Deschutes Brewery Announces the Release of Cans

There is exciting news coming out of Bend, OR. Deschutes Brewery announces three of its main beer brands are now being offered in new, lightweight aluminum cans. That is right! Mirror pond Pale Ale, Pacific Wonderland Lager and Fresh Squeezed IPA cans are currently available for purchase in liquor stores and beer drinking establishments.

Cans will not be replacing the bottle package. All three beers will continue to be sold in bottles.

“We are excited that the new bad ass aluminum packaging will arrive just in time for spring and summer outdoor activities, where the lighter cans can be more easily transported anywhere, for any occasion,” said Michael LaLonde, President and CEO of Deschutes Brewery.

Cans will be available for purchase everywhere deschutes beer is currently sold and at new establishments where glass bottles were not previously allowed.

“I think we may be the last brewery to put beer in cans,” said LaLonde, “but hey, when you’re focus is all about making the beer damn tasty, new packaging may take a little longer.”
