Well, after more than two years of hard work the 21st Amendment’s cans of Hell or High Watermelon Wheat and Brew Free! or Die IPA will be available in stores beginning Tuesday, July 22nd in San Francisco and in Beverages and More stores throughout the state of California. You can find our beer throughout San Francisco at great beer bars and stores such as Benders, City Beer and the Toronado . Please ask your local favorite store and beer bar to carry our canned craft beer and check back often at the 21st Amendment for availability. Both will be distributed by DBI Beverage in San Francisco.
To celebrate, the 21st Amendment Brewery is throwing a “Can Release Party” Tuesday July 22nd at 6 p.m. at the legendary Toronado bar, 547 Haight St. in San Francisco. Please join us!
“Craft beer in a can? Quite CAN-didly, that’s the number one question we get around here,” says Chief Hop Head and Founder/Brewmaster Shaun O’Sullivan. “The can is actually a brilliant CAN-cept all around for craft beer”, adds Chief Watermelon Officer and Founder Nico Freccia. “Cans are simply better for the beer — they keep it fresher by protecting it from light, they are lined so they don’t affect the flavor of the beer and they fit the craft beer drinker’s lifestyle by going places where glass just doesn’t dare — like beaches, pools, boats, parks and golf courses”. And cans are better for the environment. They use less energy to produce and transport, and they are far more often recycled than glass.
• Hell or High Watermelon Wheat, an American-style wheat beer made with hundreds of pounds of fresh pressed watermelon.
• Brew Free! Or Die IPA, a big, hoppy beer to be reckoned with.

Who the heck are these guys? Hey, we’re Nico & Shaun. We live for great beer. In 1920, there were thousands of breweries across America making unique hand-crafted beer. The passage of Prohibition wiped out this great culture. After thirteen years without beer, the states ratified the 21st Amendment, ending Prohibition in America. At the 21st Amendment Brewery, we celebrate the right to brew beer, the freedom to be innovative, and the obligation to have fun.
