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!
