Why did we choose to add aluminum cans to our lineup? The reasons are simple:

Oh, the places we will go. Aluminum cans will never replace our glass bottles, but we're excited to be able to offer a way to enjoy Hangar 24 Craft Beer in places where glass isn't ideal. Think of all the places where you’d like to enjoy Hangar 24 but can’t have glass… At the river. On the course. By the pool. On the trail. Aluminum cans are durable and portable and will be the perfect addition to any of your outdoor activities. The possibilities are endless!
The Environment. Aluminum cans are environmentally friendly. The average aluminum can is made from 44% recycled aluminum and at a rate of 58%, is the most recycled package in the world. Cans also weigh less than glass and require a fraction of the energy that glass does to produce, ship and recycle.
The Beer. Aluminum cans protect beer from oxygen and light, both of which destroy a beer’s flavor. The can’s opaque aluminum keeps all of the light out and the airtight seal protects the beer from oxygen.

But what about the metallic taste!?

Aluminum cans used to package beer have a water-based polymer lining that protects the beer from any metallic contamination or flavors. If you drink directly from the can and your lips touch the aluminum, you may certainly taste it, but rest assured that the beer doesn’t carry any aluminum flavor. Pour the beer in a glass and give it a test!

Orange Wheat and Helles Lager will be released in 12 oz. cans in the Tasting Room on Sunday, December 9th. Retail distribution begins December 17th. Check the Find Our Beer page soon for up-to-date distribution details.
