Some big fat cans are showing up at beer stores and bars in Ohio. Mission Brewery of San Diego has released its 32-ounce cannons — yes, that’s what it calls them — in the state following their popularity in California.
"We’re the little brewery with the huge package," Martin Saylor, Mission’s national sales director, said in a prepared statement. "The idea of our luscious beers in a gigantic quart can cracked us up, and no microbrewery has ever done them before."
Shipwrecked Double IPA and El Conquistador Extra Pale Ale are available in the big cans.
"The cans also make 32-ounce curls possible, sound extra loud when tied to newlywed bumpers, and you can water the lawn with the empties," brewery spokesman Marty Jones said in an email. "Jokes aside, they also allow us to ship about 50 percent more beer/case, at less weight, than a case of 22-ounce bombers. These cans have been a big hit in our home state, we think folks in Ohio will also dig them."
