Carolina Brewery now offering Sky Blue Golden Ale in 12 ounce cans

Pittsboro, NC - For the first time, Carolina Brewery has begun offering its award-winning Sky Blue Golden Ale in convenient six packs of twelve ounce cans. The new packaging opens retail opportunities for Carolina Brewery's expanding network of distributors statewide.

"We are very excited to offer our craft beer in cans for this summer season," says Carolina Brewery owner Robert Poitras. "We chose the can for a variety of reasons including its ability to go places where bottles are not welcome such as pools, golf courses, boats and
beaches. Cans have a low environmental impact and ease of recycling which further attracted us to cans over bottles."

For those desiring a lighter beer that still has handcrafted integrity, this beer is a Kolsch style ale made famous in its namesake city of Cologne (Koln in German). This thirst-quenching brew is spritzy, not too malty, with the pleasing aroma of imported Hallertauer hops. While fermented warm like all ales, Kolsch beer undergoes a cold aging period like a lager which results in a brew that is complex yet easy to drink.

Sky Blue Golden Ale is the first Carolina Brewery beer offered in 12-ounce cans. The company will continue to offer Sky Blue Golden Ale and their other signature beers in 64-ounce growlers and by the keg for its wholesale customers. Since expanding brewing operations with the opening of its Pittsboro location, Carolina Brewery has dramatically expanded its wholesale distribution. With the recent addition of R.A. Jeffreys in eastern North Carolina to the coast, Carolina Brewery beers are now available in bars, restaurants, grocery stores and other retail accounts from the beaches to the mountains of North Carolina.
