True has added the Glasgow Warriors Rugby Union club to its customer base after supplying kit to go in the main bar of the Scotstoun Stadium where it has recently moved to.
The bar at Scotstoun has been refurbished to cope with an anticipated increased trade – it is also set to be a training venue for next year’s Commonwealth Games – and provide better facilities as a corporate event venue for conferences.
Unusually, the bar itself is eight metres long, which can cause problems during serving, which is why installer Quality Equipment Distributers (QED) fitted True’s TDD-2 direct draw beer dispenser part way along its length.
“We specified the True beer dispenser as it can easily be moved to the end of the bar leaving a gap in the middle, splitting the bar in two,” explains QED’s Robert Campbell. “The other great advantage of the unit is that the two dispensing fonts and the front panel can easily be re-branded, depending on which brewery is sponsoring a particular match.”
The beer is held in the TDD-2’s refrigerated storage compartment at a constant 0.5 to 3.3°C and is dispensed through two 77mm diameter stainless steel insulated beer columns. Cold air is directed into these columns whilst the beer is being served to reduce foaming.
“The TDD-2 is really easy to maintain,” added Campbell. “All the bar staff have to do is clean out the pipes regularly, as they would do with any beer pumps, and wipe the top counter when necessary.”
