Nashville brewery benefits from HVLS fan’s comfort and moisture control

Nashville microbrewery Yazoo Brewery opened its doors in 2003 in Nashville and became known for their Yazoo Pale Ale, Dos Perros, Spring Wheat, and Onward Stout. Just as quickly as they became a local favorite, they outgrew their original brewery and moved to a new brewery building the Gulch neighborhood.

The Trouble

Yazoo Brewery saw a need for better airflow and a proper cooling mechanism in their facility, particularly during the hot summer months. While they had ventilation fans installed on the apex of their roof, it wasn’t much help moving the air throughout the 12,000 sq. ft. building.

With summer weekend tours in full swing and temperatures rapidly rising, the owners were concerned about comfort for both their employees and brewery guests. The facility uses large amounts of water, which can contribute to workplace injuries as well as mold concerns. For this reason, moisture control was also an issue.

The Solution

In May 2016, Yazoo had the Titan 16-foot industrial fan installed in a 40 ft. by 40 ft. space within their warehouse. The fan was installed above an area that is used as one of the main stops on the brewery tour to also help create a cool atmosphere for visitors. Previously, without proper airflow, the floor in this area had always been wet with stagnant moisture. Since the fan was installed, the floor has remained dry.

“It definitely creates a nice strong breeze,” said Yazoo founder Linus Hall. “The design also seems tobe a lot sleeker than the other big fans on the market and the touchscreen system is really intuitive.”

Compared to similar products from competitors, the Titan offers a smaller, more powerful motor, a sleek design aesthetic, fewer blades for less stress-inducing torque and slower velocity for far-reaching airflow, making it the perfect cooling and heating component for any brewery warehouse space.
