New Glarus is not, not canning. Here’s what happened… Again.

New Glarus Brewing is ACTUALLY canning. It’s complicated.

Back in February, New Glarus posted that they were getting a canning line. Due to some unforeseen issues, there was a little bit of confusion. It was, in fact, a KEGGING line.

Here’s what we had to say back then:

New Glarus posted to their Instagram over the weekend, a picture of a new piece of a equipment in the brewery. They asked fans to guess what it was. Judging by the comments, most thought it was a canning line. To which the brewery or PR person in charge of the account confirmed it was a canning line.

That post on the brewery’s Instagram remained unchanged until this afternoon, when they updated it, mentioning their mistake. (See above).

For now, it’s a keg line. Sadly, no known can plans for New Glarus. For now.

The original post is below.

And here is the updated version:

However… Today brought some good news to those of you in Wisconsin and the surrounding area:

So it seems that New Glarus Brewing Co. will be canning after all. 

Moon Man will be the debut can release (in 12 packs) followed by Spotted Cow in the near future. Dates are not set yet for when these cans will hit shelves, but summer in Wisconsin looks bright.

Keep drinking.

New Glarus Is Adding A Dedicated Lambic Cellar

Reason to start drooling.  New Glarus Brewing Co.  (New Glarus, WI) is adding a dedicated lambic cellar.  A lambics is a spontaneously fermented beer, exposed to wild yeasts, instead of cultivated/controlled strains.  In Belgium, brewers like Cantillion allow the wild yeast from around Brussels in the air “breeze in” and ferment the beer.   In the case of New Glarus, the wild yeast and bacteria that will spontaneously ferment (and funk up) the beer resides in the wood of the vessels seen above.

Lambic style beers give rise to other styles, like gueuze, faro, & kriek beers.
