One of the first steps of installing a canning line is finding the right fit for your brewery when it comes to getting beer into the cans and getting them to look good after they’re filled. At last year’s Craft Brewers Conference, Ohio-based Pneumatic Scale Angelus showcased their CB50 Can Seamer, based off their well-established high speed seamer design for larger scale operations. However, the CB50 is specifically designed for the craft brewing industry with a smaller footprint on the brewery floor and a more economical price point.
Which would you rather drink a beer in, a can or a bottle? It’s a question beer lovers – and therefore – brewers are asking themselves as more and more of the record-high 5,000 breweries in the U.S. enter the world of distribution. According to a recent report by the Brewers Association, while bottling is still the preferred method of packaging for beer distribution, canning has more than doubled since 2013. Why cans? Why so much growth now for this type of packaging?
