One of your favorite Wisconsin beers is now available in cans. Moon Man from New Glarus Brewing started delivering to stores this past Monday.
“We’re really excited because not only are hoppy beers really great in cans, this is an all Wisconsin package,” Deb Carey tells Wisconsin’s Morning News. “The guys in Waukesha at KHS- they made our filler, the Balkan people in Jefferson- they of course made the can, and Menasha put together all the packaging for that 12-pack.”
Carey admits that keeping it local does raise the price a bit, but to her it’s well worth it.
“It is a little more, but we don’t really care. This is my home state, and you have to support local. At the end of the day, you’re paying for quality.”
Another New Glarus favorite is, of course, Spotted Cow. Carey says that also could soon hit shelves in cans.
“We’re hoping not too far down the road. We’ll see how the Moon Man goes over, but I’m thinking before the end of summer.”
