Hood River, OR – Full Sail Brewing Co. is canning ridiculously tasty craft beer like crazy with the recent installation of their top-of-the-line Krones Craftmate can filler.
“The market has moved in the direction of cans,” says Collin Godkin
Filling at the rate of 250 cans per minute, the Full Sail brewery’s canning line can handle its own Session and Full Sail brands, as well as take on contract brewing
“It’s an exciting time to be at Full Sail, navigating new water, breaking the mold and figuring out new territory,” says Godkin about the new canning line, contract canning and upcoming innovations. The 21-year Full Sail veteran and newly appointed director of brewery operations moved to the Gorge in the 90s because he had heard you could windsurf and ski – in the same day – and hasn’t looked back since. Overseeing maintenance and plant operations, along with the new canning system, Godkin has grown with Full Sail and grown his own family in Hood River, just a few blocks from the brewery.
