Moat Mountain launches brown ale in Rexam can

Moat Mountain Brewing in the US has launched its Bone Shaker Brown Ale in new 24oz cans supplied by the UK-based consumer packaging company Rexam.

Rexam aluminum cans are said to deliver durability, portability and increased freshness for beer. Besides, the cans serve as a sustainability choice with a recycle rate at more than double compared to other beverage packages.

Moat Mountain Brewing owner Steve Johnson said aluminum can packaging is embraced by craft beer consumers in increasing numbers.

"At the same time, there is continued growth in single serve packaging. By working with Rexam, we were able to embrace both these trends and bring our beers to market in a 24 oz. can that consumers love," Johnson said.

Moat Bone Shaker Brown, an English-style brown ale, has a malt body and medium hop bitterness and is 5.5% alcohol by volume.

Moat Mountain began packaging its beers for distribution in 2011.
