Catawba Valley Brewing (Morganton, NC) will finally be releasing their beers in cans starting this weekend. This Can-tastic weekend comes after at least of year of testing their lineup in cans. 3 beers find themselves in new aluminum homes on Friday:
Firewater IPA– Paying homage to the original settlers of Appalachia and brewed with natural ingredients such as wheat, corn, American hops and
free range yeast. This crisp refreshing ale is the product of Catawba Valley’s vision of early American brewing.
Farmer Ted’s Farmhouse Cream Ale – This golden straw colored IPA is made with 5 varieties of malts and 6 massive hop additions. It is outstanding in flavor and aromatics.
White Zombie Ale – This beer is refreshing and tasty with a sweet and shimmering frothy head.
These offerings will now be available year round in 12oz cans. On Friday, Jan. 20, Barley’s Taproom & Pizzeria (42 Biltmore Ave.) hosts a can party. You’ll see cans at off-premise retailers this weekend.
