Boulder adds canning line.

Boulder Beer Company reports it has purchased and installed a brand new canning line from Palmer Canning Systems based in Chicago, IL. The Boulder Beer canning line was manufactured at Palmer's Lafayette, IN, shop and is the eighth can line they have built. The system is a rotary closed counter-pressure filler with USA-made valve components, designed to produce 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."

The brewery also purchased a can depalletizer for the line from SKA Fabricating in Durango, CO, a subsidiary of SKA Brewing Company.

Currently, Boulder Beer Company offers two brands in cans--Hazed & Infused year-round and Hoopla Pale Ale in the summer season. These brands have been canned using a mobile canning service. The Palmer line is currently running 45 cans per minute with the capability to run 60 cans per minute.

"It's exciting to now have the ability to offer more of our beers in cans," said Tess McFadden, marketing director at Boulder Beer. "You can expect to see 2-3 new canned offerings from us in the near future."
