"With Sky and his team over at Brix Beverage, they were prompt in responding, punctual and told me exactly what needed to happen and when it would happen. They told me I'd have the ice machine back within the week and we certainly did.
It was a flawless experience and I'd highly recommend them to anyone who needs service on their ice machines, soda fountains and even kegerators!
Truly a one stop shop and outstanding customer service!"

What are the signs my Beverage Dispenser may need to be replaced?Tasting problems and attractiveness are big reasons for a new dispenser. Here are the top 6 signs: Outdated lines Broken valves Missing O-rings Cracked nozzles Cracked fountain soda header Cracked drip grill over the drip pan
What components do I need for a soda dispenser Bag-in-Box system?A beverage dispenser system is mainly hidden in the backroom, away from your customers and guests. Here are the (11) main components you need: Beverage dispenser Cooling system (Such as a cold plate or remote cooler) CO2 Tank Primary and secondary regulators Syrup pumps Carbonator Hoses and beverage tubing Stainless fittings BIB Connectors Rack system Syrup
How much space do I need for a soda fountain?Soda fountains vary greatly in shape and sizes. In the front of the house, the fountain machine takes up significant space but serves as a branded attraction. You can easily Google and get the size directly for the model you need. Generally, the back-of-the-house system takes the most room: 5 Gal boxes of syrup: 11" x 15" x 8" (Sitting in a rack system) 20 lb. CO2 tanks: H: 28" , Diameter 8" Carbonators approx: 12" x 12" x 12" Syrup pumps are generally mounted and out of the way
What is the difference between a Pre-mix and Post-mix soda fountain system?Pre-mix is soda ready to drink (carbonated water & syrup mixed) as if you were buying it in a bottle — not much savings here. Major syrup distributors sell you the soda in bulky refillable stainless tanks for about what you can buy it for on sale at the local supermarket. Basically, glorified soda out of the bottle being dispensed from a faucet. Post-mix is where the REAL savings lies. It is the combination of carbonated water made from a carbonator and BIB syrup mixed together at the fountain head as it is being dispensed into the cup. On average, 5 gallon Bag-in-Box syrup is approx. $110. It will yield about 30 gallons of finished product.
Where can I get my CO2 gas and/or beer gas?Industrial gas suppliers, such as Airgas, or most welding supply will be able to refill/replace your CO2 tank. However, to make it easy, we offer CO2 tanks with Alameda Soda craft soda delivery.
How long will a box of syrup last?A 5 gallon box of syrup will yield you approximately 30 gallons of finished product. A 3 gallon BIB yields 20 gallons. We offer both sizes.
Do you have flavor labels for dispenser valves?Yes! You can place your order here. Or feel free to give us a call at 510-564-2700.
