Hey all - we're back from Montecchio Emilia, Italy where we tested out our brand new CFT bottling line last week (and where KC worked on his sun tan)! This line is simply put awesome. At nearly 100 bottles per minute, this thing cranks out quality fills with ease, and with virtually no oxygen pickup - which means the best possible tasting beer for you, the consumer! We can't wait to get it installed!
And there's good news there, too: the line got disassembled and packed up following our test, and is hitting the water this week. A short, 3-4 week voyage should find it here in Florida, where it will be put back together again in our new wing by experts from CFT. All this means six-packs of your favorite Buddha beers like Floridian and Hop Gun (plus four-packs and bombers of our special releases) will be ready to hit shelves mid- to late-fall.
Check out this video below of the line in action. And check back in August for a full announcement on our bottling plans.
