Eight Degrees: now in cans, with new beer and award-winning favourites
Eight Degrees: now in cans,
with new beer and award-winning favourites
This week, Mitchelstown’s Eight Degrees Brewing launches its first beer in can format.
Brewery co-owner Scott Baigent said: “We know that a lot of our customers are into outdoor activities - things like camping, mountaineering, music festivals and kayaking - and that cans work especially well in these environments.”
“We've definitely seen an increased demand for cans in recent times and, despite our ongoing love for the 330ml bottle, are releasing three of our beers in 440ml cans.”
“First off is our latest limited edition beer, Neon Velvet FPA, a kiwifruit and lime-infused pale ale, which will only be available in cans or on draught.”
Eight Degrees is also packaging two long-standing customer favourite beers into cans: the multi-award winning Full Irish Single Malt IPA and Citra Single Hop IPA.
The brewery decided to go with a new design for the new format, featuring some bright, fun and vibrant labels to pair with shiny new cans.
The beers are being dispatched from the brewery today, Monday 5 March, so they should be available at off licences from onwards.
“We're very excited,” said Baigent, “and we're really looking forward to hearing what our customers think.”
