It is expected that it will allow the company to manufacture beer packed in aluminum cans. The expected capacity of the new automated line is 60,000 half-litre cans or 80,000 0.33-litre cans per hour. At the present time this is the most productive beer canning line in Russia. The production of a new sort of beer, called Baltika Pshenichnoye (Wheat) #8, created by the brewery's specialists, began recently. The new beer will be packed in half-litre bottles and poured from tap in the city's elite bars. It is planned to output about 4 million litres of wheat beer this year. Photo by A.
