Founders Brewing Co. will be giving fans of one of its most popular year-round releases a different option to drink out of.
The Grand Rapids, Mich.-based brewery will be canning Dirty Bastard, its 8.5 percent ABV Scotch-style ale that is brewed with seven varieties of malts. The cans are made by Ball Corporation, who also worked with Oskar Blues Brewing to develop the one-use Crowler system, which uses one-use aluminum cans that are both filled and sealed with a custom machine that features a design based on one commonly used for canning perishable food.
Dirty Bastard was first released in 2003 and currently is packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles.
According to filings with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), the classic release will be packaged in 12-ounce cans. An email sent to the brewery for additional details was not immediately returned.
