Hub Labels: Ultra-thin VANISH films to Jailbreak Brewing Company to help expand craft beer line

Jailbreak Brewing Company, established in 2013, is a production craft brewery located in Laurel, MD. Their artfully crafted beer is meant to be an escape from whatever drama is present in your life.

They don’t use artificial ingredients and most of their beers are vegan and certified kosher; using mainly regional, fresh ingredients to make their beers. In addition to serving their beers to hundreds of restaurants, bars and retailers across the state, they also operate a taproom. While sampling one of the brews you can watch the brew team making the next batch of fresh Jailbreak beer.

An ideal solution to pre-printed cans

“The clear labels on cans are the perfect solution for our limited releases and seasonal flavors. With much shorter lead-times and lower minimums than using pre-printed cans, this has been an easy and painless expansion of our craft beer line”, says Kasey Turner, from Jailbreak Brewing Company.

“The labels on the cans look great and because they are clear, the cans still have a no-label look. We were able to install an automated applicator on our existing packaging line, which made the process much easier to transition. We look forward to working with the Hub team to package our entire limiter release line up.”

Hub Labels is committed to environmentally friendly printing practices. Their unique approach involves printing with eco-friendly water-based and UV inks, and recycling inks, liner waste, and water. They are also involved in programs to increase the use of renewable energy, decrease all waste in and outside of the plant, and are always exploring more environmentally responsible materials and manufacturing procedures.
