New can line for Czech brewer
Czech bottle brewer, Rebel Brewery, has made a $373,000 investment in a new can line, after the company was forced to diversify as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The company launched a canned offering as far back as April 2018, which included the first yellow can Rebel XI and then a year later, the second blue can Rebel 0.0 and the third pink one Rebelka, flavoured beer for girls, followed. In 2020, the company extended its can product line with a flavoured non-alcoholic beer Rebel 0.0 Citrus.
However, the pandemic has meant its traditional customer base of local bars and restaurants has been curtailed due to lockdown measures. This has resulted in the company devising the 3,000 cans an hour line.
