The 21st Amendment canned beer that I’ve been following are now officially for sale, according to a press release I received this morning from the brewpub.
From the press release:
Today, Monday May 8th at 11:30AM, the 21st Amendment is proud to announce the release of it’s infamous Watermelon Wheat and 21A-IPA. in cans. That’s right Cans! A better package than glass bottles, lighter and more convenient.
25 craft breweries across the country are putting their hand-crafted beer in cans and having great success. Your first beer was probably in a can. Most likely a light domestic that would of not tasted any better in a bottle. Times of changed. The technology surrounding can design and the lining within the can have created a product that surpasses the standard glass bottle. Cans are impenetrable to light, keeping the beer fresher, longer and they do not leak as they have no crown tops. An all around great package.
Whatever your perception was about cans, we challenge you to change. Just as there was a time when you switched from light-insipid domestic beer and tried your first craft beer and were blown away by the flavor, come and crack open a “cold one” of one of the 21st Amendment’s hand-crafted beers and challenge your perception.
Imagine your first sip, out of a can, of our award-winning 21A-IPA, a beer that is 7% alcohol with a huge hop aroma and over-the-top-bitterness or the infamous Watermelon Wheat brewed with fresh watermelon and perfect for hot summer days. You will be very surprised.
I helped very briefly with some of the canning last week and will have another photo report to complete this story up on the beer blog in the next day or so. Also, look for my review of the IPA in a can later this week. The IPA cans are cooling in my refrigerator as we speak but there are deadlines to meet before I can crack them open.
