Kona goes to cans
Kona Brewing Co., Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, announced plans to offer its Longboard Island Lager in 12-ounce cans by mid-March. All Kona markets will receive Longboard Island Lager in cans, including its newest markets of Pennsylvania, Delaware and southern New Jersey. The company made the switch for portability, specifically noting that cans will allow consumers to enjoy beer where glass bottles are prohibited, such as at the beach or the pool. The cans will launch at the Kona Brewers Festival in March and will be available year-round in six-packs of 12-ounce cans.
