Vigo install canning lines at Harbour Brewing & Wild Beer
Vigo Ltd, silver sponsors of SIBA, have installed American Beer Equipment (ABE) canning lines at The Harbour Brewing Co and The Wild Beer Co.
In April Vigo announced its partnership with ABE, becoming their UK agents. Jon Clatworthy, Vigo’s Commercial Sales Director said, “Cans, as well as being convenient, help protect beer from light and oxygen and retain fresh hop flavours. We chose ABE because they developed their LinCan™ canning line in response to the needs of craft brewers and they have an excellent reputation in the US for design and manufacture. We have an excellent reputation in the UK for supply, technical service and full engineering support.”
LinCan™ lines include a twist rinser, 7 head filling station, seamer, rinser, airblower and packing table. To minimise oxygen pickup there is a CO2 purge, a fob pulse and under-lid CO2 jet.
In July Vigo supplied, installed and commissioned LinCan™ 30 can per minute lines at The Harbour Brewing Co and The Wild Beer Co.
Eddie Lofthouse, co-founder of the progressive Harbour Brewing Co, reports that their sales have increased by 30% since introducing cans. Eddie said, “Vigo has been integral to the success of our business so far. They give us good service, and the knowledge, backup, and support of their staff is excellent.”
Since beginning canning, Co-Director of the innovative Wild Beer Co, Brett Ellis gave the following feedback, “We chose Vigo for the canning line because we have an excellent existing relationship with them and they offered the right product at the right time – and the right price. The cans have met our highest expectations.”
