For a normal beer this news isn’t big, but we’re talking about Dandy Brewing here, and people have been struggling to get enough of it into their homes since the opening of their first tap room in 2014. You ready? Dandy….is launching…cans! On June 30, just in time to stock up for Canada Day, happy birthday to me! I mean, uh, Canada.
A little Dandy Sour at the end of a long hike? Mmmhmmm. Some Oyster stout by the campfire? Yes please! Being able to get dandy in cans is going to greatly improve my overall happiness. In actuality these wont be the first beers to come in cans; Bright Young Things hopped wheat ale is coming out in tall cans, as well as a new beer which I am quite certain will blow everyone’s mind, a Pink Guava Milkshake sour, in collaboration with Twin Sails Brewing out of Vancouver. Again, do they think it’s my birthday!?
After the initial two releases, their grapefruit gose will make a brief return a-la-can, and their newest IPA, a full-time addition, will be available. But I assume everyone is still thinking about that guava sour, so I’ll stop there.
Just one side note: if you live in Calgary and haven’t been to their new taproom, do yourself a favour and go. Nowwww!
