River Dog plans to can beer

riverdogCanning beers is clearly the rage in the craft beer community these days, including breweries in South Carolina. Westbrook will be canning even more beers this year, and Quest and Brewery 85 plan to stick with only caning their offerings. And now, Ridgeland’s River Dog Brewing Co. has announced it too will soon begin producing canned beers.

In a story from The (Hilton Head) Island Packet, River Dog’s Josh Luman said the coastal brewery will start putting its beer in cans beginning later this year. No news on when cans will hit the market or which River Dog beers will make it to cans.

Luman also said the brewery is buoyed by the Pint Bill and wants to make their spot more of a destination location.

“Now, there is a far more compelling reason for people to come visit us,” he said. “In some cases, people have to travel a great distance to come visit our brewery. Now, we feel like we can truly have the opportunity to make this a special place for them and really make it worth their time. This bill will help legitimize S.C. beer in the world beer community.”
