In 2012, after ten years of packaging in kegs only, we began bottling our beers using a state-of-the art German engineered filler. The gentle and hygienic handling of the beer in this bottling line allows for all of our beers to be absolutely identical to the draught version. We insist upon better than industry standard dissolved oxygen levels in our bottles in order to maintain the “fresh from the aging tank” flavor that we desire.
In late November of 2015 we finally took the next big step by starting to package 12oz. bottles of Switchback Ale and Rotating Specials. Rather than use the standard longneck bottles, we package in short-neck bottles. Switchback is the first local brewery to make use of this bottle style, which we lovingly call "stubbies".
All of our beers are left unfiltered and as a result, we encourage you to mix the yeast back into the beer to experience it as originally bottled. Watch the video below to see some examples of how you can do this.
