After years of speculation, the rumors will come true next week.
According to Alan Weeth, marketing manager at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, the Milton, Del.-based brewery will begin releasing cans of its beers, starting with 60 Minute IPA (6 percent ABV). In addition, according to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Flesh & Blood IPA (7.5 percent ABV) will also see the new option. Both beers will be packaged in 12-ounce cans.
First released in 2003, 60 Minute IPA is a year-round option that is continuously hopped with more than 60 hop additions sourced from the northwest over a 60-minute boil. Flesh & Blood is a recently released IPA that is brewed with blood orange juice, lemon flesh, lemon peel and orange peel as well as a combination of hops that include centennial, Warrior and a “rare experimental hop to perfectly complement the citrus ingredients and flavor.” Both beers are currently packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles.
In a post on it’s Instagram page, Dogfish Head indicated that cans will be shipping “throughout the Mid-Atlantic” starting next week.
In an email, Weeth told Tenemu that 60 Minute IPA 12-ounce cans are scheduled to be sold in conjunction with the already existing bottles, but declined to comment on any other releases.
