LED Project: Burnt Hickory Brewery

Download This Case Study

Established in 2012, Burnt Hickory quickly became one of Georgia’s most popular Nano Breweries. Just two years after opening, the local beer maker catapulted into Micro Brewery status, which required an expansion of their operations facility and created even greater demand for effective, efficient lighting.

Existing 100W T12 8ft fluorescent lamps were replaced with 40W LED lamps, which have twice the lumen output and ten times the life. The 5000K daylight rated lighting illuminates the stainless steel conicals and equipment throughout the brewery.

Aside from the 25% energy savings, good lighting was not only essential for Burnt Hickory’ product quality, but it also contributed to the experience for Burnt Hickory’s growing numbers of fans by providing better visibility for brewery tours and tastings.
