Next month is the 21st anniversary of the Toronado and last night they hosted the release party for the new cans from 21st Amendment Brewery & Restaurant.
21st Amendment’s Chief Hop Head Shaun O’Sullivan and Chief Watermelon Officer Nico Freccia show off their cans.
In 21 years, this was the first tome the Toronado ever sold beer from a can.

Since these are being contract or “partner” brewed isn’t this a step away from being a craft brewer? I understand the finances of the whole thing and how it makes sense, but I for one like to know that my beer is brewed locally and that I might know the brewer and see them around town. That is part of the allure and satisfaction of “craft” beer for me.
I see it like buying grass fed beef from a local farmers market where I buy right from the farmer vs buying grass fed from chain supermarket where the meat might be shipped from across the country.
I’m not saying that operating this way is wrong, only that it isn’t what I myself would support as far as craft beer.
