White Elm Brewing
Kolby Wood
Lincoln, NE

I've been working with ABE for 4 years and absolutely could not be happier. We have worked with a number of suppliers having ABE, JV Northwest and other manufacturers equipment in house. We now buy exclusively from ABE as the price, quality and support is top notch. Our current configuration has us using an ABE brewhouse, cellar tanks, canning line and keg washer. We have always received amazing support form Mark, Michael, Kevin and the rest of the technical/support team.
Industry wide I know of dozens of breweries using ABE equipment and I've never heard a negative word spoke about the quality of product or service. I'm glad we bought from ABE and will continue to as we grow.

Investing in a new brewhouse and cellar can be a nerve racking experience.  The crew at ABE made it easy.  With top notch equipment, competitive pricing and first class customer service we couldn’t be happier.  We have already gone back and ordered a canning line from them.

Caldera, Costa Rica

(Translated by Google) We decided to buy ABE equipment for the high quality of the equipment they manufacture and the excellent customer service they have. There was always transparency regarding the place of manufacture of the BBTs that we bought. The fact of having a team with incredible finishes, 100% functional, and also a personalized customer service, makes it clear that the equipment supplier for our brewery will undoubtedly remain ABE.

Siempre hubo transparencia respecto al lugar de fabricación de los BBTs que compramos. El hecho de tener un equipo con acabados increíbles, 100% funcionales, y además un servicio al cliente personalizado, nos deja claro que el proveedor de equipos para nuestra cervecería sin duda alguna seguirá siendo ABE.

Chicago, IL

I have just combined my pub operations and plant operations into one building and added some more ABE equipment. It was a massive undertaking and could have not been accomplished without the help of the ABE service team. When you buy equipment its not just a price or some impressive machine. Its the people who service the stuff. ABE is terrific in making sure their staff is service orientated and professional. There is no reason to look elsewhere. Thanks ABE again

We have bought both our brewhouse and all of our tanks and controls from ABE. It has been great working with them.

SuperNatural
Chris Hibner
Livonia, MI

SuperNatural uses a 7 barrel brewing system from ABE. We could not be more happy with the equipment as well as the experience.

First, Brad from the sales staff was extremely professional as well as very helpful in fulfilling our needs. We had a few special requests for the system and Brad worked with us to make sure they happened. We had a rather tight brewing space so they were able to shorten our brewhouse a little bit, and then they were able to get us an 8.5 barrel mash tun so we could make those big beers that we like.

Next, the final installation and start-up was easily the best experience I had in the long road to getting our brewery running. Our technician (Mike) was top notch. We got everything running within a few hours and we were brewing test batches the next day. By the time he left, we were confident in the system we had and how to operate it.

Lastly, the beer! One of the complements we always get at SuperNatural is how clean our beers are. That shows the system is completely capable of making great beer and the limit for great beer is up to you.

Sedona Beer Company
Mac Crawford
Sedona, AZ

The short answer is, I would totally recommend another brewery starting up to get their equipment from ABE. As of writing this I've run over 20 batches through the system and haven't developed any significant complaints and the equipment continues to run as effectively and as efficiently as it did on day one.

Due to our unique space constraints we had to completely re-design the standard equipment to fit; however, the design team was patient and thorough resulting in a full 5bbl brewhouse, fermentation, and cellaring set up in under 300 square feet.

Yes, the basic tanks are rolled in China, a fact they are open about, but I have found the quality of the work to be quite excellent (clean, smooth welds, etc.) and all the third party components are high quality readily maintained brands.

I found the initial start-up service call and the normal service to be quite outstanding as well: very competent, knowledgeable, thorough, and patient. This part of the purchase was certainly not imported.

As we continue to grow I will definitely be returning to ABE for additional equipment pieces.

Great customer service! Very responsive to our needs on the canning line.

Levity Brewing Company
Jared Herman
Indiana, PA

The process of a dream becoming a reality was so much easier because of the people at ABE taking a genuine interest in our business and outfitting us with the proper equipment to make it all happen. When starting Levity Brewing Company, the staff at ABE gave me all the time in the world and answered all of my questions. I genuinely felt that they were interested in a long term relationship with us and not simply a quick sale-as was my feeling with numerous other suppliers with whom I spoke.

