Ezi-action® Drumpump for Craft Breweries
2 March 2018
Craft Brewing

Congratulations to the 2017 Winners. Entries are now being invited for the 2018 New World Awards.

One of those entering again this year will be Good George Brewing, which became the first triple-Gold winner in the competition’s history in 2017, including Champion wins for their Amber Ale and Drop Hop Cider.

Ezi-action® Drumpumps and Ezi-action® Safety Measures have for many years been used at Good George Brewing for reliable and safer dispensing of their cleaning chemicals and sanitisers.

Good George, like NZ Pump Company is Hamilton head quartered, it has grown from making 1000 litres craft beer in 2011 to 1.2 million litres this year. It has a solid reputation and is also the official beer at events including Masters Games and National Fieldays at Mystery Creek.

Like with the other award winners, as these craft brewers move from small to commercially viable they have a need for safer dispensing of cleaning chemicals including per acetic acids from bulk containers and drums. Ezi-action® Drumpumps are supplied by the cleaning chemical companies servicing the craft brewers.

Craft brewing, cider and kombucha making are all growing rapidly.  Ezi-action® Drumpumps are helping in this rapid growth.

Keeping things clean is critically important. Ezi-action® Drumpumps are part of successful cleaning regimes.

Ezi-action® Drumpumps are in craft breweries around the world.

Award winning breweries are using Ezi-action® Drumpumps to dispense their cleaning chemicals and sanitisers manually from bulk containers.

Craft Breweries across Australia, Pacific Islands, Singapore, Vietnam, China and New Zealand are enjoying the safety and hygiene benefits of the New Zealand made Ezi-action® Drumpumps.

Those in the craft brewery sector are using them to dispense from 20-30 litre containers and 200 litre drums of chemicals including sodium hydroxide, hydrogen peroxide, peracetic acid and chlorine based products.

Users are impressed with their performance and reliability in cleaning chemicals and sanitisers. 

They recognise the benefits they offer over taps or tipping of cleaning chemicals including allowing the container to stay upright and thereby not leaking or risking worker injury.

In the USA not only craft brewers but also Kombucha manufacturers are using Ezi-action® Drumpumps for dispensing their cleaning chemicals from 20 litre containers and 200 litre drums.

The Ezi-action® Safety Measure Kit is also being used in the craft bewing sector as it enhances safety.

It is being used to dispense peracetic acid used as a sanitiser.


Ezi-action® Drumpumps are also being used to dispense propylene glycol for use in the brewery chillers.

Suppliers of cleaning chemicals to a craft brewery can supply Ezi-action® Drumpumps confident that they meet the highest standards.


Craft brewers in America and microbreweries in UK and Europe are also using Ezi-action® Drumpumps to dispense chemicals from bulk containers.


What is a craft brewer?

While there is no official definition to some it is a beer that has been produced by an individual or individuals who know and love the subject, has the ability to choose and blend the many hop varieties and malts made from both barley, wheat and other grains that are found locally as well as from around the world.

One definition of a craft brewer is that it cannot be more than 25 per cent owned by a larger brewer, normally just a few enthusiasts who love and like beer.   Reference.

ANZ's New Zealand Craft Beer Industry Insights report for 2016 showed total sales of craft beer were up 35 per cent on the previous year, with a number of breweries growing at rates substantially higher than the overall category. The report estimated craft beer now accounts for about 15 per cent of domestic beer sales up from nine per cent the year before, with 168 craft breweries in New Zealand last year. Reference: NZ Herald 3 April 2017.
