Ales of Distinction
Wolf of the Willows make good times, facilitated through the production of beer. They have a passion for producing hand crafted, modern ales that are distinct in quality, flavour and character – what they like to call ‘Ales of Distinction’.
Totally Integrated Automation
Siemens’ Totally Integrated Automation concept gives Wolf of the Willows the flexibility to be able to very quickly change their processes, change their batches but also achieve consistency along the way. Siemens technology has allowed the Wolf and the Willows brewers to effectively monitor and manage their entire fermentation process, cutting this down from 24 to just 18 days. Which means more beer, more often!
