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.
All of us here at Whiskey Run Creek Distillery couldn't have been happier with our choice to go with ABE for our distilling equipment. All of the people have been great to work with and Tanner is hands down best in the business! We've had more questions on distilling than we want to admit to but they are always one call away and any problems or modifications we've wanted they have come up with ideas how to make it work. They came down to install it and were there to guide us through the first run on the machine to make sure we understood the ins and outs of the equipment. The few things we've needed fixed they came right away to get it fixed and get us up and running again! We look forward to the future working with ABE! We wouldn't be here where we are without them!
We purchased a depal, GREAT customer service and production time. Look forward to purchasing additional equipment in the future.
I've had an excellent experience working with Brad and the team at ABE. Brad's knowledge and responsiveness to ALL of my questions and concerns has been awesome! Being a former brewery owner & brewer himself, he knew what I was going through. Working with ABE was one less thing to worry about while putting my brewery together.
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
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!
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.
We purchased our ABE brewhouse, cellar equipment and canning line back at the first of the year and have been extremely happy with the equipment and support!
Great customer service! Very responsive to our needs on the canning line.
We have bought both our brewhouse and all of our tanks and controls from ABE. It has been great working with them.
"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…"
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.
Customer service! Quality of equipment! Expertise and knowledge of the industry. It would be hard to imagine another company with the same confluence of professionalism, passion, and integrity. The leadership from the highest office, to the fabrication floor, is unparalleled. Exemplary. When visiting the ABE home (home IS an accurate word, not just a "factory"), we were treated as respected friends by every single person who worked there. Every. Single. Person. This is not an accident. Intentional relationship pursuit is a hallmark for any successful company and they live this out every day!
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.
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!
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.
Come for the equipment, stay for the customer service. I’m so glad that we chose to work with ABE for our brewery. They have bent over backwards to assist us at every step of our process. We’ve had a couple dumb things pop up along the way and ABE has helped us work through them with nothing but smiles and encouragement. I’m so glad to have such a great company right in my backyard. Cheers!!!
Viniquip have been nothing short of fantastic in their after sales service and support, prompt to answer no matter the hour, knowledgeable (David is a gun with anything ABE related) and overall, a great team to work with. Would highly recommend.
Our ABE canning line has been doing strong for 1.5 million cans now, we would definitely buy one again (and will when it’s time to upgrade toa faster unit).
Incredibly friendly, informed and helpful sales staff, Amanda P! Excellent support and information from the entire ABE crew. I highly recommend ABE!
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 & we are pleased to be working with them & ABE.
