A New Canning Machine for Uncle Leo’s Brewery
Uncle Leo’s Brewery is leasing a canning machine which is set to arrive from Calgary, Alberta in May 2017. They predict that the machine will increase their production by 1,000 litres per week.
“Overall, it’s very exciting because we’ve been wanting to expand for a while. But it was a matter of finding the way that was going to benefit us and everybody else the best.”
-Rebecca Whiffen, Uncle Leo’s Brewery, Co-Owner
Their current bottle machine only fills two bottles at a time, so switching to a semi-automatic canning machine is definitely a step in the right direction.
“More and more breweries seem to be moving in that direction compared to bottling. I think it’s a good fit for us to do the same.”
-Karl Whiffen, Uncle Leo’s Brewery Co-Owner
Uncle Leo’s Brewery is also planning to add a patio to their brewery, so thirsty Nova Scotians and travelers can stop in for a beer during the busy summer months.
