Cornelius, SBT Provide Concentrated Beer Dispensing

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cornelius, Inc., the leading global producer of beverage dispensing
systems, and Sustainable Beverage Technologies (“SBT”), a Colorado-based
developer of concentrated beer technologies, are proud to announce a new
strategic partnership offering concentrated beer dispensing solutions to
beverage brand owners and foodservice retailers worldwide.

SBT provides an environmentally advantageous solution for delivering
high-quality beer to conventional and emerging markets. Using only
traditional brewing ingredients (water, malt, hops, and yeast), SBT’s
patented BrewVo technology utilizes a unique process called “Nested
Fermentation”, in which brewers manage the fermentation environment
where a highly concentrated beer is produced. When the beer concentrate
is later mixed with carbonated water, the result compares to any premium
beer on the market. Founded in 2008, SBT was launched with the initial
goal of providing backcountry travelers a portable means for enjoying a
beer while on adventures. Partnering with Cornelius, SBT can now
dispense its premium beverages to consumers globally. Pat Tatera, CEO
and founder of SBT, said: “By combining our concentrates with Cornelius’
dispensing technologies, we will deliver the same efficiencies to the
brewing industry that Coke and Pepsi have benefited from in the soda
industry for decades. That model speaks for itself. This is the future
of beer.” For more information on SBT you may visit their website at

Cornelius will be the exclusive provider of equipment to dispense the
concentrated beer provided by SBT. Using Cornelius’ technology, the
dispenser will utilize a state-of-the-art water filtration system that
will mix carbonated water with the beer concentrate to provide the end
user with a premium beverage. This solution will significantly reduce
beer related space requirements within bars and restaurants creating an
easy install for owners.

“The combo of SBT and Cornelius will bring an economically friendly
product to retailers who want to reduce their carbon footprint and
shipping costs. The technology provides for a more sustainable future,”
said Jeff Garascia, VP of Growth & Innovation for Cornelius.

Cornelius, Inc., a Marmon/Berkshire Hathaway company, is a worldwide
leader in the design and production of dispensing equipment for soft
drinks, juice, beer, water, ice, and frozen beverages. Founded in 1931,
Cornelius continues to be an industry innovator for beverages such as
craft beer which continues to grow rapidly in consumer popularity. For
