Tuckahoe bottler at a glance

Written by 

Tuckahoe Cases

One more out of Tuckahoe Brewing …

The folks at the northern Cape May County brewery have been putting their new six-head filler to work turning out cases of 12-ounce bottles. Last week, they put up 22 cases of Holly Beach Pumpkin ale with the Meheen filler.

The plan is to bottle all of the flagship beers, such as Dennis Creek Pale Ale, to help manage fermenter capacity and widen the brewery's reach some without undercutting supply to core accounts.

About the filler
Tuckahoe's filler (check the photo gallery at left) is a popular machine among craft brewers of varying sizes, including a 15,000-barrel craft brewery. Company owner Dave Meheen says Anheuser-Busch even uses the fillers when it's bottling for test markets or bottling samples for lab testing.

And while we're on the subject of bottles and bottlers, the video below was shot in July at Flying Fish. That's 200-250 feet of conveyor, moving empty bottles from pallet to filled cases. The beer on this day was Hopfish IPA.
