PACKAGING SOLUTIONS

Facility


Our facility is based over 6,500 sq. ft. and consists of tank storage for rough beer, a bottling and packaging hall, and storage facilities for dry goods and finished products. Our facility is SALSA accredited and ideal if you are seeking to supply multiple retailers.






 

Storage

Successful packaging starts with optimal storage and conditioning. All beer packaged on our site is chill conditioned -1° C to preserve shelf life and stabilise the beer. Once stabilised, we offer a variety of filtration methods from sterile filtration to unfiltered including bottle conditioning with a choice of yeast.

Our careful checks throughout the storage and chill conditioning phase ensure that the beer packaged has good shelf life with consistent carbonation and haze levels specific to the beer being packaged..

Labelling

The flexibility of our packaging also extends to labelling, where we are capable of offering full wrap, front back and neck or full wrap and neck combinations for bottles. From 2017 we will also be able to offer labelling for cans.

The quality of the label can have a huge impact on the end product and we can recommend a number of high quality, cost effective labellers who can assist in producing unique labels for the craft brewer.

End of Line Packaging

End of line packaging can be selected and includes cases of 12 or 24, 330ml, cases of 12 500ml and shrink wrap and tray, before palletisation and shipping.


What our Clients say

  • “We have used South East Bottling for a number of years now and have always found their service very efficient and professional. They are extremely helpful and are flexible to suit our needs. The whole process from booking our bottling slot to receiving our beer back runs very smoothly.”.

    — Old Dairy Brewery —
  • “We started using SEB when a site re-development meant we could no longer Bottle ourselves. A concern for us when choosing a contract bottling service was the whether the contractor would be as passionate as us about producing great beer but with their background firmly in Brewing we can be sure that the team at SEB share our focus on quality at every stage of the process. Also impressive has been how easy they have made it, simply put, we brew the beer and they take care of the rest!”

    — Rebellion Beer Co —
  • “We have been using SE bottling for over 2 years now. From day one they have shown great professionalism and flexibility. Finding a contract bottler who understands the brewer’s needs are few and far between, SE Bottling’s understanding, flexibility and knowledge allows us to package our product the way we expect it with great results.”

    — Tiny Rebel Brewery —
  • “We feel South East Bottling provide a highly impressive first class service for our needs at Westerham Brewery. They consistently meet our unpredictable shifting deadlines, and rapidly respond to our requests without hesitation. We would happily recommend their services to everybody looking for a top quality bottling company.”

    — Westerham Brewery —
  • “The flexibility and quality of South East Bottling are the stand out reasons for any aspiring craft brewer to use their services. The team are passionate about the beer that they package and are able to provide practical, effective advice to help you minimise losses and maximise quality. We would not have won so many awards for our beer without their ongoing support.”
