Mobile Canning Truck Fills Millionth Beer at Nelson Brewery

Posted: Updated:

A beer can production line on wheels can crack open a cold one to celebrate its own success.

Old Dominion Mobile Canning filled up its one millionth can Wednesday at Wild Wolf Brewing Company in Nelson County - the same location the company topped off its first can last April.

The beer-filling line travels by truck and now counts eight breweries in Virginia and North Carolina as customers.

“I think it's awesome that the consumers are embracing the beer in cans. It's just so much better. It's better for the beer. It's better for the environment. That million cans says people are really embracing the concept,” said Mary Wolf, owner of Wild Wolf Brewing Company.

Cans are so popular, Wild Wolf increased the number of times it brings the mobile unit to the brewery from two to three canning sessions a month.

The line canned 400 cases of Blonde Hunny Ale in about six hours Wednesday.
