Why We Can

As a new brewery with the plans to package our beer for distribution, we were faced immediately with a decision of bottling or canning our beer.  We were most familiar with bottled craft beer; but thanks to some innovative breweries in the US, craft beer in cans was not a completely foreign idea.

Since we also care a lot about our great outdoors, we are conscientious that an aluminum can is easily recyclable.  Over 50% of aluminum cans are recycled after they are emptied.  Aluminum cans are made from recycled metal, and they weigh much less, too, further reducing the environmental impact of the can because they take less energy to ship.

One of the things we love about the Ozarks are the many outdoor activities—fishing, canoeing, floating, hiking, biking, trail riding, camping, and the list goes on!  The thought of crafting a beer that could be enjoyed in any of the aforementioned settings was one we could not ignore.  We knew that we wanted to put our craft beer in cans; as each of our beer cans says, “Pack it in.  Pack it out.  Enjoy nature.” 

Piney pints are like a mini-keg—they are going to provide the closest possible taste of draft beer to you when you are drinking it.  Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • An aluminum can provides 100% protection from harmful UV rays of the sun which breaks down the quality of beer. 

  • Very little oxygen is allowed in the beer during the canning process, and the sealed lid prevents any oxygen from penetrating the beer inside the can.

  • Today’s aluminum cans have a protective layer between the can and the beer, preventing any off flavors in your canned beer.

  • For ultimate flavor, aroma and enjoyment, pour one of our perfectly preserved pints into a glass.

Piney River Beer is canned in 16-ounce pint cans.  When you crack open one of our cans to pour into a glass, you will truly have a pint, or, as we like to say a “Piney pint”.  With craft beer in a can you no longer have to sacrifice great taste for convenience.  At Piney River Brewing we want you to have the time of your life when you’re enjoying our Ozarks!
