Boulevard Brewing fires up new IT system to run its expanded brewery
Six years ago Boulevard Brewing Company did a major $25 million upgrade, expanding to a state-of-the-art 150 barrel brewhouse. Their product line was expanded to 26 styles.
But with the new system and expanded product line, the company initially kept its old IT system – and with it the nightmares of managing the new brewhouse through power outages, mechanical problems and other issues. Even a two minute power outage would shut down the computers and send a batch of beer to the drain.
Then came Tony Lux, the Purveyor of Technology. Tony wrote a nice article on how he now runs a the brewery from his iPhone.
