Mother Earth Brewing is a 40 barrel brewery in Kinston, North Carolina. The canning line is being added to the space in the brewery that is currently under renovation. Completion of the line installation should be completed this spring, cans by summer, 2011.
First beers to be canned are Second Wind Pale Ale, and Sunny Haze. The bottles will continue to be available, the cans in addition.
President Trent Mooring explains “cans are lighter to transport, and there’s no fear of breakage, but it really gets down to taste- some beer enthusiasts simply prefer the taste of canned beer, believing cans preserve flavor and carbonation better than bottles.”
