You've been asking and Carton Brewing Company has delivered! On Thursday, August 29 during tasting room hours, the first cans of Boat Beer will be available for purchase at the brewery in Atlantic Highlands, NJ.
After partnering up with New England's Iron Heart Canning, Carton was able to get the first batch of Boat Beer cans ready just in time for Labor Day weekend in the Garden State. While the brewery hopes to have their own canning line up and running in the future, this mobile service could allow them to generate around 400 cases at a time, although availability will be infrequent.
Cans will be available in 4-packs of 16oz. cans for $12 each, or in cases for $60. There will also be a limit of 2 cases per person, per day to help spread the session IPA love.
Boat Beer is a hoppy session ale designed to deliver the bold, bright flavors of an IPA without the dizzying alcohol punch which traditionally accompanies the style. At 4.2% ABV, this serves up a flavorful hop bite layered onto a mild malt backbone with a crisp, lingering finish.
Carton Brewing Company is located at 6 East Washington Ave. in Atlantic Highlands. The tasting room is open Thursday/Friday from 5-7:30pm and Saturday/Sunday from 12-5pm.
