North Coast Brewing Co., Fort Bragg, Calif., released its Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout in a 16-ounce can.

Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout is produced in the tradition of 18th Century English brewers who supplied the court of Russia's Catherine the Great, according to the company.

As part of its mission to "Make the World a Better Place, One Pint at a Time," North Coast Brewing Co. is at the forefront in the field of sustainability and philanthropy. Old Rasputin cans will initially be released in recyclable four-pack boxes, without environmentally harmful plastic in the packaging, it says.

Jeffrey Ottoboni, chief executive officer of North Coast Brewing, indicated that he is "beyond proud to feature this iconic beer in the new package, continuing company efforts to respond to market needs in new and innovative ways and to fulfill its responsibility to the larger world community through its sustainability efforts."

Old Rasputin has been brewed and distributed as one of North Coast Brewing's core beer brands since it was launched in 1995, celebrating its 25th anniversary this past April.
