Roanoke Railhouse cans beer on site

Posted: Updated:
ROANOKE, VA -

The Roanoke Railhouse spends their second day canning craft beer with help from the Old Dominion Mobile Canning Company.

Back in May, the company canned about 240 cases of Roanoke Railhouse beer, which all sold off of the shelves pretty quickly. Today they were back, working to can even more cases of the locally brewed craft beer.

The Roanoke Railhouse does have the ability to bottle their own beer, but they say the canning process can be a lot quicker.

"We can do about four bottles a minute," says President of the Roanoke Railhouse Brewing Company, Steve Davidson. "This machine does 36 cans a minute. So they should be able to can in about three hours what it takes us nearly two days to put in bottles."

Today about 300 cases of beer were canned.
