CHICAGO — Acadia Ales has launched its Sky High Rye, a West Coast-style pale ale, in 12-oz. cans from Rexam.
Sky High Rye, brewed with 80% English barley malt and 20% rye malt, was launched in Rexam aluminum cans because of their portability and accessibility, the company said, adding that "consumers will no longer be limited by the restrictions of a glass container, which ultimately makes Sky High Rye more accessible to [our] loyal fans."
"Rexam is pleased to continue its partnership with Arcadia to help them extend their product offerings in beverage cans," Rexam Beverage Can North America president and CEO Rich Grimley said. "Our aluminum can is a great packaging solution for craft beer, and it enables their brand to stand out on retail shelves while delivering superior recycling benefits, as well as distribution and retail display economics."
Sky High Rye in aluminum cans currently is available at select retailers in Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Missouri, Kansas, Pennsylvania and Kentucky.
