The Ontario brewer said today its annual canning capacity will jump to 900,000 hectolitres as part of the investment, which includes a new can line. Overall packaging capacity will rise to 1.4m hectolitres per year.

Waterloo Brewing said the canning increase will improve its competitiveness. "The aluminium can is fast becoming the container of choice in beer and beverage alcohol and this new line will double our canning capacity," said Waterloo Brewing CEO George Croft. "From our owned brands to our co-pack business, this new capacity equipment adds a critical component to our upcoming growth plans."

Founded in 1984 as Brick Brewing, Waterloo Brewing changed its name last year to that of its home town in Ontario. Last month, the company launched Seagram Island Time Tiki Mule Cocktail as an expansion of the vodka-based RTD cocktail Seagram Island Time portfolio.
