Craft Beer

The can: a new revolution for craft breweries.

Crafting beer is an art form. Just like with any masterpiece, it takes considerable time to develop the perfect batch. Once those efforts reward you with a refreshing finish, you’re going to need the right package to compliment the beer. Today, craft breweries are choosing cans. And what’s not to love about them? They block the light, they’re airtight, they’re infinitely recyclable, and nobody knows cans better than Ball. We apply the same analytical precision used on our space vehicles to bring you a portfolio of aluminum and steel metal packaging products that continue to propel the craft beer can revolution.

    Cans Are Cool

Not just a can, a canvas.

You can’t have a craft brewery without a brand to support it. One of the many benefits of the can is that it provides marketers with a little extra real estate, making the branding opportunities endless. Ball is the leader in developing compelling graphics to help you stand out among the on-shelf competition, from photo-realistic imagery to Thermochromic and Tactile Ink solutions.

Attention to Detail

From the big picture to all the tiny moving parts, we treat every detail with the same level of importance. You have to when you manufacture more than 50 billion recyclable cans a year. When you walk into one of our manufacturing facilities, you’ll see that every stage of the manufacturing process is done with careful precision and world leading manufacturing technology. These streamlined techniques start at stage one with the coil cutter and continue all the way through to the can’s end.
