Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA is officially the first can released by the Delaware based brewery.
There is no doubt that can beer is all the rage these days. Recently, Stone Brewing added cans, and Lagunitas tacks on their first can starting in July. Looking at the top small/craft breweries by production in the United States, Sierra Nevada, New Belgium, Bell’s Brewery, Sam Adams, and Yuengling all can at least some of their core and seasonal releases.
As for Dogfish Head, the brewery unveiled revamped artwork across their portfolio at a special event during the Craft Brewer’s Conference in Philadelphia earlier this year. Tucked ever so discreetly was a teaser of the brewery’s aluminum plans.
“Early on in the craft brewing renascence I was underwhelmed with the canning technology for craft beer…But times have changed, equipment has evolved, and we’ve designed a beautiful, state-of-the-art Krones can line that delivers the quality and consistency our consumers have come to expect from our beer.” – Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head founder and President
The brewery’s flagship 60 Minute IPA (seen above) will officially be the first release, launching in the mid-atlantic states by the middle of November. Expect to see 60 Minute across the brewery’s entire distribution network in 2017.
