Over the weekend I was browsing the shelves of a local beer store, buying bottles for friends to enjoy back in Michigan, when I spotted a six-pack of Atom Splitter Pale Ale by Pine Street Brewery. Back in June I helped the owner, Jay Holliday, pack the cans when they’re were being filled by a mobile calling operation called the Can Van.
It was the first time their beer was being packaged in cans, so I documented the occasion. The thumbnails below will walk you through the process. The photos originally appeared on the San Francisco Brewers Guild website.
