Anheuser-Busch last week announced some $15.5 million to upgrade bottling lines at its brewery in Fort Collins. The lines will shift from packed to bulk glass, allowing the plant to streamline in-house production, reduce emissions and strengthen its supply chain.

The new bottling lines are scheduled to be fully operational this summer.

According to Tim Seitz, general manager of the Anheuser-Busch Fort Collins Brewery, the change from a packed glass to a bulk glass system will help the company be more efficient with its beer production.
