  • screw top aluminum bottles

    I have a small 2bbl brewery. Thinking of beers to go. Does anyone use screw top bottles and have a good resource to buy them?

    Thank you

    Biased opinion here but you should check out to-go cans We (Oktober Can Seamers) supply small behind-the-bar can seamers and cans for exactly that application. Our machines are built in Michigan and we have a warehouse to supply cans in Nevada as well. Shoot us an email at if you have any questions or check out our website Cheers!

      Thx for the reply
      The few grand for the sealer is a little steep. Also not knowing if I'll sell enough to justify it.

      Hi Jay, we have a few models available and have a trade-in program that allows us to refurb machines that we can resell also. We get a ton of positive feedback from our customers on their quick return on investment. feel free to shoot us an email or give us a call anytime.

    Hey Jay, I believe Exal Packaging (which I think either became or is owned by Trivium Packaging now) would be a good choice for aluminum bottles. Most of the aluminum bottles you'll find in 12 - 16oz sizes are made to support wide-mouth ROPP caps (like the Bud Light aluminum bottles).

    I hope this info was helpful!

      My I ask how you plan on packaging your beer into bottles or cans? Are you also looking for a solution for that?

        I would recommend an Oktober crowler seamer. If you're not sure about how much you'll sell maybe you can find a neighbor with a crowler machine to sell you a test run of cans to do some sales analysis. Ball sells screw top lids, you can seam a bunch at your buddies and then prefill or fill on demand. I think you'll discover it will be worthwhile to buy your own machine.
