The Most Comprehensive Book on Beer Packaging ever written Packaging is the most expensive aspect of brewing, representing up to two thirds of the cost of beer production. It is also one of the least forgiving steps in the brewing process. A perfect batch of beer can be ruined in nanoseconds by microorganisms on your nozzles or too much oxygen making its way into your bottles or cans. Foreign objects, like glass, can get into your product and to your consumers. Too little glue on your boxes can send your product (and profit) crashing to the ground. Brewers have a lot invested in their packaging process, and nothing less than reputations and profitability are at stake. An up-to-date, comprehensive book on the topic has been long overdue. And with all the changes and innovations in packaging that have taken place in the past 20 years, no such book has been written…until now. Enter Beer Packaging, Second Edition, the first comprehensive book on the beer packaging process since the early 1980s. This thorough, one-of-a-kind guide and reference represents the many new innovations and best practices developed since MBAA published the best-selling first edition. It is a must-have resource for all of today’s brewers up and down the production line, and includes perspectives for both the small craft brewers and those managing small scale pilot runs for large breweries averaging more than 10 million barrels per year. Beer Packaging, Second Edition guides users around the many potential pitfalls of packaging, particularly those that can affect your current or future customers, and ultimately your profit margins. It covers the beer packaging process from the tank to containers, to filling and boxing, and everything in between, including.
