On March 29th, we proudly present to you a creation that has been months, if not years in the making: our Nitro Can Coffee Stout.
**UPDATE** WE HAVE SOLD OUT. THE NEXT CAN RELEASE WILL BE ON MAY 17. STAY TUNED FOR MORE UPDATES.
We've been developing methods for creating a nitro can without a widget (the little ball in traditional nitro cans). The process we developed, along with Chart Industries and River City Cannery, enables us to nitrogenate our beer during the packaging and produce a finished product that pours just as well (if not better) than a nitro tap.
We will be producing lots of these cans in the coming months and you can expect a variety of beers to come out of these experiments including multiple Coffee Stout varieties, malt-forward beers, and Sweet Potato Ale (look for that in the fall).
Our first canning run produced roughly 2000 cans. These will be made available to the public directly from the brewery on March 29th. You can pick them up for $3/can (the limit will be established day of). This is our introductory price to test market reaction on a wider scale. After we sell out (which may very well happen that day), we'll be hosting limited releases at bars in the Philadelphia area. You can currently find cans at MOMs in Doylestown.
Storage and Pouring Instructions
As you may have guessed, this type of package requires a "vigorous pour." Contrary to your muscle memory, please pour the beer vigorously into the glass - this is an important step as it mimics the effect otherwise produced by the restrictor plate in a nitro tap. Pouring vigorously agitates the solution and allows the nitrogen to break out and cascade in the glass. If you pour gently, you will end up with a beer with no head.
Please choose a glass with a flat bottom and tapered lip. Believe it or not, there is a science behind glass geometry and nitrogenation.
For optimal flavor, enjoy fresh, do not age.
