Montavilla Brew Works is the latest to brewery to transition from draft only to packaged beer in cans while we continue to face the government ordered shutdown during the COVID-19 pandemic. The market segment for packaged beer during this Coronavirus outbreak is leading more and more breweries to package its product in either cans or bottles as draft sales continue to plummet.
Beginning Tuesday, April 28th, Montavilla Brew Works will begin selling Flam Tap IPA, Körabräu Helles Lager, and East Glisan Mosaic IPA in 4-pack, 16oz cans. The brewery will also be selling its Palo Santo Wood Aged Porter in single, 16oz cans. Additional one-off beers will be released as production allows.
“We originally had plans to start canning in commemoration of our fifth anniversary this July,” said Michael Kora, MBW founder and head brewer, in a statement. “The COVID-19 shutdown signaled the perfect time to shift focus, finalize our ideas and start packaging some core beers, exciting seasonals and one-offs. We’re meeting this challenge head on and believe there are always alternatives.”
