LOUISVILLE, Colo. — Brewing education pillar
Siebel Institute of Technology and filling equipment leader Wild
Goose Filling have joined forces to advance quality beverage
packaging. Through combined experience, research and testing, the
collaboration establishes comprehensive educational resources that
strengthen beverage filling knowledge and practices.

Siebel Institute of Technology—America’s oldest brewing
school—has educated brewers worldwide through specialized
curriculum for 148 years. As one of the world’s first educational
brewing institutions, Siebel Institute’s alumni are found in
almost every major brewery around the globe.

Wild Goose Filling harnessed decades of experience in beverage
filling systems to become a global leader in craft canning and
bottling equipment. The company’s patented innovations helped
make reliable packaging a viable in-house option for small
breweries and other craft beverage producers. Drawing on
longstanding brewing industry experience—Siebel Institute is
nearing its 150th anniversary and Wild Goose recently installed its
1000th canning line—the collaboration arose from a mutual
commitment to excellence in brewing education, practices and
equipment. With specialty programming using a Wild Goose canning
system, Siebel Institute can demonstrate packaging processes in a
live production setting and offer hands-on canning equipment
experience to develop student skill sets.

Said Christian R. von der Heide, president and CEO of Siebel
Institute, “I am delighted for our partnership with Wild Goose
Filling. We love innovative companies and leaders in their field.
We can showcase to our students how smaller scale can filling and
seaming works, achieving great quality and shelf life. For Wild
Goose, we are the go-to school and educator when it comes to all
things brewing. Our pilot brewery is now enhanced with the ability
to leverage can format for our consulting, training and trial

Wild Goose Filling’s chief executive officer Chris Fergen
said, “Promoting knowledge and advocating for quality strengthens
our entire brewing community. We at Wild Goose stand on the quality
of our equipment, and Siebel Institute of Technology’s reputation
for excellence is unmatched around the world. Our relationship with
Siebel Institute means individuals are best prepared for success in
their brewing career, which in turn helps the global craft industry
flourish and grow.”As more craft breweries around the world
choose to implement canning systems, packaging equipment knowledge
and training has become increasingly important to successful
brewing operations.
