    Alpha Brewing Operations - 35 cpm and 70cpm options

    The annual Craft Brewers Conference is right around the corner – Alpha Brewing Operations will be unleashing our long-anticipated canning line and man it was worth the wait. Two options will be available – 35cpm and 70cpm – on an in-line format. The proto-type is killing it in Alabama with over 250k cans through it with no major problems at all – solid reliable design built by the leaders in the craft beer industry – Alpha Brewing Operations.

    UPDATE: The release of our new canning line was the talk of the show – our new design of a “load cell” which weighs each can before it gets seamed had everyone’s attention and changed many buyer’s minds. We’ll be coming out with a new web site within the next week or so and all details/video’s will be listed for your viewing pleasure.

    Alpha Brewing Operations - reject station

    Alpha's design team thought of everything on this beautiful canning line - any can coming through the seamer that does not meet the spec's of the sensor will head into the reject station for examination. Really works well - cheers!

    Alpha Brewing Operations - new canning line was a hit at CBC

    Wow, what a week we had last week at the annual Craft Brewers Conference in Washington, DC. The traffic through our booth was amazing – the brewhouse, canning line and mill certainly showed what we can do and how we do it the “Alpha way”.

    The release of our new canning line was the talk of the show – our new design of a “load cell” which weighs each can before it gets seamed had everyone’s attention and changed many buyer’s minds. We’ll be coming out with a new web site within the next week or so and all details/video’s will be listed for your viewing pleasure.

    Contact us directly with questions – www.alphabrewops.com – Cheers!

    Alpha Brewing Operations - simple tricks to keep DO levels low

    As big of a hit as the new canning line was at CBC last week - it's still a really simple design and makes it so attractive. Once the lids are picked they are forced onto the cans by a Plexiglas shield - they can't move until they get weighed and seamed - thus lowering the DO levels - simple indeed. We have ordered 10 canning lines to be built - 5 sold today and we expect the others to go by weeks end - Cheers!

    Alpha Brewing Operations - dual lid pic

    Alpha's dual lid pic applies the lids twice as fast as any in-line system, thus, reducing the amount of O2 pickup - simple things - also notice the 4 column lid organizer - never run out of lids during a run - Cheers!
