Eight Degrees Brewing - Choice bro can posterThere’s a wind from the East and it’s bringing some changes – as of next week, some of our gorgeous beer is going to be available in cans.

We know that a lot of our customers are into outdoor activities like camping, mountaineering, music festivals and kayaking, and that cans work well in these environments. We’ve definitely seen an increased demand for cans in recent times and, despite our ongoing love for the 330ml bottle (and those gorgeous 750ml bottles), are – ta da! – putting three of our beers into 440ml cans.

First off is our latest limited edition beer, Neon Velvet FPA, a kiwifruit and lime-infused pale ale, which will only be available on draught or in cans.

We will also be packaging two long-standing favourites into cans: watch out for our multi-award winning Full Irish Single Malt IPA and Citra Single Hop IPA in shiny new cans.

We also decided to go with a new design for the new format so watch out for these bright, fun and vibrant labels.

The plan is to release them into the wild next week (from Wednesday 7 March) so they should be available at a your friendly local off licence very soon.

We’re very excited and we’re really looking forward to hearing what YOU think. Please do let us know!

  1. Delighted to here the news about your new cans. Always loved your beers but to be honest I’m not a fan of 330 ml bottles. I would always prefer 500 ml bottle for take-away. I know the arguments for 330 ml vs 500 ml but I think 440 ml is a great compromise and I will certainly be buying some.

    Can you please get draught in the Dungarvan area.

    Also any chance of getting your metal signs for your shop I’d love to buy one for my Sibin (man shed).

    Thanks again for great beer.

  2. Hi Paul,
    Glad to hear that you’re already a fan of the can format. We don’t currently have any draught in the Dungarvan area but we did send kegs to An Uisce Beatha and Phil Grimes in Waterford and Victoria House in Tramore recently and our beers are also regularly pouring in Tully’s Bar in Waterford. Will check about the tin signs!
