Punk IPA in a can!
This is a subject which has previously caused extensive debate on our blog and saw a landslide victory in favour of cans on our online poll. On the 10th of February, Punk IPA will finally be ready to rock in cans.
The cans will be filled at Daniel Thwaites, I am going down on Wednesday to oversee the filling and will post some pictures of the first BrewDog canning run. The beer has been brewed at BrewDog, dry hopped and lightly filtered at our Fraserburgh HQ as usual.
We will be sending the beer down all ready to package, to the same very lightly filtered specification we use on our bottled and kegged beers. We will also be bypassing the pasturization part of the process meaning the beer in the can will be not pasturized and only very lightly filtered leaving all the amazing hoppy flavour to explode out of the can at you when your crack it open!
As always we want to hear your thoughts? Who is excited about the prospect of our little hop bomb in a can and who wishes we stuck to bottles?
- Sounds good. Non-pasteurized beer you say? Mmm. What would the shelf-life be then? As long as bottled beer? Lucy09.02.2011
- brilliant idea. thats the beers for festival season sorted. how much is a case going to cost? andy compton08.02.2011
- Brilliant idea - and fantastic packaging. It'll all come down to cost and, above everything else, taste. I have high hopes! Leith Dave08.02.2011
- You'll be telling me that the rest of the big four (Thornbridge, Marble, Dark Star) will start kegging and canning next...
Or maybe just the original big four will headline Sonispshere. Either way, I'm happy and CAMRA does a little sick onto its cardigan. Black Sheep will do that to a man...mr. chopper07.02.2011
- I just wrote about whether brewdog Punk IPA in a can is the first TRUE craft beer in a can the UK has seen.
Would welcome comments from anyone!Neil, www.eatingisntcheating.blogspot.com07.02.2011
- Chuffed about this cause now I can happily drink BrewDog at Festivals! Sam Rodwell07.02.2011
- This is a game changer Adrian07.02.2011
- Well i love the new dry hopped punk IPA in bottles so i'm looking forward to the unpasturised version very much! Tom Archer06.02.2011
- Is there a difference in taste from migrating to the can? I think on of the big things that I notice in glass vs. can of the same beer is that the glass usually tastes better. It could be a placebo but I have seen it in multiple beers. Jeremy Kainowski06.02.2011
- It almost seems to make more sense in a can than a bottle. Let us know where it's likely to be available. Needs to be under £5 for a 4-pack, though. PeterE05.02.2011
- Yes. Can good. Beer good. Want buy can beer. Ian05.02.2011

- I'm excited by it, I think the cans look cool,will be nice to have a few that fit between the shelves and I'm glad you are not pasteurising them.
Can't wait to see them - where will they be available?The Ormskirk Baron05.02.2011
- Naturally it will be substantially cheaper than the bottled version? What sort of shelf life do you get form a no pasteurised can? I'l be giving it a go.. but still from a glass... Darcey05.02.2011
- Definitely a good thing! The packaging looks great. Will the cans be hitting the supermarkets? Dubbel05.02.2011
- The Maui beers you sell, especially the Big Swell IPA, are all the proof that cans require:
Really looking forward to tasting some Punk-in-a-can to see how it turns out.
I expect it's going to be an excellent addition to our hiking kit. :)Yvan05.02.2011
- I do think this is a very good idea, finally you can drink good beer without the feeling that you should drink it from a glass. If it only would reach our northern villages! Augustine from the north05.02.2011
