Duff Beer

buy duff beer cans

Brewed in Springfield and delivered by Duff Man himself, this beer…OK not really, but if you’ve longed to work at a nuclear power plant and live next door to Flanders you can take your fantasy one step closer with Duff Beer ($39).  This German Lager comes in at 4.7% ABV and though it does tend to be a bit flavorless and boring, the legendary brew is probably just as recognized as Budweiser across the world.  If nothing else, it’s a great addition to your Simpsons memorabilia collection.

Sixpoint Resin

It was about one year ago when Sixpoint Craft Ales began releasing their four year-round beers in cans, and they’ve recently announced a new addition to the core lineup, Resin.  Named after the resinous buildup in hop cones when they reach maturity, this Imperial IPA of 9.1% ABV and 103 IBU starts with a strong hop bite which then gives way to a caramel back and a finish of pine.

Sierra Nevada Begins Canning its Beer

Sierra-Nevada-Pale-Ale-Cans

Sierra Nevada is having a busy week, just days after announcing their new brewery to open in North Carolina, they unveiled their new canning machine which will be sending its first run of aluminum to shelves in about 2 weeks.  And that 2 week delay between canning and shipping can only mean one thing, natural carbonation.  So the little yeast particles you love so much from your Pale Ale bottles will be right where they should be.  Sierra Nevada aims to have the 12-packs of Pale Ale on store shelves in mid-February along with 4-packs of the Torpedo Extra IPA.  The cans should be available everywhere by Memorial Day.

Just days after 21st Amendment’s Bitter American earned a spot on the Washington Post’s “Top 10 Beers of 2011”, the brewery announced that it would be distributing the brew year-round due to a deluge of angry emails and letters when they pulled the previously seasonal canned Pale Ale from the shelves.  Described as a Session Pale Ale with only 4.4% ABV, Bitter American was traditionally sold as a winter seasonal as a “perfect antidote to the big beers of winter”.

Flying Dog Brewery Making Big Changes in 2012

18 Dec

Flying Dog Brewery

Flying Dog is a great example for gauging the craft beer industry’s success and potential in its relative infancy.  An announcement in June by the brewery to shrink distribution costs left 13 states without Flying Dog’s beer and seemed to be a sign that the company was struggling to remain profitable.  The change paid off however and Flying Dog is up 25% in 2011 with a majority of that increase coming from areas local to the brewery (Washington D.C. and mid-Atlantic territories).  Now, for 2012, Flying Dog will be distributing new metal packaging for its beers; that’s right, cans.  The first brew to be canned will be the Underdog Pale Ale but Flying Dog has plans to can their other brews, including some of their 12 new releases scheduled for next year.  It’s exciting to see the craft beer industry thriving and evolving.  Cheers Flying Dog!  Follow the link below to see the full article on BrewBound.
