Horse & Dragon Brewing Co. Begins Canning Popular Brews
Ready to get Sad Panda at your local liquor store? The time is now.
Horse & Dragon Brewing Company has officially begun using a Wild Goose canning line, which means you'll finally be able to pick up your favorite brews in your local liquor stores.
5 brands total have made it through the line: Adventure On IPA, Fire Captain Irish Red, Picnic Rock Pale Ale, Sad Panda Coffee Stout, and Almost Summer Blonde Ale. According to Carol Cochran of H&D, the biggest learning curve was deciding between printed and sleeved cans: however, because of the size of their brewery and the "minimum order of printed cans", they're moving forward with sleeved for now.
One thing they want to convey to consumers? Just make sure you peel the sleeve off before recycling, and use reusable containers (growlers and kegs) as much as possible.
It's amazing to see another local brewery try to reach more of the Colorado beer-loving community through cans, and you can bet we'll be looking out for Sad Panda on shelves soon.
