Urban South Brewery releases popular beers in 19.2-ounce cans
Craft brewery able to add size thanks to new canning equipment
Urban South Brewery is rolling out its most popular beers in 19.2-ounce cans in the greater New Orleans area. “The convenience and value afforded by this new can size is the perfect option for our hometown,” said Kyle Huling, Urban South’s co-founder and vice president, in a statement. “We’re excited to make more of our award-winning beer available in the greater New Orleans area. From the French Quarter to the Superdome, visitors can now expect to find fresh craft beer.” The new cans are made possible thanks to a new CFT rotary canning line in Urban South’s packaging department, which allows the canning equipment to easily switch between filling cans of different sizes. Following a successful release at the Great American Beer Festival, Urban South has released 19.2-ounce cans of the new Jameson Caskmates: Irish Bayou Stout. The company also will move its barrel-aged releases to the can format, it says.
