Five Terms Every Would-be Beer Connoisseur Should Know, Part 3

There are many things that we at One Fat Frog Restaurant Equipment enjoy in life. To crush our enemies, see them driven before us, and hear the lamentations of their women ranks pretty highly, but not as high as bringing our customers the widest selection of used restaurant equipment at the lowest prices. But one cannot live on value, selection, and customer service alone! No, occasionally, one also needs…

In honor of the greatest fermented beverage, the One Fat Blog will look at five terms that you may see on a six pack from that new microbrew – terms that you might not fully understand. Well, as sure as One Fat Frog offers free delivery to Tampa, Jacksonville, Ocala, and most of the Sunshine State, we can also help you understand your beer terminology.

3) Gypsy Brewer. Yes, the term is arguably offensive. No, it does not refer to the Romani people, or a Cher song. It simply means that the brewer doesn’t own his own brewing equipment, but rather borrows/shares this equipment with others.

Let’s face it – a full brewery full of equipment is expensive, and takes up a lot of space. This equates to high overhead, a cost that many small brewers simply can’t afford. Other brewers, however, HAVE all the equipment, but don’t use it 24/7. By renting out their equipment during down times, the equipment owner makes some supplemental income and the “gypsy brewer” gets to make his mystical elixir without incurring most of the costs of buying/leasing the equipment and the space to put it. Everybody wins, including the beer drinker!

Some brewers have adopted the term “tenant brewer” to describe their nomadic brewing lifestyle, but, no matter the name, the fact remains that “gypsy brewing” helps get more beers and more beer styles out there – and that can’t be a bad thing.

If you serve beer in your restaurant or bar (or in the restaurant or bar you want to open), One Fat Frog can help with more than just cool terms. We have keg coolers, bar sinks, bottle coolers, and everything else your bar will need to store, pour, and serve the perfect beer.
