Revolver Brewing launches core lineup in cans
Craft brewer highlights growing popularity of canned beer packaging format
Revolver Brewing, Granbury, Texas, now will offer four of the brewer’s signature beers in cans for the first time. The new cans are expected to start hitting shelves this week.
“Texas is a big, hot, outdoor-friendly state, and there are a lot of opportunities here where we think cans will go that bottles can’t,” Revolver Brewing Co-founder Rhett Keisler said in a statement. “Texans like cans — they’re the fastest-growing segment of the craft beer market. They’re lighter, easy to transport and very beer friendly.”
The first beers selected for canning are the brewery’s flagship Blood & Honey American Ale; Long-Range Pils, a new German-style pilsner; Sidewinder Southwest Pale Ale; and Full-Tang IPA, a popular seasonal beer that now will be available year-round, it says.
Blood & Honey is an unfiltered golden ale brewed with malted two-row barley and wheat, finished with blood orange zest, Texas honey and a blend of spices, according to the company. Long-Range Pils is a twist on the traditional German-style lager, staying true to the Pilsner heritage while adding American Mosaic hops, it adds. Representing the region, Sidewinder Southwest Pale Ale is brewed using agave nectar, citrus, maize, spices and finished with Citra hops. Lastly, Full-Tang IPA includes four hops and tangerine peel, which provide a fruity and citrus aroma that is hop forward with a subtle sweetness, the company says.
“While we will continue to offer our flagship Blood & Honey in bottles, cans represent a new milestone in our brewing history,” Co-founder Ron Keisler said in a statement. “This major step forward allows us to reach new locations and situations across Texas.”
