21st Amendment Brewery Selects Ball Cans
Mar 15, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
21st Amendment Brewery has launched Lower De Boom barleywine style ale in cans provided by Ball Corp.
"Traditionally, due to their higher alcohol content, barleywines were served in small bottles," said Shaun O'Sullivan, co-founder of 21st Amendment Brewery in San Francisco, in a release. "Lower De Boom is a powerfully balanced, American-style barleywine packed with citrusy Pacific Northwest hops, making the 8.4-oz. 'nip' can the perfect size to pay homage to the past."
"By being the first craft brewery to put their beer in our 8.4-oz. can, 21st Amendment has found a unique way to differentiate their brand in a manner that pays tribute to the past," said Robert Miles, senior vice president, sales, for Ball's metal beverage packaging division, Americas. "Distinctive can size and graphics are two great ways that brewers can elevate their brands in the marketplace. And because cans are impenetrable to oxygen and light, the result is better tasting beer, which is crucial to every successful brewer."
Lower De Boom will be available in stores and on draft in bars by April in 17 states that are part of 21st Amendment's distribution territories.
Ball Corp. is a supplier of packaging for beverage, food and household products customers, and of aerospace and other technologies and services.
