"From the beginning of our project we felt that Pioneer Tank & Vessel was the right choice to work with because Kevin and his staff to this day have been the best customer service Neshaminy Creek has ever experienced in the brewing industry.

Kevin and his staff went out of their way to keep us up to date on our tank builds (Kevin is still the only person from any and all vendors we’ve ever worked with who sent us pictures of our equipment during build out) as well as communicating with us from start to finish addressing any concerns or questions we had.

It goes without saying that craft beer is a fast paced and rapidly growing industry; one that is short on trustworthy and competent manufacturers.

But, make no mistake, under Kevin McDowell’s guidance and the quality of work they’re producing, Pioneer Tank and Vessel are in a great position to continue to grow into one of the leaders in this industry in the years to come."

"Kevin was great to work with; he took our inputs on the design and was able to make a great boil kettle for us. The quality of the kettle is superior to most stainless welding we have seen on other systems that are available in the area. Very clean welds make the kettle easier to clean...

Kevin worked with us in designing a fermenter that would fit in our tight space. This required the fermenter to be abnormally tall and skinny for a 7BBL tank... We could not be happier with the products we have seen thus far from Pioneer Tank & Vessel. The fermenter is absolutely beautiful, and fits snugly next to our other two fermentation tanks."

"We purchased two 20 Barrel fermenter tanks from Pioneer in 2014 to facilitate our small batch production for our tap room. Our experience with Pioneer was excellent and our satisfaction with our tanks was such that we again turned to Pioneer for the production of a 100 Bbl fermenter to expand our large scale production for distribution...

Not only did we have an aggressive timeline for delivery, we had very specific design features we wanted to see in the new tank. Pioneer was thoroughly attentive in working out every small detail to be sure what we received exactly matched our specifications."
