Craft Beer

Craft beer is a major driver of the rising demand for canned beverages — a market projected to reach $49.75 billion by 2027. Brewers and owners like you have embraced multipacks as a way to fuel this growth and increase revenue. All you have to do is select the best can carrier packaging for your brewery.

Trusted Multipack Solutions for Craft Brewers

Multipacks are a great option for microbreweries, craft breweries, macro breweries, mobile canners, and co-packers alike.

Versatility

4-pack and 6-pack can handles for standard 211 beverage cans are the most popular among craft breweries. 202 slim cans and 204 sleek cans are also becoming more popular as ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages, such as canned cocktails, wines and hard seltzers, gain market share.

Roberts PolyPro offers can handles in both rigid injection-molded high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and flexible low-density polyethylene (LDPE).

Sustainability

The canned beer industry has long emphasized environmentally sustainable packaging solutions, and that trend is expected to continue. We are proud to offer three environmentally responsible multipacking product lines for cans:

Grip-Pak® LDPE, Craft-Pak® HDPE and Craft-Pak® Versa are 100% biodegradable* and made with considerably less plastic than competitor carriers.

Scalability

Your production needs will vary as your business grows and evolves. In order to drive profitability and remain competitive, it’s important that you have options for the various phases of your business. While a manual applicator is a low-cost solution for smaller runs, you can produce more, faster, at a lower price-per-can costpoint with automated inline applicator solutions.

Roberts PolyPro offers manual press-on applicators that are widely used by start-ups and small craft brewers.

For speeds over 60 cans per minute, breweries and canners can select from semi-automatic and fully automatic inline applicators. With models offering speeds up to 240 cans per minute, you can easily upgrade your application technology to meet your evolving production requirements.
