Did you know that our Aluminum Bottle Can is equivalent in size to an industry tall can!?
Soon after our 6-pack bottles hit the shelves of local LCBO and Beer Stores here in Ontario many of our fans started to ask for our product in a single serve format. Well, we got to work! Proudly, in July of 2018 we launched our LagerShed Original in a 473 mL Aluminum bottle can. This unique single serve format provides the same volume as the industry tall can but as with everything we do here at Shawn & Ed Brewing Company, we refused to compromise on quality. Instead of taking the path of least resistance we created something new that no other craft brewer in Canada our size has done. The 473 mL Aluminum bottle can provides beer drinkers with a better quality, unbreakable alternative that keeps your lager colder longer.
Benefits of aluminium over glass
- Keeps beer colder longer
- Larger format
- Environment friendly and recyclable
- Protection from sunlight
Benefits of aluminium bottle over aluminium can
- Better quality (less oxygen pick-up during filling)
- Cleaner drinking surface
- Doesn’t hit your nose when you drink it
- Less bloating (can creates foaming as it goes down)
- Easier to hold
You can find our 473 mL Aluminum bottle at our brewery, the LCBO, The Beer Store and select grocery stores in Ontario. This single serve format retails for $3.25 and is now available with our LagerShed Original. Cheers!
