SweetWater Brewing Company will debut two of its most popular, award-winning beers in 12- and 16-ounce aluminum cans from Ball Corporation
“For SweetWater, taste and quality are paramount,” said SweetWater founder and Big Kahuna Freddy Bensch. “Out of loyalty to our beer and to our consumers, we developed our can conditioning process so our customers will continue to experience the same delicious and fresh brews that they have come to expect from SweetWater over the past 17 years. The addition of cans eliminates lifestyle restrictions allowing folks to take their favorite beers to new places where bottles aren’t typically allowed.”
Beginning in the next couple of weeks, two of SweetWater’s most popular beers will be available in 100-percent recyclable, 12- and 16-ounce cans in nine southeastern states, including Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Louisiana, Kentucky and Virginia. The labels will include SweetWater’s two most popular brews, 420 Extra Pale Ale and SweetWater’s famous IPA.
“The fact that more craft brewers continue to add aluminum cans to their packaging mix is a testament to the inherent flavor-protecting qualities of the package,” said Bruce Doelling, vice president, sales, for Ball’s North American metal beverage packaging business. “In addition to the aluminum can’s many sustainability benefits, including the fact that more than 60 percent of the can contains recycled aluminum, cans from Ball will help SweetWater deliver the highest quality beer possible by protecting it from the effects of light and oxygen. It is truly a premium quality package for premium quality beers.”
