The Micro Canning Revolution featuring Australia’s Six String Brewing


Back in the days of turning into an adult, at the end of school basically I used home brewing to make a cheap way of getting alcohol and grog. And then yeah, over time the love of it kind of grew into this monster. At Six String Brewery, we started back in 2013. Primarily for the first year we just did kegs only and after a year into using kegs we packaged into cans. We thought that was a great format for us. In Australia, craft beer hasn’t really been associated much with cans but we see the local benefits of cans. You can take it to the beach, to the sporting field, they’re better for the beer itself, keeps the beer fresher for longer basically – a lot longer shelf life. I did a lot of research looking for canning systems. Basically who was using what in the States at the time. There was a couple of others but Cask seemed to be at the forefront of craft canning. A lot of the other systems were bigger, too big for our needs so that was basically the right size for us. And then that took off really well for us. Bigger than we expected so another year after that, we purchased a bigger canning system from Cask Systems as well.
