The canned beers will sell in the tasting room for $4 per 12-ounce can and are available for $11.99 per six-pack for carryout, Moore said. A few six-packs may make it out into the marketplace at retailers such as Dorothy Lane Market and Arrow Wine & Spirits, if they don’t sell out quickly in the tasting room, the brewery co-owner said.

Additional can releases are planned through the summer, including a Blond Ale and a Gose or two, Moore said. In the fall, the brewery will switch back to 22-ounce bottles to package its darker, more robust beers. The brewery started bottling beers for retail sale last year.
