At first, Skol had dimensioned its fermentation and storage capacities rather cautiously, at 100,000 hectolitres. But because sales reached 80,000 hectolitres in the very first year, the brewery continually upsized its tank capacities. By 2017, sales had then risen to 400,000 hectolitres a year – and Skol was coming up against the limits of its bottling capacities, since the returnable-glass line installed (which includes some pre-owned machines from Krones) handles only 24,000 bottles per hour. So in order to meet the continuously rising demand, SBL had to invest in a second line. For this purpose, a new hall was built as a greenfield project, designed to house a complete new line from Krones.
