Major Announcement: We’re canning our second beer – our Amber!

by Ben on January 14, 2013

blank_canWe’re excited today to make a major announcement:  we’re moving forward with canning our second beer.

We’ll begin canning our Deliberation Amber, under the name West Sixth Amber, next month.  This beer has been available on draft in Lexington for a few months, and the response has been tremendous.  We’re excited to be able to offer it to our fans in a can.

We continue to be the only brewery in Kentucky to can beer.  We love the can because not only does it help the beer stay fresher longer than a bottle, but it is also much better for the environment.  Cans are much more likely to be recycled than bottles, and they can be taken lots of places that bottles can’t – like at a pool or on the lake.

We love the design of the new can, which was designed by local artist Brian Turner of Cricket Press.  It resembles the look of the IPA can with an obviously different color, and the use of grains instead of hops in the design.

We hope you’re as excited as we are about this big announcement. The cans are on order — look for them in just a few weeks!

GREAT NEWS!!! Will it be available in Louisville?

I’ll buy a six of each. I love the IPA.

It should be available in both locations at roughly the same time — 3-5 weeks -

Congratulations!

One of our artists is a huge beer aficionado. We will have to pick some up for him as a bonus! :)

As much as I admire West Sixth, I couldn’t fall in love with the IPA. Hey, we’re all different. The Amber Ale is a different story!

I buy your cans at Unlimited Spirit on Southland Dr. You have, in my opinion, the best-tasting IPA I’ve ever drank. I look forward to your Amber.

I really like the IPA, tastes like something straight from the Pacific northwest. That is a compliment by the way. Love those types of IPA. Yours has hit the bullseye with flavor. I am not sure what to expect with your Amber Ale but based on the IPA I bet it will be outstanding!

Well it is out, the amber I mean and it is not so good. Just my opinion. I am not sure what they were trying here, Scottish or English brown ale, but it think it needs more work. Tastes like something BMC would come up with to pretend to be craft brewers.

I am digging the Bryan Turner’s can design. Any chance there will be IPA or Amber posters available at some point?
