Waukesha-based Hydro-Thermal Corp., a manufacturer of hydroheaters, is seeking a conditional use permit from the city of Pewaukee to open a demonstration brewery. Plan Commission documents show Hydro-Thermal plans to test new brewing technology it is developing within the brewery, to be located at N22 W23977 Ridgeview Parkway.
Hydro-Thermal will be testing the use of steam injection technology in the brewing process. The company has developed brewing equipment that could “significantly impact the brewing industry as we know it,” according to the submitted project narrative.
“With the intention of thought leadership, we have this special opportunity to develop recently patented technology and demonstrate a new way of brewing to the world,” said Jim Zaiser, president and CEO of Hydro-Thermal in a statement.
