Brewers renew interest in the beverage can
“Good Beer Week” was held in Melbourne from 10 to 25 May 2014. The week long festivities were a celebration of the growing craft beer industry in Australia. As part of the program, the second annual Australian Craft Brewers Conference (ACBC) was held at the Melbourne Arts Centre by the Craft Brewers Industry Association (CBIA).
The conference gave craft brewers from Australia and New Zealand the opportunity to collaborate on a range of industry topics with guest speakers, panel discussions and trade displays. Visy showcased various craft beer packaging solutions including ranges of fibre packaging, beverage cans, one way Kegs and PakTech can and bottle carrier products. Feedback from brewers highlighted renewed interest in the beverage can teamed with PakTech carrier solutions. The beverage can provides the ideal vehicle to maintain beer properties, keeping light and oxygen away from the beer and maintaining product quality.
