Beer with Nitrogen and CO2

Gas Mixtures x Beer Styles

Chopp com Nitrogênio - Maior e Menor concentração de CO2 e N2

Currently, there is an increasing offer in varieties of beers available on the market, each with its own particularities and unique characteristics.

In terms of beer consumption, it also increases the challenge of attracting the final consumer and guaranteeing their loyalty, since they are also increasingly demanding and selective as to what they are consuming, as there are many options.

Therefore, it is essential to give the customer a unique experience with each beer he chooses to drink, allowing him, to notice the difference in flavor, color, aroma, etc., distinctive for each beer style.

This challenge, between preserving a specific beer style and offering the best product, has led to the use of a gas mixture, which means a mixture combining CO2 and Nitrogen to optimize beer dispensing (remove the beer from the keg to the tap).

The customized gas mixture, according to the style of the beer served, is crucial at this time, in order to keep the original characteristic of each beer style. In addition, it also provides a uniform, consistent and prolonged beer head, lasting up to 3 times longer than a beer extracted with CO2 only.

Due to the longer–lasting beer head, the beer temperature is also maintained for longer, which generates to the consumer, a more pleasant tasteful and visual experience, and as an outcome, increase of consumption.

Below, you can find the relation between each beer style and its most suitable gas mixture.
