Hello Pitts Meadow!
We installed our first 8 shooter in the the Vancouver BC area at Foamers’ Folly Brewing Co. Foamers’ Folly is a great family Brewery. This is a special destination if you ever go to Vancouver and want to find some amazing beers.
About Foamers Folly
Rob has Cold Brew Nitro Coffee on tap as well as a Nitro IPA and a few other Nitro Beers. A real treat. They have won multiple awards for their beer. After hanging out and running the Martin Robotics 8 Shooter with them for a while, it is easy for our installers to understand why. Foamers Folly really has a passion for Craft Beer. Check out their line up here. Bonus- they have some fantastic swag! Pick some up along with a pint when you’re in Pitts Meadow.
Gordon arrived first for the Foamers’ Folly Brewing Co. installation of the Martin Robotics 8 Shooter Beer Bottling Line. Then, right before Christmas, Eric traded out with Gordon to finish the job off and give some training. Rob picked up the training of the 8 shooter like a sponge. He was born to handle this machine.
While there we bottled 2 Brite tanks off and the machine performed flawlessly – not one broken bottle nor a single crown malfunction. We bottled at 1675 bottles per hour on 22 oz bombers! But, at that pace,it was hard to keep the machine fed. Pre-boxed bottles have some advantages over glass pallets, but pre-boxed glass does require more effort during loading. If you look at the pictures you can see what a nice job of getting even fill levels the 8 shooter does. The Martin Robotics 8 shooter is designed to bottle multiple different sized bottles using a counter pressure method that is unmatched in the craft beer industry. It can easily be changed from 22 oz bottles to 12 oz bottles in under 5 minutes.
