Wicked Weed Brewing Co. is releasing a new beer in cans just in time for Independence Day.
When it opens today, the Asheville, N.C.-based brewery will be releasing cans of Watermelon Saison, a 4.7 percent ABV saison which, as its name suggests, is brewed with watermelon. The beer was first released as a draft-only option by Wicked Weed in 2013, and this is the first time it has been packaged.
This is the third time that Wicked Weed has packaged former draft releases in cans, after French Toast Stout (8.8 percent ABV) was released in January and S’Mores Stout (9.8 percent ABV) was released in March, although both of those beers were sold in 16-ounce cans.
According to a post on the brewery’s Instagram page, Watermelon Saison will be packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce cans and it will be a brewery-only release when it goes on sale today.
