Operation Frosty Box IV – Double Fridge Move

You’ve read about Operation Frosty Box I & II from back before we even opened.

You’ve seen Operation Frosty Box III from our big 3-bbl brewery expansion almost two year ago.

Now we bring to you, Operation Frosty Box IV – Double Fridge Move.

The Problem

Our new brewery tasting room will use the same fridge as our current brewery tasting room. At the new brewery, we need to install a fire sprinkler in the fridge before we open. It’s impossible to install a fire sprinkler in a fridge that isn’t there.

The Solution

Move our current tasting room fridge to the new brewery and move our old tasting room fridge back to the current brewery without interrupting the flow of beer to customers and without letting our beer get warm.

The Action

Step 1
The first problem is that the old fridge is way bigger than the small serving fridge at the tasting room. To accommodate the bigger fridge, we had to de-bolt Anita and Hedi from the ground and transport them over to our new brewery.

Step 2
Move the tasting room fridge over to the new brewery. We had to remove all serving equipment (taps, CO2 regulators, etc.), dissemble the fridge at the current brewery, and re-assemble the fridge at the new brewery.


Step 3
Break down the cold-storage fridge at the new brewery and re-install it in the current tasting room. Transport all kegs that were at the new brewery to the fridge at the current tasting room. Re-install the tap system – all while making sure the beer stays cold.

The Result

We now have our old fridge from Operation Frosty Box II in our current brewery and our serving fridge behind our new bar with a sprinkler in it.
