Michigan Mobile Canning Helping Brewers in Michigan and Indiana


Andrew and Scott of MMC celebrate the end of the first run with Russ Springsteen of Right Brain

The state of Michigan, okay, fine I'll say it, MichiCAN, currently boasts over a dozen craft breweries that can their beer. Contributing to this steadily growing number is Michigan Mobile Canninga mobile canning outfit founded by Andrew McLean and Scott Richards, two craft beer lovers with a desire to help brewers get their beers on shelves. 

Back in June the two flew out to Colorado for a week of training with Ron Popma of MobileCanningSystems, LLC. The duo then made the 19 hour drive back to Michigan in their new outfitted 18-foot box truck. Two short days later they wheeled their Wild Goose MC-250 into the brewhouse at Right Brain Brewery in Traverse City and canned their first beer, Right Brain's Will Power Pale Ale. 


Canning Oval Beach Blonde at Saugatuck Brewing

Andrew and Scott, both native Michiganders, were the third affiliate of MobileCanningSystems to actively can craft beers, and within a few weeks potential customers from across the state and Indiana were calling. In less than four months since that first run they've completed over a dozen canning sessions at Right Brain as well as Wolverine State Brewing Company in Ann Arbor and Saugatuck Brewing in Douglas.

Recently Michigan Mobile Canning headed south to Indiana (during which the nickname of their line changes from “MichiCan” to “IndiCana”). Setting up shop at Flat 12 Bierwerks in Indianapolis, Andrew and Scott put the brewery's Half Cycle IPA in cans - which you can now find at Lucas Oil Stadium! Today Andrew and Scott can be found canning the one and only Leprechaun Lager at Four Horsemen Brewing Company in South Bend.

With a steady stream of interest coming from breweries in both Michigan and Indiana, look for more craft cans from both states in the coming months.
