Craft Beer Industry Packaging Equipment

Few businesses have seen such a rise in popularity in the last decade as the craft beer industry. What often starts as a hobby for many individuals can quickly turn into a growing, burgeoning business that includes thousands of loyal fans and connoisseurs.

When it is time to begin distributing bottled craft beer, several factors are important to consider, such as:

  • Continuous and consistent run speed of your system
  • Customizable, affordable design with a small footprint
  • Integration into any existing filling systems
  • Easy preventative maintenance
  • Ability to accommodate updates and modifications as your business grows and changes

These considerations also apply to businesses that are shipping and packaging wine and liquor.

Combi has been designing end of line packaging systems for the beverage industry for decades and understands the unique considerations of the craft beer industry.

Our packaging equipment for craft beer includes:

  • Customized design
  • Automatic or semi-automatic case packing systems
  • Product collation and accumulation
