From horses to hoses: Lateral thinking for brewers

Rhona

We get pretty good at thinking laterally to solve problems in this remote rural corner of Europe.

Problem: How can we find out how the inner surfaces of our trusty brewery hoses are standing up to daily wear and tear after two years of hard use?
Clue: What else around us is similar to a hose? Eureka! A horse’s windpipe!
Solution: Rhona the vet scopes our hoses just as she would one of our horses!

No stone left unturned in the quality control at Kinnegar… Good thinking, Rachel. Thank you, Rhona!
