Sydney brewer 4 Pines has embarked on a high growth phase following its acquisition in September by global alcohol giant, AB InBev.

The capital injection has enabled 4 Pines to expand its operations, starting with an upgrade to its Brookvale brewery in order to increase production by up to 50 per cent.

Ensuring its facility met environmental requirements was essential, however the available space provided a challenge for wastewater treatment: there was only a small 15m2 footprint available... and the area was next to the public bar where food and beer is served.

Here's the story of how the brewer overcame these challenges, with help from wastewater treatment company Aerofloat.
