Juneau brewery offers 2 beers in cans


by Your Alaska Link News Team

It's a big change for a Juneau-based brewery.

Reports say that the Alaskan Brewing Co. in Juneau on Monday started offering its flagship Alaskan Amber and Freeride American Pale Ale in 12-ounce cans.

Co-founder Geoff Larson says there's been numerous requests from customers for canned beer. He says cans are lighter and more portable than bottles - especially when taking part in outdoor activities like backpacking, boating, fishing and just being on the beach.

The canned beer is only currently available in Alaska. The Juneau production plant doesn't have enough room right now to produce enough canned beer for the Lower 48 markets.

However, the brewery recently broke ground on a multimillion dollar expansion. The canned beer will be more widely distributed once the larger facility has been completed.
