COVID-19 Updates


The Can Van is OPEN for business until further notice and we have immediate openings for canning. As a fellow small business, we appreciate the scariness of the current environment. Over the last 9 years this industry has helped us become the strong, connected business we are today, and we're prepared to do everything we can to support the craft brewing community in these uncertain times.

As retail package becomes the primary means of selling your beer for now, we've ramped up capacity and our amazing staff is ready to go, adding shifts and preparing to can whenever and wherever they're needed. If you have limited beer available but need to package a small run, we're also waiving the minimum run size in our core service areas. Please reach out to let us know your needs and we'll figure out the best way to make sure everyone gets the cans they need.

We're following guidance from government agencies and the CCBA that breweries are allowed to manufacture, package, and sell beer during shelter in place. We've been in close contact with our material suppliers to minimize disruptions, and have access to all the cans and supplies needed. Finally, as beer industry professionals, sanitation should be a no-brainer, but rest assured that it is at the top of our minds, as it is every day.
