After fermentation, breweries usually send the beer to a centrifuge to chill it and clear the beer further. Once that's done, the beer is then sent into a bright tank. At this stage, the bright tank is purged with CO2 and the beer is almost at freezing temperatures. Proper carbonation is then achieved by pushing the CO2 through carb stones, which breaks it into tiny bubbles that make it much easier for the CO2 to be absorbed. Lastly, the carbonation levels are tested periodically so the beer can be packaged and sold once it's reached the ideal carbonation point.
