“Sold to Legion Brewing Co. – Charlotte, NC,” declares a sign on the floor of the annual Craft Brewers Conference, currently taking place in Philadelphia, PA.
Underneath the sign rests an elegant machine – its working parts clearly visible behind glass walls – a machine that will one day fill bottles at Legion Brewing. In fact, the precision engineering team who designed and built our new filling machine were so proud of the end result that they asked to showcase it at the CBC.
The Craft Brewers Conference (CBC) is the only industry event that serves both brewpubs and packaging breweries. Presented by the Brewers Association, a recognized leader in the brewing arena, the CBC is an annual show that travels to different cities each year. It offers brewers an environment for concentrated brewing education and idea sharing, with the aim of improving brewery quality and performance.
At Legion Brewing, we are delighted that our machine is part of this year’s conference – on display for each of the 10,000+ brewing industry professionals attending the event. More importantly, we look forward to having it on our brew floor in Plaza Midwood, filling bottles with the very same beer that Legion Brewing customers enjoy daily in our Taproom!
Please don’t start looking for Legion Beer at your local bottle shops just yet though. We’re going to need some time to get our new machine up and running. Shouldn’t be too long though… and we’ll keep you posted…
