Cans have been all the rage in craft beer for the last few years. Beginning this month, McMenamins is joining the party with the launch of 16 oz. cans of longtime favorites Ruby Ale and Hammerhead Ale. Both will be available to go at all of McMenamins' 54 locations across Oregon and Washington. Both can be purchased as singles ($2.75 each) or 4-packs ($10). The brewery sent me a few samples that I'll be packing away to enjoy on an upcoming camping trip.
While Ruby and Hammerhead are the only two beers that McMenamins cans at the moment, you can stop by their 23rd Avenue Bottle Shop to pick up a custom filled Crowler of any of their draft beers or ciders.
To celebrate the launch of the cans, McMenamins wants you to show them your cans! Share a social media pic of the new cans using #McMenaCANS and @McMenamins and you'll earn a chance to win McMenamins Hammerhead overnight stays, Ruby Spa certificates, as well as other goodies.
