Firestone Walker (Paso Robles, CA) will release their first full production release of cans in February, 2015. The brewery has canned 805, as its own brand last year. This release marks the first Firestone Walker beers in aluminum.
The brewery is kicking off the can lineup with Easy Jack IPA, Union Jack IPA, and Pivo Pils.
“We could have rushed into canning a few years ago, but we wanted the timing to be right,” said brewery co-proprietor David Walker. “The market for canned craft beer is now hitting its stride, and canning technology has come a long way in a short period. Also, cans are a perfect fit for life here on the Central Coast. All of these factors converged to finally reach a tipping point for us.”
At full speed, Firestone Walker’s German-built KHS canning line is capable of producing and filing 400 cans per minute.
12oz Firestone Walker cans will start making their way into distribution at the end of February, and early March, 2015.
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. 12oz Cans (new)
Release: Late February, 2015
