Outdoor friendly

Revolver Brewing now will offer four of the brewer’s signature beers in cans for the first time. “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 that adds American Mosaic hops, it adds. Sidewinder Southwest Pale Ale is brewed using agave nectar, citrus, maize, spices and finished with Citra hops. Full-Tang IPA includes four hops and tangerine peel. “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.”
