Each year, a special commemorative beer is released for The Craft Brewers Conference.
This year’s beer features a collaborative project of 145 Colorado Craft Brewers Guild brewers. You’ll know it as Centennial Pale Ale in honor of Colorado being the Centennial State.
Ball Corporation’s new Dynamark™ Variable Printing Technology, a collection of the 19.2oz cans that will be given to CBC attendees will spell “CBC Colorado 2014.”
A few notes about Centennial Pale Ale:
- Colorado is known as the Centennial State.
- First ever CBC Collaboration brew with 100% ingredients from the host state. Brewed with Colorado ingredients including Colorado grown Centennial Hops.
- The Centennial Pale Ale demonstrates the innovative nature of Colorado’s craft beer culture by being the first ever CBC collaboration beer to be packaged in a can.
- The beer will be packaged in 19.2 ounce single serve cans, first introduced in 2013 by Ball Corporation.
- The Centennial Pale Ale will be the first American craft beer to use the Ball Corporation’s new Dynamark™ Variable Printing Technology.
