It’s germ season so PLEASE clean your Beer Tubes

Note: We are publishing this blog post on Beer Tube cleanliness from January 2013 again…because it’s so important!

Keep these guys out of your Beer Tube!

It’s all over the news these days…cold, flu, sickness, germs. And it’s very important to keep those germs out of your Beer Tubes so your customers can have peace of mind that their dispenser doesn’t come with a flu bug. People in close proximity (i.e. a bar/restaurant) combined with lots of touching/sharing is a dangerous combo for passing around cold/flu germs. And while we’d like to think that everyone washes their hands in the restroom, the sad fact is we’ve all seen it skipped.

By the way, this article from Grub Street highlights a point that should be obvious, but is often overlooked–a clean bathroom can be your most important marketing job. Your goal of generating repeat business can be directly affected by the cleanliness (and perceived cleanliness) of your bar/restaurant, specifically glassware/dinnerware and yes, restrooms.

Beer Tubes are no exception. If a patron sees a dirty Beer Tube behind the bar, it will not only affect their desire to order one, but will also give a bad impression of your bar/restaurant. Conversely, a well-maintained, clean space can have a lasting positive impact on your customers and drive repeat business!

And while we can’t prevent the common cold (or clean your bathrooms for you), we can offer some excellent tips on how to clean your Beer Tubes. Here is a video showing the proper technique for cleaning a Beer Tube. We’ve even developed a cleaning powder specifically formulated for our products. The Beer Tubes Cleaning Powder is available in a 1lb. or 5lb. container and, when used in conjunction with our cleaning brush, is a highly effective cleaning method for all tubes and taps.

Basically we’ve provided the tools and the instructions on how to keep your Beer Tubes clean and properly maintained. Now it’s up to you to implement an effective cleaning strategy to keep your customers coming back for more.
