface makes running the plant easier than ever before.

Beer brewing is an energy-intensive process, and with the Wonderware solution, energy conservation has improved too. Steam, water and electricity consumption is monitored continuously. The plant’s lighting system is automated; when no one is present, light sensors automatically dim the lights or turn off unneeded banks of lights.
