Craft brewer launches cans
Big Wood Brewery, a bold new player on the craft beer scene gaining notoriety for its distinctive brews, has launched four of its award-winning craft beers in cans.
All four of the 16-oz aluminum cans are from Rexam.
“We always knew we wanted to launch our unique craft beers in cans,” said Jason Medvec, president, Big Wood Brewery. “Cans provide complete protection from light that helps preserve freshness. They also offer us a lot more space to tell our branding story. Through our partnership with Rexam, we have the perfect package for our beers.”
Big Wood Brewery also benefits from the many additional advantages of cans, including portability, durability, and the fact that cans are the most sustainable beverage packaging choice in the world, as they are said to be recycled at more than double the rate of any other beverage package.
Big Wood Brewery beers in cans are currently available at bars, restaurants, and retailers across Minnesota, Wisconsin and North Dakota.
