News has come out from Avery Brewing Company’s headquarters that they will be experimenting with low-alcohol “session” beers that they plan to can.
“We’re really known for our strong ales and our forays into that genre,” says Avery Brewing spokesman Joe Osborne. “But we’re always innovating, period.”
The brewery has always made great, massive, high-alcohol beers, but sometime next year, we can expect to see Avery releasing a trilogy of low-alcohol beers that will be in cans rather than bottles. As of right now, the brewery is experimenting with a couple of those beers: a hoppy ale called 3Point5Session, a small stout, and possibly even a weiss beer.
“We’re trying to find sub-4 percent ABV beers with a lot of flavor. The end goal is to can them, but we’re still in the proving stage of 3Point5. And as for the small stout, they haven’t even let anyone out of the tasting group try it yet,” Osborne adds. “It’s hard to do it well and do it consistently, so you’re starting with a challenge right off the bat, but great brewers are always going to challenge themselves.”
