Almanac Beer Company Releasing Cans Beginning this Summer
Almanac Beer Co. Releases Beer in Cans
Almanac Beer Co. begins packaging four year round fresh beers in cans.
Almanac Beer Co. is proud to announce the debut of four year-round beers packaged in cans for Summer 2016. These new and revamped offerings include: Craft Pilsner, Mandarina, San Francisco IPA, and Saison Dolores.
Brewed and canned in San Francisco in collaboration with Speakeasy Ales & Lagers, these new beers highlight freshness, flavor and aroma. The decision to can the Fresh Beer Series stems from increased shelf stability and customer portability that only cans can offer.
“We are incredibly excited to be offering these new beers, in a new package,” said Jesse Friedman, Almanac’s co-founder and brewmaster. “We rebuilt all of our year-round beers to make these incredibly delicious, bright, flavorful beers designed to be enjoyed outside and with great food. We can’t wait to see our beers popping up on beaches, in parks, and the like.”
Craft Pilsner: Almanac’s Craft Pilsner is a crisp, dry-hopped lager that provides a new age twist to the traditional German style. Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe, and Mandarina Bavaria hops provide a melon and citrus nose backed by 100% Pilsner malt. This beer is crushable, always begging for another sip and pairs well with sushi, outdoor grilling and quenches spicy dishes.
Mandarina: Mandarina’s tart and citrusy profile makes it the perfect beer on a warm, sunny day. The combination of crisp tartness, tangerines and the citrus notes of Mandarina Bavaria and Citra hops, puts this farmhouse ale’s fruity aroma over the top. Pair this summer sipper with beaches, sand, fresh seafood and citrus desserts.
San Francisco IPA: This West Coast IPA features an explosive aroma of citrus, tropical fruit and dankness from a blend of Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe, Hallertau Blanc and El Dorado hops. Intensely hoppy without overt bitterness, a light malt backbone balances this IPA, giving it a clean finish and making it a beer to be enjoyed again and again. Inspired by San Francisco but brewed to be enjoyed everywhere. Enjoy with Super Burritos, Hangtown Fry, cioppino and in the company of artists and friends.
Saison Dolores: This West Coast spin on a saison highlights tropical and floral aromas. An expressive fermentation provides hints of pineapple and white pepper, while a dry-hop of Mosaic and Hallertau Blanc doubles down on aromas of mango and cracked wheat. Enjoy this aromatic farmhouse ale with foraged mushrooms, funky washed rind cheeses and al pastor street tacos.
All four beers from the Fresh Beer Series will be available for California distribution in 12-ounce can six packs and on draft throughout California in mid-summer. Expect to see these beers throughout Almanac’s entire distribution footprint shortly after.
