History of the Grundy Tank
Grundy Tanks by definition are based on large tanks that were used in UK pub cellars in the 1950’s and 1960’s to directly dispense beer from the cellar. They were mass produced for use during different parts of the brewing operation.
The Grundy Tank Today
The North American craft brewing industry adopted the term “Grundy Tank”. Since the 1980’s Grundy tanks have been a part of the American craft brewing industry. Grundy Tanks are used by beer brewers for storage, conditioning, fermentation and other stages of beer brewing, some even as serving tanks or storage tanks.
