Two More Washington Breweries Begin Canning
April 21, 2014 - 9:36 AM- by Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog -
Today I share news of two breweries now canning beer: Schooner Exact Brewing and American Brewing. Just in time for Earth Day.
By this time, I hope nobody needs me to educate them about the virtues of packaging beer in aluminum cans. Today, two more Washington breweries join the craft-beer-in-cans club.
At 3:00 p.m. today (Wednesday, April 16), Schooner Exact Brewing will introduce it's 3-Grid IPA in aluminum cans. The launch party at the brewery will see the first cans of the popular IPA sold for $3. Up north, in Edmonds, American Brewing Company recently completed its first canning run. As of yesterday, you can pick up six-packs of Breakaway IPA at the brewery's tasting room.
No doubt you will start seeing cans of Schooner Exact's beer and American Brewing's beer in bottleshops and grocery stores soon, alongside other Washington-brewed canned beers. Cheers to 7 Seas Brewing for being the first Washington craft brewery to can its product back in 2010. (Take a trip in the time machine and see our post from four years ago.) And cheers to the other Washington breweries that followed in their footsteps, like Two Beers Brewing (blog sponsor), Airways Brewing (blog sponsor), Fremont Brewing, Wingman Brewers, and so on.
