Case Study Overview
Beavertown, are voted amongst RateBeer's Top 100 Brewers in the World. Founder Logan Plant's bottling requirements were ...
- Automatic filling line for carbonated beer
- 3 sizes of glass bottle
- In-line labelling machine
We supplied, installed and commissioned a CIMEC America bottling line with an STS automatic linear labelling machine.
Beavertown Brewery originally began brewing in the kitchen of Duke’s Brew & Que, one of the original brewpubs in London, before moving to new premises in Hackney Wick under the shadows of the Olympic Stadium. Seven long days (16 hours a piece) of hard physical work was required by the seven-strong Beaver team to turn the premises into the brewery they affectionately called “Beaver Towers”.
Before Beavertown Brewery's move to an 11,000sqft building in Tottenham Hale, Logan Plant, the founder approached us with a requirement for an automatic filling line for carbonated beer, for 3 sizes of glass bottle and an in-line labelling machine for applying wrap-around labels. They were using a bench top syphon filler, hand-lever crown capper, and a semi-automatic bench top labelling machine, as shown on The Guardian’s ‘Meet the musician-turned-brewer behind Beavertown ales’ short film.
To meet their requirement we supplied, installed and commissioned a bottling line, consisting of a CIMEC America DPS 12/12/1C automatic rinsing, filling & capping machine to fill at a rate of 2000 bottles per hour, an S1/LR1 AVV automatic linear labelling machine, a 100 litre rectangular rinse solution delivery tank with product delivery tank, a stainless steel filter housing assembly fitted with two 10” filter cartridges, and all associated conveyoring.
'Beavertown has been very satisfied with the responsiveness and level of service we have received from Vigo and are very happy with quality and performance of our new Cimec bottling line.’
