Craftbloc Mountain Fork

Mountain Fork Brewery enjoy Low Oxygen Pickup!

Rivers, lakes, mountains, and forests don’t immediately leap to mind when you think of Oklahoma. But in the eastern part of the state, the town of Broken Bow sits adjacent to the sylvan Hochatown State Park, which houses a large reservoir fed by nearby mountain streams. For weekend warriors in cities like Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and Dallas, each about three hours away by car, this represents a refreshing change of scenery. And nothing fits better into a getaway-ready tourist town than a local brewery.

Recognizing this niche hadn’t been filled by 2015, now co-owners Mark McDaniel, Charles Wilson, and Keith Shearer decided they wanted to be the ones to bring a brewpub, complete with food and tasting room, to Broken Bow. Such was the genesis of Mountain Fork Brewery, the name owing itself to the pristine nearby river from which the company sources water for brewing.

Garrison Brewing canning line

Garrison Brewing Word Hard and Play Hard

The brewing scene in Halifax, Nova Scotia, has evolved and grown greatly in recent years. For Brian Titus, who founded Garrison Brewing with Mark Obermaier 20 years ago, being able to adapt and finding your own identity is key to standing the test of time. Just make sure you have fun while you’re at it.

Garrison Brewing

“…the company invested in a 12 head Palmer Canning line with depalletiser, which sits snugly alongside the bottling setup.

But you can’t ignore cans. We only started canning in May 2017 and it now accounts for 15% of our output and it’s on course to grow to 30%. After that, who knows where it’s going to go.

We could have gone for cheaper options on the market but we didn’t see the value on taking that route. You can ruin a perfectly good beer in the final seconds of the process and if you’ve not thought about that issue, then that’s a problem. You need to focus on packaging.”

SaltWater IPA can

Saltwater Brewery Cans Hit the Market

Saltwater BrewingThe life of a brewery moves in different stages: First there’s the concept, then the opening, then small batches of beer turn to monstrous batches that produce hundreds of gallons at a time, then distribution, then, as some start to do, making packaged beer. Delray Beach’s Saltwater Brewery has entered that next phase with the addition of our canning line, which this week has created enough beer to make six-packs of Screamin’ Reels IPA available at liquor stores, grocery stores, restaurants, and bars throughout our area.

Head Brewer Dustin Jeffers shared the scientific reasons for why the brewery went with cans over bottles.

“Cans are lighter, more easily transported and won’t shatter when dropped. Craft beer in a can maintains its quality, as it’s not spoiled by light, and keeps the beer fresher in an airtight and oxygen-free environment.”

Congratulations to the guys at Saltwater Brewery!

Warped Wing Brewing

Canning Line Installed at Warped Wing

As of June, Warped Wing Brewing Co. has reached a highly anticipated milestone after only six months of operation using our beer canning line.

Located in downtown Dayton, Ohio, Warped Wing released its three core beers — 10 Ton Oatmeal Stout, Flyin’ Rye IPA and Ermal’s Belgian Style Cream Ale — for distribution in 4-packs of 16-oz. cans in mid-July.

“The cans will be sold to-go only in the brewery, and will be available in local retail stores, and eventually in other bars and restaurants.”

…said Nick Bowman, Marketing Director for the brewery.

The brewery will be the first in the new wave of microbreweries in the region to can its beer, which allows for easier transportation and the potential sale inside facilities that prohibit glass, such as baseball stadiums. Cans are also enjoying a new found hipster popularity in the craft beer crowd, which could also help boost Warped Wing’s sales.

Boulder Beer

Canning Line Installed at Boulder Beer Co

We recently installed a brand new canning line at Boulder Beer Company, Colorado’s first craft brewery. It was manufactured at our Lafayette, IN, shop and is the eighth can line we have built in the US.

The system is a rotary closed counter-pressure filler with USA made valve components, producing extremely low can airs.

“The counter pressure system keeps air from touching the beer and makes a better product for longer,” said Tom Schnitzler, Plant Engineer at Boulder Beer Company. “With this new can line we will be able to get our canned beer out more consistently than ever before.”

Founded in 1979, Boulder Beer Company has been a pioneer in the craft brewing industry for 35 years, celebrating their milestone 35th Anniversary this year on June 14th. Their passion for innovation keeps their brand mix diverse, offering a taste for every palate. They currently package seven year-round beers, numerous rotating seasonals, and periodically release very limited-edition, small-batch brews throughout the year.
