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.


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).


The canned beer industry has long emphasized environmentally sustainable packaging solutions, and that trend is expected to continue. We are proud to offer two environmentally-responsible solutions.

Our Grip-Pak LDPE product line is now certified as 100% biodegradable. Additionally, our Craft-Pak HDPE product line uses 30% less plastic than competitive carriers and is 100% recyclable.


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 applicators. With models offering speeds up to 240 cans per minute, you can easily upgrade your application technology to meet your evolving production requirements.
