Summit Brewing debuts cans with Midwest pedigree

For the first time in the company’s history, three of Summit Brewing Company’s 14 types of beer will be available in cans starting next weekend.

And not just any cans. These are cans with a serious Midwest pedigree.

Starting Memorial Day weekend, Summer Ale, Saga IPA and Exra Pale Ale will be available in 12-ounce cans produced with equipment made by a Waukesha, Wis., company. The cans will bear packaging designed by Minneapolis-based Duffy & Partners. The beer itself, of course, is brewed at Summit’s St. Paul headquarters.

Summit’s beers are usually sold in glass bottles. The aluminum cans will make it easier to take them boating, camping and on other outdoors activities, the company said in a statement.
