Next month, West Sixth Brewing Company (Lexington, KY) will start bottling their Deliberation Amber in February 2013. This is in addition to their widely popular IPA.

From the press release:

We continue to be the only brewery in Kentucky to can beer. We love the can because not only does it help the beer stay fresher longer than a bottle, but it is also much better for the environment. Cans are much more likely to be recycled than bottles, and they can be taken lots of places that bottles can’t – like at a pool or on the lake.

We love the design of the new can, which was designed by local artist Brian Turner of Cricket Press. It resembles the look of the IPA can with an obviously different color, and the use of grains instead of hops in the design.

Congratulations to our friends to the East on their exciting news. Can’t wait to see it in liquor stores and bars here in Louisville!

With a little help from his friends, LouisvilleBeer.com has become *the* place for craft beer news, reviews and events.
