Sierra Nevada’s Pale Ale To Be Canned?

 

No, Sierra Nevada is not doing away with their most popular Pale Ale, rather they’ll be putting it into cans.

In recent years putting beers in cans was a growing trend in the craft beer world – at least in the American market – but now it seems everybody is jumping aboard the aluminum train.

Craft breweries like Oskar Blues out of Colorado have been using cans from the start. However, whatever your preference – can or bottle – the fact remains aluminum is less expensive to produce and ship thus making it a viable option for launching and marketing your brand of beer. Besides beating glass in price comparison, aluminum cans have always provided more accessibility in a wide range of situations where glass just would be too bulky.

Whether Sierra Nevada decides to put other beers into cans remains to be seen. Regardless of the change, however, there’s no doubt Sierra Nevada’s Pale Ale will remain atop the list of  most beloved American craft brews.
