Our local brewery, Thunderhead Brewing, just started canning a braggot this week. Their GoldenFrau Honey Wheat (7.5%) took silver and gold medals in the commercial competition at the International Mead Festival two years in a row and is their best selling beer on tap. The owner just bought the canner and had to commit to a 53' semi trailer full of cans on pallets for a minimum order. That's a big committment for a small brewery! The process, including lining up art and getting federal approval for the can design, took months. This is way cool and I wonder if anyone knows of another example of braggot in a can anywhere else?

That way, I'm no longer that freak on the beach with a bottle opener and tulip glass!

Good to see another small brewery/meadery taking advantage of CASK.COM
