Mother’s Brewing Company (Springfield, MO) has just launched canned options for the craft beer drinking public.
The first options include two offerings from their year round lineup:
Towhead: Towhead is Mother’s little blonde baby. We’ve captured a subtle blend of sweet, fruity flavors—well suited for close examination yet balanced enough to go down smooth, clean, and crisp when you just want something cold and tasty.
Lil’ Helper: Mother’s Midwest Coast IPA is hopped in both the wort kettle and aging vessel for a sharp, clean bitterness and fragrant citrus hop flavors.
We’ve put a lot of time into planning for these cans, with our fans in mind, to ensure that they were perfect,” says Jeremy Wicks, Director of Sales and Marketing. “There is so much outdoor activity that happens during the summertime in the Midwest, whether it be at the lake, river, or pool. We wanted to offer people a way to take Mother’s with them anywhere their summer activities take them, and cans are the best way to accomplish that.”
The brewery says more cans are on the way, with decisions and timeline to be made in the near future. Look for six packs of both Towhead and Lil’ Helper everywhere that Mother’s Brewing Company distributes.
Current distribution: Springfield, Kansas City, Columbia, Cape Girardeau, Rolla, and Sedalia, as well as Kansas City, KS. and Northwestern AR including Fayetteville, Eureka Springs, Bentonville, and Ft. Smith.
