MadTree Brewing Co. doesn’t have any plans to can its popular Dreamsicle – a vanilla-orange kolsch that tastes like the childhood summer treat that it’s named after.



But fan Adam Marcum is determined to change the Cincinnati brewery’s mind.



The Fort Wright, Ky., resident has launched a Change.org petition urging MadTree to release Dreamsicle in cans. It's available now only on draft.



His online petition had 156 supporters, as of early Tuesday morning.



“Dreamsicle is that one light beer that just makes sense,” Marcum said when asked why he’s so interested in the beer being canned. “It's lighter than most, super sessionable, and tastes like summer. If I'm taking friends who don't normally drink craft beer, I suggest that first and it's a hit. It's also a hit with veteran beer drinkers as well.



"There is something really complex and ingenious about this beer. The sad thing is they don't distribute it out to restaurants or can it for retail. I made jokes on a national message board telling people it's ‘the beer they don't want to share with you.’”



MadTree played a cruel joke on Dreamsicle fans on April Fool’s Day when the brewery posted a photo of Dreamsicle in a can with the phrase “Coming soon” on its Facebook page. (See it above.)



“Folks freaked out,” brewery co-founder Brady Duncan said in an email. “Many knew the joke. Many did not and were pissed.”



Now, he said, the brewery gets requests daily from its passionate fan base.



Duncan noted that Dreamsicle is the top-seller right on draft now at the brewery tasting room. But there still are no plans to distribute it in cans.
