Craft Beers In Cans
Craft brewers are hoping their customers don't mind getting canned. Harpoon Brewery, for example, will add its own canning facility. Wachusett Brewing Co. is hoping canning other brewers’ beers will justify its $1 million-plus investment in a canning line.
Canned versions of the company’s Blueberry Ale and Green Monsta IPA are scheduled to hit store shelves in early May, and Wachusett will also can 5,000 gallons of Ipswich Ale Brewery’s popular Summer Ale, this year. And, after paying an upstate New York brewery to can seasonal versions of its Summer Beer, IPA and this summer, its UFO White, Harpoon said it will add its own canning line next year.
