Creature Comforts Tropicalia, the Athens, Georgia based brewery’s top-selling beer, and one of the Southeast’s most popular India pale ales, is coming to 16-ounce cans this summer.
Creature Comfort’s massive success has a lot to do with Tropicalia. This balanced, juicy IPA has a very loyal following, so much so, that for a while stores would limit sales of this year-round beer to just one 6-pack per person.
For the loyal Tropicalia acolytes, expect a new format coming your way this summer – Tropicalia 16-ounce cans. The pint-size cans are a hot packaging format in the beer industry, and for Creature Comforts. 16-ounce “Trop” cans are a no-brainer. The brewery has been releasing 16-ounce cans for a while now, but only for their taproom/small batch releases.
David Stein, Creature Comforts co-founder and head brewer tells Beer Street Journal that fans can expect this larger can format sometime in June 2019. He also noted that the 12-ounce cans will remain in the brewery’s lineup as well.
Availability: 12oz Cans, 16oz Cans, Draft. Year-Round
Debut (16oz): June 2019 (Estimated)
