Texas Ale Project’s (T.A.P.) cans are now on shelves. Today, the Dallas-based brewery will hold a party in celebration of its new canned beers: 50 FT Jackrabbit IPA and Fire Ant Funeral Amber Ale.
“We are constantly being asked when our craft beers will be available for take-home purchase” says Kat Thompson, the brewery’s president and CEO, in a press release. “So we are incredibly excited to offer our ales in cans.”
“This has been an incredible year of growth for us, and launching our ales in cans is the obvious next step,” said Brent Thompson, the brewery’s co-founder.

The actual product design was done in partnership with Saputo Design and Speck Communications.
Initially, the brewery will release Fire Ant Funeral Amber Ale (6 percent ABV) and 50 FT Jackrabbit IPA (7.2 percent ABV) with packaging being done by Armadillo Mobile Canning. However, a press release indicates T.A.P. is also working on plans to install an on-site canning line in their Dallas production facility late next year.
Update (Nov. 21, 2015) — The cans are now released. This story was originally published on Oct. 11.
