Founders Brewing (Grand Rapids, MI) announced last week they will start canning for the first time in their 15 year history. Interestingly, the actual canning line was on display at the Craft Brewer’s Conference in Washington D.C. This is the actual machine at work. Because the announcement was so new, there were no prototypes of the cans. Wisconsin based Stevens Point Brewing apparent has a similar canning line to this – the one Foundershas purchased. The Brew Pack 150 by the Switchback Group.
This is the canning line in action. (Using Point cans as an example.) Look for All Day IPA by the pool this summer.
