BREWERY BASECAMP – FOCUSED ON QUALITY BEERS!
Since 2009, we have been focused on creating easy drinking ales and lagers of the highest quality while representing Colorado’s outdoor enthusiasts! Situated in Buena Vista, Colorado along the Collegiate Peaks and Arkansas River, our micro-brews are inspired by the beauty and wonder of the outdoors and exhilarating adventures surrounding us. Available on tap and in 16 ounce 6 packs.
New CFT Canning Line
We just completed the installation of a CFT canning system that provides a tremendous increase in quality while tripling canning speeds. There are currently less than two dozen in the country. When researching canning lines, Italy based CFT Packaging USA Inc. offered a solution that would minimize oxidation, loss of aroma, and inconsistent fills. The CFT canning line includes an X-Ray fill level analyzer that ensures all cans are perfectly filled while underfilled cans are automatically rejected. Overall, Eddyline’s commitment to quality is demonstrated by their investment into the new canning line.
We are projected to produce 5,500 barrels (bbls) of beer in 2015 and 7,500 bbls in 2016. The new expansion has the capability to produce upwards of 40,000 bbls!
As one of Colorado’s fastest growing microbreweries, we have won many awards over the past few years, including the River Runners Pale Ale receiving a 2014 Silver Medal at the World Beer Cup and a 2012 Gold Medal at the Great American Beer Festival both in the International Style Pale Ale Category. In addition to winning the 2012 North American Brewers Gold Medal, our Jolly Roger Black Lager took home a Bronze Medal at the 2014 All Colorado Beer Festival and our Kickin’ Back Amber Lager received a Silver Medal.
Our Sustainability Promise – Canned 16 ounce 6 packs
We are a strong proponent of canned beers over bottles for these major reasons!
Better for the Environment.
Canned brews have a much smaller environmental impact. According to Novelis, “Currently, approximately 75% of all aluminum ever produced is still in use, a testament to its long life cycle and infinitely recyclable nature.”
Better ability to preserve the quality of the beer protecting it from light and oxygen.
Our 16 ounce 6 packs are suitable to be enjoyed in an outdoor environment and easily transportable in your backpack, kayak or bike cage without adding much extra weight.
