Front Street Brewery of Davenport, Iowa knew of Crawford’s many talents and came to them for the job of fabricating brew tanks.

Crawford Company, historically specializing in HVAC, plumbing, laser cutting and the like, has recently entered the brew systems manufacturing market. When they were approached by a local bar and restaurant, they found themselves thinking outside the A/C unit. Front Street Brewery of Davenport, Iowa knew of Crawford’s many talents and came to them for the job of fabricating brew tanks, something Crawford had not yet approached but knew they were capable of. Steve Zuidema, owner of Front Street, was so pleased with the outcome that he is now teamed up with Crawford to sell the brew tanks. The team plans to be at full capacity with orders very quickly.

Crawford’s equipment provides micro-brewers with functional and aesthetically pleasing equipment and they emphasize that it is made in the USA. A team of well trained engineers, designers, and highly skilled fabricators partner to form an effective and efficient process creating a variety of brewing elements such as stainless steel steam fired brew houses, steam heated mash tuns, brew kettles, hot liquor tanks, brewing flatforms, keg washers and fermenters. This is a very exciting new business venture and yet another growth opportunity for the Quad Cities.
