Fans of Avondale Brewing Co. will soon get to enjoy two of its beers in cans for the first time starting on Oct. 30.
Only two of Avondale’s offerings will be available in 12-ounce cans to start: Battlefield IPA, a 6.5 percent IPA that uses west coast hops along with American and European malts and Pachyderm Pale Wheat, a 5.5 percent wheat ale. Previously, all of Avondale’s beers had been distributed only in 22-ounce bottles.
Cans of the two beers will be available first at an event on Oct. 30 at the brewery, with full distribution beginning on Halloween day. Other beers in Avondale’s lineup are expected to be canned sometime in 2015.
Founded in 2012 by brothers Coby and Hunter Lake, Birmingham, Ala.- based Avondale Brewing Co. is housed in a 119- year old building that has been home to a fire station, a pharmacy, a bank, and even a brothel during different points in its history and has distribution throughout the state of Alabama.
