BrewDog moving away from glass to cans


BrewDog is selling its glass bottling line as it plans to shift towards cans in an effort to reach net-zero carbon emissions.

The Scottish brewer has listed its Krones 46,000 BPH Glass Bottling Line on Ebay for £2million.

The machine was installed in 2017, but the buyer will have to pay for it to be removed.

So far it has been obtaining 84 views per hour with 122 watchers, following BrewDog co-founder James Watt’s Twitter announcement.

He wrote: “Cans are significantly better for the planet than one way bottles – the carbon footprint of a canned beer is approximately 35% lower than a bottled beer – so, as part of our commitment to sustainability we decided to put our big bottling line on eBay.”

Their Ellon HQ is one of the most technically advanced breweries in the world, which includes a state-of-the-art canning line.

BrewDog aim to become carbon neutral by 2022 and recently announced plans to invest in a £14million on-site bioplant.
