Benefit from duty credits in the secure and accountable decanting of your beer

As one of the world’s leading container manufacturers, THIELMANN is fortunate to be able to react to this new and unprecedented global climate swiftly, and without disruption to our existing operations, with our brand-new and dynamic service offering.

We are proud to introduce the THIELMANN Decanting Service, which allows our brewers and customers to safely and securely decant and dispose of their ullage (unsaleable beer) in an accountable manner, resulting in a return of the duties paid on their beer by the respective tax authority of their country.

Disposing of large quantities of beer from kegs in a safe manner presents various practical problems, firstly, kegs must be drained using a safe dispense system to remove the gas (CO2/N2/Mixed Gas) and, secondly, if the disposal involves the municipal sewers this needs to be arranged and approved in advance with the local authorities whilst also obeying local environmental laws; due in part to the oxygen it takes out of local water courses and also at the filtration plant.

THIELMANN’s Beer Decanting Service removes these obstacles and ensures the safe and secure emptying of your kegs, in a sustainable manner, and if required, the disposal of the excess beer in accordance with local legislation.

Our many years of expertise in the beverage industry and versatility render us the preferred partner of choice for the secure and sustainable disposal of your excess beer.
