Bookhouse Brewing will release its first canned beers Aug. 31 — Celestial Map IPA and Island Gigantism Double Dry-Hopped Double IPA.

"We’re just trying to spread the word about what we are doing and thought cans would be a good way to do that," co-founder Luke Brevoort said.

The Cleveland brewery, which will celebrate its one-year anniversary in October, is working with Iron Heart Canning and Sixth City Distribution.

The 7.2% Celestial Map, which comes in 12-ounce six-packs ($11.99), and the 9% Island Gigantism, which comes in 16-ounce four-packs ($13.99), will be available at the brewery starting Aug. 31. They will be released at select retail outlets the following week.

Island Gigantism features Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand. Co-founder and brewer Vaughn Stewart described the flavor as "very tropical and bridges the gap between wine and beer."

Brevoort and Stewart want to see how the sales go before committing to future can releases.

"It's a dipping a toe in the water," Stewart said, adding that their top priority is taking care of the customers in the taproom.

As for the upcoming anniversary, the brewery is planning to offer special draft releases. Bookhouse fans can expect plenty of barrel-aged beers, some stronger beers that have been aging and "a bunch of fun stuff like that," Stewart said. The anniversary is Oct. 6.
