Fulfilling the Specialty Gas Needs of El Paso Microbreweries


Call it a “fad” – or not. But this sure shows every sign of being the Age of the Microbrewery, or Craft Brewery. Hand in hand with it has come the Rise of the Brewpubs, those sometimes whimsical, sometimes posh public houses or restaurants that brew beer on the premises and are cropping up (or might that better be “hopping” up?) in neighborhoods all over the states anymore – including here, in El Paso. 

Industry statistics show that, of the 5,301 U.S. breweries operating in 2016, 99% of them were craft breweries. That’s 700 more than were around in 2015 – and 165% more than the 2,000 craft breweries that existed only six years ago! No doubt about it, people like microbrewery beers. Their sales are escalating by 6% annually. And this is while beer industry sales on the whole remain … well … flat.

Pardon us for reiterating what you doubtlessly know if you have a microbrewery or a brewpub yourself. We just concluded that plenty of outsiders who take pleasure in microbrewery beers would get a kick out of knowing the facts too. Of course, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that we’d know them at SYOXSA, Inc.. We supply microbreweries and brewpubs in and around El Paso with the specialty gases they require: CO2 and Nitrogen, mainly, but also Chlorine. Those are the top gases, at any rate. And the local tie-in is what’s extremely important to our microbrewery and brewpub customers. It’s their guarantee – a guarantee PurityPlus® is just about uniquely positioned to give – that they’ll always have access to the gases they need when they need them:

  • the bulk containers of CO2 to “fizz up” their beers – in bottles or cans on microbrewery production lines and in mugs or glasses when dispensed at the brewpub bar;
  • the Nitrogen so crucial to creating a very smooth, creamy Guinness-style beer and, more commonly, for impeding oxidation in the headspace of a bottle or can, which can affect taste and color;
  • the Nitrogen for use at brewpubs in dispensing draught beer; and
  • the Chlorine used in destroying bacteria in bottles and cans on the microbrewery production line.

What El Paso microbreweries and brewpubs look for more than anything from a specialty gas supplier is quick, responsive customer service. SYOXSA, Inc. serves it up in a variety of distinctive ways. Our local frame of reference lets us, for example…

  • build close, personal partnerships with all of our microbrewery and brewpub customers,
  • extend more of the face-time and technical expertise they appreciate,
  • better apprehend their needs so we can fulfill even their strictest specs,

  • take charge of product manufacture and testing to groundbreaking degrees, hence assuring a uniform product of the highest quality, and
  • keep a sharp eye on production and delivery costs, creating efficiencies that help us keep our prices among the most economical in the industry.
