Boulder, Colorado and Pasco, Washington – Meheen Manufacturing and Wild Goose Canning announced today that they have combined their businesses. The exciting combination brings together the leading manufacturers of bottling and canning solutions for microbreweries and a deep, diverse group of talented and passionate people.
The Meheen-Wild Goose team now boasts the unrivaled ability to serve the industry by providing complete retail packaging solutions to microbreweries and other craft producers. Meheen and Wild Goose will continue offering and supporting their current products. At the same time, they look forward to harnessing their unified experience, industry knowledge and ingenuity to build on their tradition of innovation.
“We’re thrilled about the Meheen-Wild Goose partnership and the opportunities it creates for our customers and employees,” said Dan Cleary, President of Meheen. “Both Meheen and Wild Goose are passionate about supporting craft, and together we’ll be uniquely positioned to do that. We know some craft producers prefer cans, some bottles and many want both. Our team will now be empowered to help microbreweries and other craft producers select and purchase the world’s best packaging solutions – cans, bottles or both – for their needs and preferences.”
“This combination makes tremendous sense on so many levels,” said Alexis Foreman, the President and one of Wild Goose’s founders. “Wild Goose and Meheen have crossed paths for years, and we’ve come to recognize we have a lot in common – from our dedication to serving craft, to our tradition of innovation, to a long list of common customers. When the opportunity to join forces arose, we immediately saw the benefits it would generate. We’re looking forward to taking advantage of the best both companies have to offer to better serve our customers.”

About Wild Goose Canning
Wild Goose is the leading manufacturer of canning machines and related equipment for microbreweries and other craft producers. It all began on a summer afternoon with one unhappy brewer, five cans a minute, two engineers and a few cold ones. When asked to help troubleshoot a local, Boulder-brewery’s faulty canning system, Wild Goose’s founders realized they could not only fix it, but build a better one from the ground up. They debuted the first Wild Goose Canning system in 2011 and found a sweet spot in the craft industry: the need for a small-footprint system that canned beer dependably, inexpensively and was supported by best-in-class customer service. Since then Wild Goose has taken off, and revolutionized canning along the way. Learn more at www.wgcanning.com.
