Back Forty Brewing (Gadsden, AL) will soon join the can revolution with initial offerings of Naked Pig IPA and Truck Stop Honey in 12oz cans.
As with others offering craft beer in cans, the usual reasons apply. Benefits of aluminum vs. glass, the fact cans are allowed more places, etc.
The initial offerings will be available starting in March. Later in the spring, look for Freckle Belly IPA and Fence Post Session Ale. to join the initial offerings.
The Back Forty Brewing can lineup will be available in Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi.
