More craft brewers are ditching bottles and making the switch to cans. The rise in popularity of canning is due to a number of factors: easier to recycle, less breakage, more surface space for logo/branding, and no light contamination. Some breweries only can, while others use cans for special releases. Mobile canning companies have emerged in response to the resurgence of the can in the craft beer industry. Cans are the new “thing.” Again.
The past year was the most dynamic in the history of American craft brewing.The combination of entrepreneurial spirit, creative energy and consumer thirst means this will be another explosive year for American beer makers.
Throughout the month of January, Beer Works fans will have the opportunity to critique and vote for their favorite brews.
The “Battle of the Brews” is an in-house beer competition between Beer Works’ own brands and will take place at all six Beer Works locations. Starting January 5th, for just four dollars, participants are given four different 4 oz. samples of beer and a voting ballot. The four beers are two different styles, with two varieties of each style. The contenders are:
Back Bay IPA vs. The Contender IPA
Pale 2 vs. Big Boy IPA
