Caldera Brewing Company
is located in Ashland, Oregon, and is dedicated to producing uncompromised quality ales, lagers, sodas and cuisine. In 2005, Caldera became the first craft brewery on the West Coast to brew and can its own beer, helping to start a canning revolution. Today, nine of Caldera's most popular beers are available in cans year round and two seasonals, with several more currently available in 12 oz and 22 oz bottles.
Canning at Caldera
Behind the bar at Caldera Brewery & Restaurant, where there are an impressive 43 beers on tap to choose from.
In 2010, due to the huge increase in demand for Caldera's internationally award winning craft beers, we broke ground at our new 28,000 sq ft facility, a 30 bbl capacity brew house and restaurant. Here, Caldera's new canning line was installed, streamlining the packaging process with a capacity of 1,200 cans per minute. This allows for full time production of Caldera's flagship beers, while also allowing for the continued creation of experimental beers using Caldera's old 10 bbl system, which was moved from our old location just down the street. This arrangement allows Caldera to continue producing its line of well known beers, as well as to continue to experiment, a vital process necessary for an innovative craft brewery, as well as for the brewers themselves.
In addition to the 10 bbl system, the extra room at our new facility also allows to store bourbon barrels, in which a few of our most popular beers, as well as some brand new ones, are now aged. Look for these specialty beers at a location near you, or if you happen to be in the Ashland, come join us at the Caldera Brewery & Restaurant off I-5 exit 14 and try a sample tray of some truly unique craft ales and lagers .
These Kentucky bourbon barrels are used to age Caldera's experimental line of beers, which we're told are amazing.