After the sale was made and the equipment arrived, efforts from ABE didn't stop. They supported us all through our build out-working with both us and our contractors to ensure a proper set up of all the equipment. Even after that, on site technical service showed us exactly how to use everything properly and how to trouble shoot any potential problems that would arise. If problems have arisen, ABE has always provided parts quickly when necessary and walked us through fixes immediately. They still remain just a phone call away even after our warranty period has surpassed.

I've always gotten the sense that the folks at ABE are as invested in my success as I am and I will always give them the opportunity to be part of whatever projects Levity Brewing Company partakes in down the road.

Drekker Brewing Company
Mark Bjornstad
Fargo, ND

ABE has become a true partner for our brewery and one of the best decisions we ever made. We were introduced to ABE several years ago when looking for a small canning line and keg washer. From the very beginning they treated our tiny brewery like family and went above and beyond in every way. What really stood out to us was the level of service after our purchase and this is the reason we have continued our relationship with ABE. Years later when we built a much larger brewery, ABE was there again to help with everything we could need. We now have a top of the line 4 vessel brewhouse, a whole mess of tanks, CIP cart, new canning line, depalletizer and labeler. If ABE makes it, we buy it from ABE. They make amazing quality equipment at an outstanding price and back that all up with a team that is second to none. From sales to engineering to technicians, ABE has the best people in the business!

Ono Brewing Company
Scott Hoffman, President
Chantilly, VA

"Purchased a 15bbl brewhouse, 3ea 30bbl fermenters and other equipment to make my brewery ready for startup. Brad at ABE made this very easy and was always available for my questions. I toured the facility in Nebraska and was very impressed with the quality and professional workmanship. Finally, ABE allowed us to spend a day watching a brew on the system which was worth every minute. Thanks Brad and ABE…"

We are really happy to have chosen ABE for our equipment. ABE has high quality products at an affordable price, and the customer service is awesome. The buying process was easy and the team over at ABE took care of everything we needed, from layout drawings to utility sheets and more. It’s also a good feeling to know they will be there for me in the future, as they are an established company with a long history of happy customers, just like me!

Not only have we been impressed by ABE's superior equipment and amazing customer service, but they continue to go above and beyond by showing their support for breweries across Nebraska.  This recent gift card matching program has helped our business considerably, allowing us to continue to serve our patrons and keep the beer flowing.  We would like to thank ABE, our friends and family, and all of our loyal patrons for their uplifting support.

Purchased a CraftCan15 about a year ago. Such a great bit of equipment and the after sales support is fantastic for tips hints and maintenance questions.

Crane Brewing
Michael Crane
Raytown, MO

We purchased our complete brewery from ABE 4 years ago and their support has always been excellent. Whenever we have had questions or needed replacement parts they have always responded quickly and taken care of our needs. When we started planning our purchase of a canning line Adam came to help us figure out a design and install it in line with our bottling line. This way we can continue bottling some of our brands and canning others. Stan created a detailed AutoCad drawing with everything in place. This enabled us to install our connections for electrical, compressed air, filtered water and Co2 prior to the arrival of the CanCraft 35. When it arrived we had an ABE technician on site to help us get everything assembled. There were a few issues so ABE shipped new parts to arrive next day Saturday delivery so everything could be taken care of while the tech was on site. Everyone at ABE is dedicated to designing, manufacturing and servicing the best brewing equipment available today. I highly recommend anyone considering purchasing brewing equipment to visit them in Lincoln, NE for yourself.

Mr Banks Brewery
Chris Farmer
Viniquip - Australia Distributor
As a brewery that didn’t purchase our canning line through Viniquip, I am especially very grateful and thankful of the ongoing service Viniquip have supplied us. When we required parts for an upgrade due to a breakdown they sought us a warranty claim & they are very prompt in responding if we have issues and when ordering parts. Great service and we are pleased to be working with them & ABE.
